One of the most popular and most delicious ways to make a healthy salad dressing is to go with mustard as an ingredient. Use plain mustard, not honey mustard which has excess sugar, and stick with yellow or stone-ground instead. Many organic brands also come in delicious flavors and are made with apple cider vinegar instead of distilled for even more benefits.
This dressing is low in sugar per serving, fat-free, and apple cider vinegar promotes healthy blood sugar and detoxification while black pepper and mustard boost metabolism and also provide high amounts of antioxidants.
Combine 1/3 cup your choice yellow or stone-ground mustard with 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar,
1/2 teaspoon your choice sweetener (such as agave, liquid stevia, coconut syrup, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup, I use coconut nectar),
1 teaspoon black pepper or 1 to 2 drops of *Black Pepper Essential Oil
2 tablespoons water
*Always use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) Essential Oil intended for dietary use
Blend in a small blender and drizzle onto your salad.
