If you want a healthy salad dressing here’s a quick one to make, a salsa vinaigrette. The flavors remind me of late summer when tomatoes are plentiful…a nice memory since we are in the throws of winter. Making salad dressing is easy and it allows you to cut out the preservatives and salt that commercially made dressings include. This dressing is thick and can even be used as a sauce on chicken or fish!
I use fresh salsa that is found in the refrigerator case, not the jar variety. I could just eat this type of salsa with a spoon since the tomatoes and peppers are fresh and not cooked. It is like a salad in a container! I’d rather have the salsa and not the chips. You can also use home made salsa dressing. Be sure you pick your favorite level of heat…I like medium for this dressing.
One important note, the recipe calls for cider vinegar and I’ve found that not all vinegar labeled as cider vinegar is made from apple cider. So read the label on the vinegar to make sure it isn’t a white vinegar with apple juice added. An excellent cider, although expensive, is Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. It has an excellent taste.
