Homemade Dressing

September 30, 2013

I hate buying salad dressing at the grocery. I stand there and gaze upon the endless options wondering if what i bring home will be any good. Now to add even more of a challenge, i read every label before i put it in my cart and if it contains soy, high fructose corn syrup, GMO’s of any kind or anything that humans shouldn’t consume then i always choose to pass it up. I have come home frustrated so many times without the dressing that i needed for the week.

Finally, i decided to DIY that bad boy. I went to the mothership of all things DIY (aka Pinterest) and found a simple recipe (cause i don’t do complicated) and realized i had all but 2 ingredient in my cabinets. I love that i can find a way to use apple cider vinegar too! So many health benefits including weight loss, alkalizing my gut…and really the list goes on and on. So i give to you my new favorite salad dressing recipe. It is DELICIOUS!!! I literally eat a ginormous plate of salad daily thanks to the liquid goodness.
