Try this basic salad dressing! Salad dressings that you buy at the store always have ingredients that are terrible for you (i.e. soybean oil or hydrogenated oils) or ingredients that you cannot pronounce (mainly preservatives). They may make a healthy looking salad taste better, but they are not adding good nutrition. So why not make your own? It is easy, fast, and you only have to make a batch every once and a while. You will get peace of mind knowing exactly what goes into your dressing.
