RECIPE - Mary's Divine Dressing

Salad is a key part of my diet. I grew up eating all sorts of tasty, leafy green concoctions (thanks mommy) and have grown to be rather obsessed. When my Thriving Mommy came home with a new dressing recipe from her friend Mary, I nearly died. It was literally everything I could have ever dreamed of. Vegan (which works out great when I am on a reboot), healthy and incredibly tasty. I have been eating it nearly everyday for what feels like forever and have yet to tire of this divine dressing.

After many requests, it is high time I share it with all of you Thrivers so you too can incorporate it into your daily (or weekly) salad parties. With this on hand in your pantry you will look ever so forward to those Mason Jar salads you are dreading this week. Trust.

Depending on how much you want to make, adjust any of the above ingredients. Also, if you want a little more (or less) flavor you can also adjust the garlic/shallots. But as my Thriving Mommy often points out, who wants to save half a shallot?

Start with your 1 qt Mason Jar (the better for shaking) and add equal parts (thirds) of the liquids (oil, vinegar, broth).

 Next slice your shallot and crush your garlic. Preferably in a garlic press...if you've got one.

Dump that flavor in the jar, let it sink and soak. PS, my mouth is watering as I write this...

 Add a squirt of Dijon and a some S&P to taste....


Just like that you will have the most delicious, low calorie dressing that ever was or will be. You will be dreaming of salads filled with rich leafy greens, roasted & chopped vegetables, scoops of whole grain goodness (think quinoa), heck throw on a sprinkle of your favorite cheese and then SHAKE WELL and poooouuuurrr out some of the sweet stuff.

The best part? The last bit of that dressing, when all those pickled shallots make an appearance as the tastiest topping ever!

Hope you love it as much as I do and thank you Mary for bringing this Divine Dressing into my Thriving Life! Also huge thanks to my own Thriving Mommy for always filling my order requests...hers is always better than mine.

Strive to thrive,
