What’s a salad without salad dressing? Most people would agree that it’s not very tasty. In fact, it can be bland and downright boring. A salad with the perfect dressing however – delicious! And when you’re working on getting to a healthy body weight, salad can make an awesome entrée or side dish.
The problem is that most store-bought bottled dressings are loaded with artificial flavors and colors, sodium-rich preservatives, added sugars like high-fructose corn syrup, and even unhealthy saturated and trans-fat. So what’s the solution?
Make your own salad dressing!
Home-made salad dressings are quick to make and healthier than most bottled dressings – not to mention, really delicious. There are endless combinations of ingredients you can try. Experiment with olive or canola oil; yogurt and avocado; wine, cider, balsamic, and other vinegars; chopped garlic, cilantro, and parsley; mustard; spices; and lemon or lime juice.
