A Salad a day keeps disease and aging at bay.
Did you know that the word Salad comes from the Latin word "herba salta" or "salted herbs," so called because such greens were usually seasoned with dressings containing lots of salt.
With the hot summer weather arriving quickly, a cool crisp salad can be the basis for a light and refreshing meal. They're easy to make at home, and to order in a restaurant when dining out. And, with their multiple health benefits, consuming a serving of leafy greens each day can be one of the best habits to get into, summer or winter.
To get the most nutritional impact from your salads, today, I have for you a very interesting salad dressing.
What do we need for a perfectly balanced / delicious salad dressing? Yes, a combination of Acid , Fat , Salt , Herb , Sweet and Spice. So given below are a few options under each of these base ingredients.
- Apple cider vinegar
- Lemon Juice
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Himalayan Salt
- Celery stick
4. FRESH HERB
- Orange Juice
- Apple juice
- Mango Puree
- Coconut water
6. SPICE (Optional but must try if you like to spice things up a bit)
- Jalapeno Pepper
Pick one from each and create your combination. Each permutation and combination will make your dressing different, exciting and your tastebuds wanting some more. Actually, If I were you, I would go all in and try each combination till I figure out what works best for my taste buds.
How to get started: All you need to do is add these ingredients to a blender and blend them well. A smooth runny consistency should do and just add it to a bowl of leafy salad or cut vegetables.
