I always like to find new salad dressing recipes. Have you ever tried to eat a salad without a dressing? I used to love ranch, Roquefort and bleu cheese dressings, but they all have dairy and lots of fat. Sure, they taste good, but do we want to take the chance of a future heart attack? Is the taste of oily salad dressings worth damaging our cardiovascular system?

Ones longevity is decidedly not increased by drizzling our salads with plenty of olive oil. Refined oil is not healthy no matter who says it and what kind it is.

Here’s how I do my Pinch of Dill Dash of Vinegar Salad Dressing Recipe…

- 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

- Teaspoon of dill weed
- Pinch of parsley
- 1/4 cup of red onion or yellow
- Mince half a tomato
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Blend all ingredients together in a blender or food processor
I eat salads every day, usually two large ones. I like buying the hydroponically grown lettuce at the store because to me, it’s still living. It comes with its roots. So, I peel or cut what I want off it and it stays good as new in the refrigerator. Be sure to eat at least one large green salad every day.
