Dressing Recipes for Salad Lovers
***Calling all salad lovers***
What tastes better in this hot muggy weather than a fresh, crisp salad. If you're like me you could eat salad every day. Not only does salad make a great meal but it's also good for you. I know, most of you don't want to hear about your favorite food being healthy. But the thing is - it is.
One of the really great things about salads, at least from my perspective, it that you can put any raw vegetable you want in it and it tastes great. You can't go wrong with a dish like that. Not only vegetables go well in a salad but also fresh fruit, nuts of all shapes and sizes, olives, pickles, eggs, and just about anything you can think of.
The only problem for me is the salad dressing. I get bored with only a few to choose from. I think i t's important to have a very large selection. So I started making my own. This way just about every day I have a new combination of salad fixin's and dressings to go with them. It's the only way to go for me. I have to eat healthy so why not make it fun.
In this article I included a few of my salad dressing recipes. If you like them let me know I have lots more. Anyway, you can have your salad and enjoy it too.
