Italian Salad Dressing

A lot of us who used to go to the metabolic clinic have a Facebook support group where we support and encourage each other and share recipes that are specific to the program that was implemented by the clinic.  There is this one lady whom I consider the Queen Of The Kitchen. She comes up with the most fabulous recipes! Everything I have tried of hers has been awe-some (You have to say it in a sing-song voice)! If I lived closer to her I would be at her house learning all of her kitchen secrets…but I am grateful for her recipes because not only are the delicious, they help me to learn what flavors and spices mix with what.  What makes her even more awesome is that she has given me permission to share her delicious recipes with you! YAY! Thank you Soraya Taheri McLaughlin!

When I first started clean eating, I wasn’t allowed any oil and the only vinegar allowed was apple cider vinegar so I didn’t really eat salad too much because I pretty much had to eat it dry. When I finally was able to have oil and other vinegars again, I had to try this recipe! So what did I think? Absolutely THE best Italian dressing I’ve ever had! Plus it’s great for a marinade!
