It is so simple and easy to make your own dressings and vinaigrettes at home. But the main reason I like to make my own homemade salad dressings, instead of store-bought dressings is that I can control the type of oil in the dressing. Many dressings, even high end, organic dressings are made with “seed oils” (canola, safflower, sunflower, soy, corn, etc.) which some doctors consider to be toxic in high amounts, because of the way they are processed. I am making a concerted effort to cut back on these seed oils.
So here we are using extra virgin olive oil.
What type of Apple Cider Vinegar to use?
Use raw, unpasteurized, apple cider vinegar with the mother in it. The “mother” in Apple Cider vinegar is the harmless, healthy bacteria in the vinegar that gives raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar all its healthy probiotics- so good for gut health. It lowers insulin levels among many other health benefits. But truthfully, I love this dressing for the flavor, health benefits aside!
