Once again we’re back to sauces. Who eats a salad without a dressing – unless they put it in a blender? Personally, when I’m eating out, if I don’t like the dressing, I don’t want the salad – no matter how fresh the veggies and/or fruit.
So here we are at the front door to your salad where decisions are made for the purpose of enticing you, then satisfying your innate desire to feed a body good by eating primarily raw. The dressing is the key to open all those doors.
Be my special guest! Indulge!
