Sassy and Shabby

For the love of all things Vintage

NOW that Thanksgiving is over and we have all STUFFED ourselves I decided it was time to get back to eating healthy....I just FEEL better when I do. In reading the Skinny Italian cookbook I became more aware of how many preservatives are in our everyday food. Why do you think it has such a long shelf life?!??! Avoiding those types of products all together just isn't practical for my lifestyle right now BUT I make small efforts to do what I can. For EXAMPLE....making my own italian dressing. The ingredients are shown below and there is no SPECIFIC measurements - it's like old school cooking as it's done to "taste".  

I re-use my coffee mate creamer containers to store the dressing. Maybe a 1/4 cup of olive oil, and a few splashes of red wine vinegar, a dash of salt and pepper, italian seasoning, dash of granulated garlic and a dash of dried parsley...mix and taste - add a lil of this or that according to YOUR taste buds....

Get you favey mixed greens, red onion, tomatoes, croutons and your homemade with some fresh grated parmesan and you have a nice DELISH lil lunch!
