The last thing you want on your fresh organic salad is tired old dressing….. Or, just as bad, some secret flavor packet that you “easily” add oil and vinegar to and shake. And the reason for the “easily” is that this is something that the Conventional Food  People along with Madison Ave. has convinced us of. Let’s do it real and natural and FRESH .. and trust me it will be just as easy as shaking in a bag ‘o stuff. By the way, take another step from the conventional foodies by making sure you use up your dressing the same day you make it. Contrary to what they say Fresh is always Best. Enjoy!
