Tip of the day: Making your own dressings at home allows you to avoid added sugars and preservatives that are used in almost ALL commercial salad dressings. You don’t NEED refined sugars in a dressing for it to taste great! Try to make your own if you have the time otherwise, look toward buying salad dressings from the natural food isle in the grocery store.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday 🙂
