You know that list of summer goals you created way back in May? Well, this week I got to check off one goal from that list. I ran 6 miles!
Even though it took me around 1 hour and 20 minutes, I can’t believe I did it! This is the farthest I have ever run in one segment of time. So, in celebration, I am going to share with you one of my favorite salad dressings. I must warn you though that this is the new ranch – you can eat an entire bowl of salad with this dressing poured on it.
Honey Apple Vinegar Salad Dressing
1/2 c apple cider vinegar
1/2 c raw honey
1/2 c + 2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
Combine all of the ingredients and stir. Store in a glass jar in the fridge.
The reason I like this dressing (besides the fact that it tastes amazing) is because every ingredient is healthy. I especially like it because of the apple cider vinegar content.
Last year it finally clicked that instead of throwing away all of the sour apples from one of our apple trees, we could make apple cider vinegar. I still have over a gallon of vinegar, but at the rate, this salad dressing is disappearing, I might be running out of ACV soon 🙂 The best thing about making your own ACV is that it contains the “mother”, the dark clump of strand-like enzymes of protein molecules. Many people believe that the “mother” contains great health benefits. I am a big fan of ACV and here are a few reasons why.
ACV is a product of fermentation. As a result, it contains friendly bacteria and enzymes. Some say it helps with weight loss, others have seen it get rid of their acne problems. ACV also helps lower high blood sugar and improves insulin sensitivity.
I’ve used ACV internally and externally and have seen benefits both times. Anyways, this salad dressing has been a great success in my home and I can now say that salad is a favorite on the dinner table.
What is your favorite salad dressing? Are you a fan of apple cider vinegar?
