Per request, I’m posting a few salad dressing recipes and suggested toppings.
One of my favorites is…
Listed below are a couple other simple recipes.
ROASTED RED PEPPER DRESSING
2 roasted red peppers (I cheated and used roasted red pepper out of the jar)
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons almond milk
Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until completely smooth. Serve chilled.
BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE (by: peasandthankyou.com)
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1-tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ cup olive oil
Whisk together all ingredients except olive oil until well combined. Quickly whisk in olive oil until emulsified.
Additional healthy toppings
Vinegar (try the different flavors)
See, you don’t have to go topless to be healthy. ;)
I don’t use salad dressing very often but the recipe below is a hard one to resist. It calls for organic ingredients, but you know the deal, if you can find them without breaking the bank, that’s great but if not, don’t worry about it.
3 tablespoons organic balsamic vinegar
1/2-3/4 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced finely (Okay, I’ll admit that sometimes, I put a couple more cloves than called for)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2-1 teaspoon organic mustard
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend well. Keep in refrigerator.
