Let’s talk salad dressing! If you are a label reader like I am you might notice some strange ingredients on the back of a salad dressing bottle. Things like preservatives and funky oils. Gross and weird and probably not too good for me or anyone else. Making your own is super easy!

Normally I shake all the ingredients together in a little mason jar but for some reason I seem to have lost the lids for the jars I have. Well, not the whole lid, just the round, disky thing the covers the mouth of the jar. I still have the rings, which now are rendered pretty useless. Oh well, no worry. I used the small cup from my NutriBullet and the lid it came with and shook up all the goodness in that. Stores in the fridge. Perfect.

So what have I been up to this summer besides making salad dressing?

For one, I’ve been very social! I wouldn’t describe myself as anti-social or an introvert per se, but I am definitely a homebody and teetotal. Does that mean I drink tea? I never really got that word. Teetotal. Either way, I drink way more tea than booze and I spend most of my free time at home.

But the last three weeks have been super busy with lots of fun visitors! First, my BFF Julie came from Victoria. We had makeovers at Nordstrom’s, a fancy dinner at Ancora then topped the night off with great seats at the Queen + Adam Lambert concert. A day/night to remember for sure. We also saw a dead body! I won’t go into detail but there is never a dull moment in the big city.

It’s been so fun seeing friends and the weather has been absolutely gorgeous. Sunny, warm and bright.

  1. Um a dead body?! I once *thought* I saw a dead body on my way to work (later found out he had been hit by a car, but survived) and I got so shook up I had to take an hour to calm down lol.

    Recipe looks great though! I make a similar one but with lemon juice instead of ACV. The bottled ones just taste gross to me now!

    1. It was pretty shocking, but I have hardened a bit out here. I see so much sadness everyday on the streets of Vancouver. Terrible cases of mental illness, addiction and homelessness. Very different than sweet Burlington that is for sure. The body we saw plunged to his death off of the Granville bridge. Awful. It’s a beautiful city, but there are many, many problems swept under the rug. ๐Ÿ™
      And I second the weird tasting store bought dressings too! I also love the ACV but Joe detests it and calls me out whenever I use it. Lol.

  2. Yes!!! I make this salad dressing often, usually minus the garlic. It’s SO good! and I’ll need to know more about this dead body business….?!! yikes!

    1. Ha! Yikes is right! We had just left a fancy dinner and right around the corner was a crime scene complete with cops, coroners and a dead body under a sheet! Very shocking.
