Hi Folks! I am back to share a salad dressing that is AMAZING and my favorite dressing in the whole wide world. I first had this dressing at Inn Season Vegetarian Cafe in Detroit, MI a few years ago. Inn Season is also one of my favorite restaurants in the whole wide world – if you are ever in the area – you MUST go.
If you make this dressing – you’ll see why I am so enthusiastic about it. The taste is incredible, makes any type of raw vegetable extremely satisfying and it has so many healthy all star ingredients – One of which is Apple Cider Vinegar. This powerhouse vinegar has been used for centuries as a natural remedy to cure allergies (including pet, food and environmental), sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout.
Additionally, apple cider vinegar can burn some serious booty. It is widely used for weight control, it helps break down fat in the body and can boost your metabolism. It lowers glucose levels – reducing insulin spikes that can lead to weight gain. If you have never tried it in a salad dressing – start today! Remember to buy the good stuff – Bragg’s makes a great version that is organic, raw and unfiltered. The pasteurized version doesn’t have the same qualities so you will be missing out if you don’t buy the right kind.
This recipe makes A LOT of dressing – a huge big bowl that you can use throughout the week. It works well as a dip for chopped veggies too! Yum. It would be perfect to dress your greens this holiday season for friend and family gatherings! Enjoy!
