Who doesn’t love a good ole fashion salad. I have been eating a lot of it lately….practically all summer long. What makes a good salad though is not what you put in it but what you put on top. I love my dressings and I think that making your own is the way to go especially if you are trying to eat healthy. Now I buy store brands but these days I try to make sure I am buying ones that don’t have a lot of fat in them or the ones that are a bit lighter. I am a huge fan of Thousand Island but it’s not a huge fan of me and my weight. I have been wanting to try some of the different Vinaigrettes out there to see which ones I will like the best. I love the apple one from chick fil A as I use that one with my salads all the time. Until Chick Fil A comes out with their own bottle I say we try our own……….
