Healthy, Easy and Yummy in One Recipe?!

by | Sep 30, 2019 | All | 0 comments

With the New Years resolutions that most I know make, most of us are trying to eat healthier and none of us have time to make the recipes we want to make. Also, let’s face it, our husbands and kids don’t like some of those recipes that we try that have all of those healthy items in it! 

I thought I would do a quick post of my favourite salad dressing recipe that is a fan favourite in our house! 

I thought I would share with you my home made salad dressing and some different ways to use it in a salad so it’s not so boring. It is SO good!


Here’s what you will need:

  • Equal part oil and balsamic vinegar (approximately 1/4 cup total)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic 

That’s it! Mix those ingredients together and there you have one delicious and easy salad dressing! I usually use mixed greens salad with this dressing.

Here’s how I use it in salads, I usually take one item from each header:


  • Chicken
  • Beef (usually I use beef tenderloin) 


  • peppers
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • spinach added into my greens 


  • Cashews
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Walnuts


  • Craisins
  • Apples
  • Dried Cherries
  • Dried Apples 
  • Apple chunks
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries


  • Old Cheddar
  • Havarti
  • Blue Cheese
  • Goat’s Cheese with Cranberries

The other thing I sometimes add is the onion strips or the tortilla strips. SO good!
