Killer Salad Dressing!!

20140222-091944.jpg

Most of us have a salad for lunch or dinner daily. It’s yummy, easy & good for on the go… & of course HEALTHY! But…are you putting salad dressing on it? What kind? From a bottle, a mix..? If you are saying yes, then you might want to make a change! Not only are those bottles enemies packed with hidden sugars & salts, they are loaded with chemicals & additives that we can’t even pronounce!!!! I know they are probably creamy & tasty, but full of calories, sugars & chemicals! Those sugar-free, fat-free low cal dressings?? EVEN WORSE! Hello artificial sweeteners & flavors!!! Unfortunately, the list goes on & on & on…artificial coloring, soybean, corn & vegetable oils, poly-something…GROSS! If you are trying to get on the right track, nutrition & health wise, don’t let this bottle salad dressing sabotage your clean eating! Homemade salad dressing is so simple to make and 100 times as flavorful! Here are 2 of my favorite recipes (that take no time at all to make)!!

Balsamic Vinagrette:

1 cup EVOO

1/2 cup balsamic

1-2 TBSP dijon mustard

1 clove minced garlic

S&P to flavor (if you would like)

*Mix everything in a bottle & shake up! I store mine right on the counter! Enjoy!

Lemon Garlic Dressing:

1/2 cup olive oil

juice of one lemon

1/4 tsp. sea salt

8-10 cloves minced garlic

*any other seasonings that you want

Whisk up ingredients & store in a dressing container. On counter or in fridge (gets thick in fridge)

P.S. These dressings can double as marinades! 🙂
