It’s no secret that I love salad. Yup, I’m one of those “weird” (to most) people that love and crave vegetables.
The best way for me to get in a bunch of my favorite veggies at once? Make a huge salad with them of course.
This is why I eat one pretty much every day. It’s what I like, so why not?
One thing you usually always need with a salad is dressing.
I’m very picky about my dressing though. I don’t like the ones that are too heavy, creamy, or overpowering.
I want to be able to taste my veggies, and have a dressing that will go well with all the random salad concoctions I come up with daily.
While most dressings at the supermarket are filled with a TON of scary ingredients, sugar, and sodium, there are some natural ones that I like such as Annie’s.
However, they are expensive. On a college budget like myself, it is worth it, and SO EASY to make your own.
Adapted from Emeril
- 1/4 C. Balsamic Vinegar
- 3/4 C. Olive Oil
- 1 T. Chopped Garlic
- 1/2 t. Salt
- 1/2 t. Pepper
I put all ingredients in a shaker and shook. It’s as easy as that.
This dressing goes well with all different types of salad.
Even with salad with fruit in it. My absolute favorite.
Spinach salad, apples, pears, raw almonds, dried fruit, gorgonzola cheese, and a veggie burger.
What type of salad dressing do you like, lighter based or creamy?
Have you ever made your own? What kind?
