Fall is here: time to stand in line for PSLs and break out the candy corn.


Celebrate what is, perhaps, the most perfect season ever with some of the finest flavors of fall. Roast those butternuts, grab those greens and get drizzlin’. Every one of these yummy dressings is about to upgrade your autumnal eats to utterly wonderful.


Honey-Chipotle Vinaigrette

Salad dressings

Slightly spicy, sweet and smoky, this easy vinaigrette is best made in the blender. You’ll want a whole batch or more—to drizzle on salads, to marinate meats, to grill planks of salmon. This dressing is so versatile and perfectly captures all the flavors of fall.

Salad dressings

Try pairing it with:

  • Grilled chicken + arugula + mango
  • Taco meat + white beans + spinach + cilantro
  • Rotisserie chicken + shredded cabbage + sliced almonds + diced apples


Cranberry Cranberry Poppyseed Dressing

Salad dressings

This bright pink poppyseed dressing blends up tangy sweet with fresh or frozen cranberries. Kissed with the the satisfying crunch of poppyseeds, it tastes delicious on any recipe that calls for a raspberry poppyseed dressing. Creamier than a vinaigrette, this recipe pairs best with firmer greens like romaine, spinach and kale.

Salad dressings

Try pairing it with:

  • Grilled chicken + spinach + figs
  • Quinoa + roasted sweet potatoes + chopped kale
  • Steak + spinach + sliced apples


Pumpkin Spice Ranch Dressing

Salad dressings

What fall recipe lineup could be complete without a take on pumpkin spice? A swirl of pumpkin and swap of seasonal herbs makes for an absolutely killer pumpkin-spice dressing. Use this as you would ranch—as a dipping sauce for veggies, drizzled over tacos or served atop wedge salads. It’s a fun way to mix up the traditional with a seasonal twist.

Salad dressings

Try pairing it with:

  • Iceberg wedges + peppered bacon + chopped figs
  • Romaine + grilled chicken + tomatoes + grilled corn
  • Roasted brussels sprouts + brown rice + sliced almonds or pecans


Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Salad dressings

If it’s okay, we’re declaring this one our favorite. Like must-try, don’t-miss, all-out favorite. If there’s only one recipe on this list that you’re gonna try, try this one. So easy to whisk together, the flavors of this dressing meld together to create a whole new level of autumn yum. Plus, it’s delicious on everything from meat to greens.

Salad dressings

Try pairing it with:

  • Roasted butternut Squash + spinach + toasted Pine Nuts
  • Sauteed Brussels sprouts + toasted almonds
  • Quinoa + roasted sweet potato cubes + baby kale


Harvest Maple Dijon

Salad dressings

Last but not least, this sweet twist on a creamy Dijon dressing doesn’t require figs, but the addition of fresh or dried fig here is just over-the-top delicious. For a lovely twist, swap out maple syrup for honey. The variation in flavor is subtle but divine.

Salad dressings

Try pairing it with:

  • Arugula + avocado + roasted potatoes
  • Chopped kale + roasted chickpeas + grapefruit
  • Spinach + sliced apples + fresh figs
