The salad dressing aisle at supermarkets is a crazy place , there are an insane amount of options and truth be told none of them are as good a choice as making your own at home. Many of them use cheap, unhealthy ingredients (such as cheap oils) and add unnecessary sugars and sweeteners. Making your own can be really simple and take your salad to a whole new level of health (who doesn’t want that?!). I chose to use hemp oil as my base here because of its many benefits (plus it’s a pretty cool green color 🙂 ). You can certainly switch it out with quality olive oil if that’s what’s available to you.
1/2 cup of hemp oil
1/4 cup of raw apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until thoroughly mixed. Use over salads or mix some in with cooked grains such as quinoa for added flavor.
with love and healthy salad dressing,
