Eating Healthier: Make Your Own Dressing Tool

Eating Healthier: Make Your Own Dressing Tool

In a quest to eat healthier, I have added more salads to my repertoire at home.  You’d be surprised how difficult it can be to make a tasty salad that isn’t loaded down with hidden fat.  The other day someone told me they LOVED this black and bleu salad….. but it had 21 grams of fat & was really a piece of steak & a cup or so of bleu cheese…. atop a layer of green lettuce!

Trying to do better than that, I headed to the store.  I bought my favorite lettuces.  I love radicchio, boston lettuce, and anything purple….Then I headed to the dressing aisle, and looked at only the oil/vinegar based dressings. I was surprised to see so much sugar and salt! Plus – how do I pick?  What if I get bored with the one I take home today?  I don’t have the funds to buy 15 different types & the whole point is to make this entree exciting!

Enter the Pampered Chef Dressing Mixer.  It’s a container that has measurement marks all over it.  You simply pick the one you want to make – fill everything up to the marks  – & MIX!  You can make a small batch so you can do something different the next day! You control what goes in there, and of course, you can get creative with substitutions!
