By: Ron Lagerquist

It’s easy to find salad dressings that taste good, but I can tell you from experience, it can be a real challenge to find dressings that both taste good and are healthy. In fact most dressings transform a perfectly good salad into something you would better off not eating at all. The following 7 salad dressings create that perfect balance of taste and health. And the most exciting part is healthy oil can actually help you lose weight. How about that!

1 Tbs. sunflower seeds
8 almonds
1 Tbs. pumpkin seeds

Grind all dry ingredients in coffee grinder. You may have to separate the mix into two batches. Grind raisins or date pieces until soft. Mix all dry ingredients, then add hot water to desired texture. This will thicken in a matter of one to two minutes so don’t be afraid to allow it to be a little runny. Almonds can be replaced with just about any nut. Raw cashews are simply heavenly.
