Is bottled dressing ruining your salad? Make your own with these tasty recipes.

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?
