Someone mentioned the other day that our new salad shakers are great when everyone one wants salad, just not the same salad. Now for the salad dressing – Jeanette Chen from Jeanette’s Healthy Living shared this delicious recipe that has a great antioxidant boost the whole family can agree on! Fats can be the issue with every dressing so picking the right fats will make all the difference. This dressing contains healthy fats such as omega 3’s from extra virgin olive oil and seeds (grapeseed oil, flaxseed) and the highest ranking antioxidant rich herb – oregano. Try to use oils labeled cold-pressed or expeller-pressed – these oils are pressed at lower temperatures and retain their flavor and nutritional value.
