3 Resources: Salad Dressings DemystifiedPosted: July 17, 2011
On any given grocery day, you can find me in the salad dressing aisle scouring the labels. If I added up all the time I have spent trying to find a dressing that wasn’t packed full of bad oils and preservatives, I think I would be horrified by the number. With all I know about what to avoid, I still find myself letting the fatigue of the search for the “best option” get the best of me. Before I know it, I am putting dressings packed with bad oil (dressings these days use lots of soybean oil and canola oil) in my cart.
So, here is a quick list of dressing resources that have helped me:
- Read this article and watch a video of Tamara Brown of Nutritional Weight and Wellness break it down for you. She tells you what grocery store dressings are safe and how to make your own.
- Stop reading this post and buy the Schwarzbein Principle Cookbook. It has so many delicious recipes for homemade dressings. My favorites are her ranch and her thousand island. My kid will even eat these!
- If you are in a rush, a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar or lemon juice drizzled on your salad is a tasty, healthful option.
