Change the way you dress your salads with my Simple Healthy Salad Dressing recipe!
Get excited!!! I’ve got another DIY/ life hack video comin’ at ya today. This time around I’m talking about salads and the Simple Healthy Salad Dressing I made up that completely transformed the way I make salads at home.
I used to buy salad dressings all the time, but never loved the labels. After I got back from Italy I had this gorgeous bottle of high quality olive oil to use, so I started experimented with adding just a touch to my salads. I ended up adding some fancy balsamic and eventually a lemon to the “recipe.” Because I’m all about kitchen shortcuts I ended up making it right in the same bowl as the greens. Over time it just became the way I make many of my salads. I decided it was too good of an idea not to share!
Yes, this pretty perfectly dressed salad was made with just one bowl. No mess… no fuss and all healthy ingredients!Check out this DIY Life Hack! The Easiest Healthy Salad Dressing... made right in the salad bowl!
Follow along here in my DIY video….
A simple toss really is all it takes to get a good Simple Healthy Salad Dressing. Look for different flavored vinegars to mix it up. In general this “recipe” is going to be a lot healthier than dressings from a bottle.
In the video I talked about how it’s worth it to splurge on good ingredients when you are making it this way. Since you are only using a few things and so little of it, it’s worth it to buy the bottles that really taste good.
Make sure to give this a try and let me know what you think.
- 1/2 small lemon per serving of salad
- 1-3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1-3 teaspoons vinegar balsamic, champagne, red wine, ect.
- salt and pepper to taste
- Put all the ingredients for you salad in a bowl.
- Squeeze the lemon over the top being careful to not allow any seeds to get in.
- Drizzle equal portions of the olive oil and vinegar over the salad. Start with 1 teaspoon and add more to taste.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
If you have a large lemon or extra juicy lemon you might want to quarter it.
