Look, I really hate to bring this up because I feel like the world has enough negavity as it is, but most store-bought dressings and vinaigrettes are really bad for you. Not just a little bit bad. A lot bad. Cottonseed oil. Canola oil. High fructose corn syrup. Those are some of the gross ingredients and I could go on and on and on.
That’s why it’s important to make your own dressings at home, so you can put good stuff in it. This is my new favorite-simple-easy-healthy-multipurpose vinaigrette. I had been stuck on this one forever, but I’m moving on now.
This is absolutely fantastic poured over fresh greens. That’s it. Just greens and vinaigrette. Not a fancy salad, but totally delish. A GREAT side dish to some chicken or fish.
And that’s dinner for you. A simple piece of grilled chicken or fish and a light side salad. Forget the cheesy potatoes. You will not die. Your body will love it.
Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated. Getting your greens in everyday does not have to be overwhelming. Put some greens in a bowl, drizzle, then toss. That’s it. (Okay, add some chopped avocado. Your welcome for that.)
–This was better after it had sat in the fridge for 24 hours.
–I use organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the mother in it. The good stuff. The healthy stuff.
–Using organic dijon will make this healthier.
–Adjust salt and and pepper to your taste. Adjust honey to your taste.
–I usually double this and store in my fridge for a couple of weeks, so it’s ready for my salads. It pays to be prepared.
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil or other healthy mild oil)
- ¾ cup raw honey
- 4 heaping tablespoons dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
- Place all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake to combine.
