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)!!
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! 🙂
