Easy Summer Citrus Dressing
Making your own salad dressing is actually very easy and much healthier because it eliminates many of the preservatives found in store bought dressing! This is one of my favorites! Citrus fruits have so many great benefits! They are loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants to help you fight chronic inflammation and chronic disease.
We know that eating more whole foods, especially vegetables can work wonders for your health. Each color of vegetable has different nutrients, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that boost your immune system and help your body work in the best ways it can! Eating the rainbow every day can help you achieve optimal health!
Summer is a great time to increase the amount of vegetables you are eating and salads are a great option. This dressing works really well with any kind of salad green, and especially with spinach and arugula! You can also try adding some toasted almonds, some fruit, and some feta cheese to your salad. It is light and fruity and will give flare to any summertime salad!
