One simple healthy swap you can make today? Make your own salad dressing at home! Store bought dressings are often filled with not-so-nourishing oils (like canola, corn or soy) and though there ARE some good brands out there (our favorites are Primal Kitchen + Tessamae’s), it’s SO easy (and inexpensive) to make your own at home with simple ingredients.

This is my go-to easy salad dressing:

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp honey

1 heaping tbsp mayonnaise (I prefer avocado oil based)

1 tsp dijon mustard

pinch sea salt

1. Blend or whisk well. Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days. Whisk again, adding more olive oil if needed, if it begins to separate.

make it honey-mustard: add 2 tsp dijon + more honey if desired

make it Italian style: replace apple cider vingear with balsamic. add 1 tsp italian seasoning + a small clove of garlic, minced.

This also happens to be the dressing I love to use on kale– massage it in and enjoy! Stay tuned for my favorite summer kale salad recipe, later this week.
