Salad Dressing in a Snap

This dressing was inspired by two clients picking a simple dressing with no fat off the internet. We made it healthier w/o soy and enhanced the flavors with fresh herbs. There is no oil in this dressing so during the RESET phase it helps keepexcess fat low as you heal. Some clients complain that vinegar bothers them so if you feel discomfort, save this till after the detox phase

After the RESET phase and into Maintenance, this should be a staple for so many reasons. It’s void of preservatives, artificial flavors, and added sugar alcohols.

Recently I added a touch of good-quality olive oil and served this over potato salad, rice crackers with tomato slices, and a cold chickpea pasta salad. Thanks again, Karen and Laura.
