Healthy Salad Dressing

Hello my tribe !

Drowning a salad in a high-calorie, high-fat dressing can easily turn a healthy dish into a diet disaster. The typical commercially prepared dressing is chock-full of industrial vegetable oils, sugar, and chemical additives and preservatives. But you can make your own salads at home and guess what? No exotic ingredients or fancy techniques are necessary. So since you all have been asking me this for a long time, I’m gonna show you today how to craft your own salad dressings with a step-by-step demo on how to make the perfect salad. Start dressing your salads the homemade way, and you’ll never go back to store-bought. So let’s get started.
