VIDEO: How to Make Two Healthy Salad Dressings in 2 Minutes

Our friends over at Unite Fitness share their yummy recipes.

I don’t know if you’ve ever flipped over your store-bought salad dressings to read the ingredient- and nutrition-facts labels, but if you haven’t, let me tell you: most of them aren’t good. Besides the unpronounceable fillers that make them shelf stable, many salad dressings pack a lot of fat and sugar—which means they can turn your perfectly healthy salad into a calorie bomb like that.

In the video below, Juliet Burgh, nutrition director at Unite Fitness, offers two easy-to-make—and easy-on-your-waistline—salad dressings that you can throw together in less than two minutes. Check out her recipes for a peanut-sesame dressing and creamy balsamic Italian. Yum!

Psst! Juliet and her team will be at Be Well Boot Camp tomorrow! Swing by their table in the Marketplace to meet Juliet, then head up to the Weights for Women clinic, where Unite Fitness trainers will show you an easy 15-minute weight routine that’ll tone you up in no time.

    I made a dressing last week with just blueberries, a little olive oil, and a little Riesling. So good!
