What’s Cooking?! Low-sodium, low-fat salad dressing


I love a good salad, and no dinner is easier than throwing leftovers on a bed of greens and chopping up whatever spare vegetables you have in the fridge. It sounds healthy, too; but, be careful because pre-made dressings and dressing packets where you add your own oil and vinegar can be loaded with sugar and salt! Check out this quick and easy balsamic vinaigrette recipe I found from Joy Bauer with ingredients you likely have stocked in your kitchen.

Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3 Tbl olive oil
1/4 cup water
1 tbl spicy brown mustard
1 tsp honey
1 tsp garlic powder

whisk all ingredients and serve! It doesn’t get much easier than that.

We had leftover salmon from our Labor Day BBQ tossed with spinach, strawberries, red onion, carrots, celery, cucumber, and reduced-fat feta cheese. What’s your favorite leftover salad?
