I am still chipping away at ridding my kitchen of processed foods.
Slowly, but surely, I'm doing it.
And one of the things I have vowed never to buy in a bottle ever again is,
Salad dressing is really SO VERY EASY to make, friends.
AND you are eliminating a ton of bad-for-you ingredients that are ever-present
in bottled dressings.
So last week I made one of my very favorites!
It's an American classic!
Now listen, I do realize that having mayonnaise as the base isn't exactly healthy.
(Though I hope to make homemade mayo soon, which will help improve it.)
But, compared to commercially made,
this is the best option.
All I did was whisk together:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish (another thing on my list to make myself)
2 tablespoons chopped chives (I used dried)
Juice of half a lemon (freshly squeezed!)
And just like that, I had THE most delicious dressing.
It got K-Man's stamp of approval, which ain't easy, let me tell ya.
I adapted the recipe from this hugely handy booklet I received
through my Food Network magazine subscription.
I hope to try MANY of these recipes and will for sure share with
you the ones I have success with.
If YOU have a family-favorite homemade dressing,
I would so love for you to share!
