Homemade Salad Dressing.

I’m a big fan of reading ingredient labels. In fact, I look at the ingredient list on nearly everything I consume. If it has an intimidating list of a million ingredients I don’t know AND can’t pronounce, forget it. And if sugar is one of the first few ingredients listed? I’m likely going to put it back on the shelf. That brings me to salad dressings.

Leafy greens are SO good for you! But the salad dressing that many of us dump on top? Not so good. Often times, sugar is one of the first few ingredients listed on bottled salad dressings, followed by other not-so-desirable ingredients and preservatives. Besides, a bottle of dressing is going to cost you, what, $2-$3? Why not make your own?! You know exactly what ingredients are going in it – fresh, unprocessed, no chemicals, little-to-no sugar, and homemade love! Next time you’re ready to serve up a fresh, crisp salad (or even need a delicious marinade!) give this super simple & quick recipe a try. You may never go back to bottled dressing! Your body (and wallet) will thank you.
