Easiest Salad Dressing Ever

Have you all noticed I like things to be super easy in my life?   Here's a great salad dressing that fits that bill.

Let's see if you can guess what it is from these little hints.

  •   It's low in calories  {about 7 per Tbsp}.
  •   All natural.
  •   Can be found in just about any restaurant you go to.
  •   Non oily.
  •   Sweet.
  •   Something you probably ingest on a regular basis.
  •   More than likely, you have it in your home right now.

Have you figured it out?  Any guesses?

Here it is.....
Yep.  Orange Juice.

We're always experimenting with our salad toppings, and this came about by accident.  I'm not a big veggie person anyway.  My idea of a good salad has carrots, cheese, croutons, ranch and ham on the lettuce.  Maybe a couple of broccoli florets to make me feel better.  So, Kevin and I started adding lots of fresh fruit to our salads along with our veggies - still good for you and adds lots of flavor.  Apples, blackberries, strawberries, orange wedges, blueberries.... all kinds of tasty choices.  When we started putting orange pieces among the other fruit, we started squeezing the some of the juice into the bowl, too.  Kevin and I no longer feel the need to put any other dressing on our salads.

This is great while at home, but what about when you're out somewhere?  Most restaurants are going to have OJ even if they don't serve breakfast.  Does the restaurant have a bar?  Then they have orange juice on hand.  Or, just look on the menu or ask your server if you can have a little orange juice on the side instead of salad dressing.  You might get a strange look, but they are always looking to please.

Simple and easy..... just perfect for me!
