Lemon Basil Salad 2

It’s tangy.  It’s basil-y.  It’s fresh. It’s interestingly addicting.  This dressing started as an experiment using up some ingredients in the fridge and is now topping my list as a favorite.

Lemon Basil Dressing 2I know that buying dressing makes life easy.  But I guarantee this will take less than five minutes of your time.  That five minutes will have you eating a fresh, real food dressing rather than a store-bought one laden with sugar, oil, preservatives, additives, genetically modified ingredients, and/or artificial sweeteners .  It will help your body GAIN energy rather than deplete it.

Put this one on your list this week and see what you think!
