Salad Dressing

Chris asks… I noticed in your what’s cooking today section that you eat salads almost every day but you never mention the dressing. Do you have any good salad dressing recipes you can share? I’m trying to get my family to eat more salads. thank you.

My Response…

You’re right, I do eat salads every day and the dressings are always olive based and only vary by the type of vinegar I use (or sometimes lemon). I never make creamy dressings because it’s more important to eat healthy fats and olive oil is the most heart-healthy of them all, and it also does wonders for the skin. So I see salads as the best opportunity to get a daily dose of extra virgin olive oil. My combinations are always olive oil plus: (pick one) balsamic vinegar, pomegranate vinegar, white balsamic, pomegranate molasses, cherry vinegar, fresh lemon or lime juice. I’m always looking for new flavors of vinegar and I always add a little salt and freshly ground pepper.¬†– Jenny Jones
