Adding color to your salads is so important.
For substance, I add some cooked quinoa, and for my dressing I make a basic 3/2/1 dressing I learned from the Esselstyn family:
- 3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp of maple syrup
Alternatively, you can roast a red bell pepper and mix it in with a blender. Vinegar is an excellent preservative, so that will make an out of this world dressing, which will keep in the fridge for a few days. The trick is to always make certain things ahead, so you can keep the ball rolling with minimal effort.
