Well Dressed Salads

It seems a lot of the women I love are trying to cut calories. So, in full support of their hard work to get back the pre-baby bodies, here are some salad dressings. I don’t want you all being lazy and eating bottled crap full of fillers and synthetic food. Real food. Food with nutrition.

Creamy Horse Radish Vinaigrette

1/2 Cup sour cream

1/2 Cup wine white vinegar

2 TB fresh or dried dill

1 TB horseradish

1 TB salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

Put all the ingredients in a jar (a reused olive or jam jar works well) and shake til uniform. This shaking can be done by your little kitchen helper. Kids like shaking stuff around all wild. Just make sure the lid is on tight. This will last in the fridge for about a week.

This is very nice on a salad of chopped turkey, figs, almonds with spring mix greens.

Vinaigrette Provencal

1/2 Cup EVOO

1/2 Cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 Cup red wine

1 TB sugar (use raw and fairly traded please!)

1 TB salt

1/4 Cup herbs de provence

Again, into the jar and shake shake shake. This one will keep for weeks. Months in the fridge.

This is very nice on Greek-style salads or greens topped with tuna, olives, and cucumbers… lil’ nicoise type action without the fatty eggs and mayo.

Better Bleu Cheese

4 oz bleu cheese crumbled

6 oz low fat plain yogurt

3 TB white wine vinegar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

Shake it in a jar. Keeps for a week. This is WAY lower in fat and is made with real food.  Awesome on buffalo tempeh strips.

  1. Danielle, you’re such a hippie! I love you! And I love this blog. So much better-and snappier-than all the other lame-o food blogs.

  2. I need you to tell me every day to stop eating garbage and only eat real food.
