Simple spring salad


Simple spring salad

I love making my own dressings, it’s a wonderful way to control the ingredients especially if you’re watching your sugar intake, store bought dressing usually contains a lot of sugar. Not to mention you are cutting down on plastic waste.

Two of my go to staples for the base of an easy dressing is olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Both ingredients have great health benefits especially apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar can help with blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, skin health and acid reflux to just name a few. Unfiltered ACV with all the probiotics is the best but any apple cider vinegar is great.

This dressing works well on any salad but if you’re looking for a super easy salad try crisp romaine and thinly sliced green apple, that’s it, crisp, fresh and so yummy! Or you can sprinkle candied walnuts and shaved parmesan on top for a more dressed up salad. Below is a standard vinegar and oil dressing but feel free to change it up with dill or fresh herbs instead of mustard for a earthier flavor.

·         3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
·         1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
·         1 clove minced garlic
·         1 tablespoon maple syrup
·         1 teaspoon dijon mustard
·         1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Directions: Place all ingredients into a small bowl or jar. Stir until well combined. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
