A Healthier Dressing
Do you know what’s in your dressing? If you bought it from the store, you can just about guarantee that its chock full of calories, fat, sugars and sodium.
Many of the dressings at the grocery store contain a large amount of saturated fat. Start consuming too much saturated fat and you may push your cholesterol numbers into an unhealthy territory.
So many people are lured into covering their healthy greens with unhealthy chemicals. Commercial salad dressings have many unnecessary ingredients that aren’t doing your body any favors.
It almost seems like you’re counteracting the health benefits of the greens with the health detriments in the dressing. So let’s ditch them in favor of this version.
You can prepare this better-for-you strawberry mustard salad dressing in a snap. All you need to have handy are strawberries, olive oil, raw honey, mustard and lemon juice.
Blend, and away you go!
There’s the sweetness from the strawberries and honey, but tang from the mustard and lemon juice. They dance well together and also work nicely atop fresh greens and shredded chicken.
