If you've never attempted homemade dressing before, then I am here to tempt you.
This vinaigrette takes 5 minutes to prepare and you can store in a dressing bottle to replace other pricey and sugar-laden options found in your grocery store. Another perk? It is SO FREAKING FLAVORFUL. Seriously.
Do I enjoy salad? Yes.
However, I am not the type that can be satisifed with a simple squeeze of lemon. Also, participating in the Whole 30 challenge for the month of June means I am not allowed to have added sugars (refined, natural or artificial).
After tinkering with several vinaigrette creations, this is my favorite.
It brightens up any salad combination and can be used as a marinade as well. Most importantly, it is free of preservatives, chemicals and sugar. You can feel good about adding this to your family's meals and save a few bucks as well.
I am confident that you will soon prefer this to any bottle you'd find in the store!
