With the warmer weather and plenty of fresh produce available a fresh summer salad is a healthy, fresh way to stick to your weight loss goals. An easy, tasty salad dressing can be a secret weapon when starting a weight loss diet. You don’t have to leave off the dressing on the 7Company Ideal Protein™ diet and here is a versatile recipe that gets our sign of approval.
Guilt Free Italian Dressing/Marinade – Delicious!
2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup white or apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a bottle (something you can shake). This can be used on salads or on your meat before cooking. This will yield 6-8 cups of salad or a whole head of lettuce. Put the lettuce in a bowl with fresh veggies, pour dressing on, lid the bowl, and shake it. This will coat the lettuce nicely and the rest will go to the bottom of the bowl so you aren’t drowning the salad.
You can even add some fresh herbs to give it more flavor! Try adding dill, basil, oregano, or tarragon, even substitute fresh chives for the shallots. Have fun adding fresh new flavors to your salad dressing!
