Why do we love salad dressing? We’re big proponents of flavor. What better way to prepare a heaping bowl of wholesome whole foods - like fresh greens, nuts, seeds, cheese, and seasonal vegetables - than by lightly drizzling a scrumptious dressing over the whole thing and tossing it till everything is coated to satisfaction?
