Since finishing our juice cleanse, Jim and I have been eating salads for dinner just about every night. We still have a juice for breakfast and lunch, but for dinner we eat a nice big yummy salad. Before I started the juice cleanse I had a very serious obsession with Ranch dressing. It was really a love/hate relationship that I had with Ranch. I loved the way it tasted but I hated the way it made me feel. The Ranch that I loved so much was full of dairy and soy which I am also allergic to. The one big thing I wanted to change about my diet was eating so much Ranch. I can proudly say that I have been Ranch free for almost 1 month now! I really have no craving for it all. I have started experimenting with making my own dressings. If you look on a dressing bottle at the store you are likely to find 20 different ingredients,most of which you have probably never heard of. This dressing is the best one I have made so far. It is simply AMAZING! This dressing makes salads taste so good that Jim has been asking for seconds. If you are a not a salad lover, than I highly suggest that you try this dressing on a salad. It might just change your mind! It’s easy to make, super healthy and you know exactly what’s in it! What could be better?
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon ume plum vinegar
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar (the light colored kind)
- 1 tablespoon orange juice, freshly squeezed (not that crap in a bottle)
Directions: In a medium mason jar or bowl (whatever you have at home), combine all ingredients. Shake well until combined. Enjoy!
Little Debbie’s Tip: You can find tasted sesame oil and ume plum vinegar at any health food store. They are well worth the price as they will last for a long time!
