Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is full of 3 of the 12 Top Anti-Inflammatory Foods.

Inflammation has been linked to major diseases such as Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cancerdiabetes, heart disease, and signs of aging.

Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer.  If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily?  Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing.  Do not use it for cooking.  It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage.  Olive oil has so many health benefits I include a little every day when I eat my salad. It is the main ingredient in this Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Salad Dressing.

Lemons’ health benefits are immense.  To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.

As I don’t use sugar for my cooking I often use stevia which is the healthy option.  The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. So all you need in this olive oil lemon juice salad dressing is a few drops. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based.  Liquid forms will be less processed.  Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.

Garlic is full of health benefits.

To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking.  Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form.  If you do not let it sit, allicin is never formed, so it is worth the wait.

Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.

The flaxseed has only been recognized for all the wonderful health benefits in the last few decades even though it has been cultivated for their health benefits for 5000 years!  Learn all about Flaxseed and It’s Many Health Benefits and Uses.

Creamy Tahini Salad Dressing – I love this tahini salad dressing recipe for its simplicity but mostly because it gives me a creamy dressing that is vegan.

 Delicious Raspberry Dressing – Usually, this raspberry salad dressing is called a `vinaigrette’ but it does not have any vinegar in it. Vinegar is not an ingredient I use as it is so acidic and can be hard on the stomach. I use lemon juice which is healthier, alkaline-forming and is a nutrient-rich superfood. So I call it ‘Raspberry Salad Dressing’.

 Delicious Tomato Salad Dressing – This tomato salad dressing is a very light dressing recipe and is excellent for those wanting a low-fat dressing. It is always good to make your own salad dressing so you can use a nutritious oil, not too much salt and no sugar. I have been making my own salad dressing for decades.

 Vegan Yogurt Salad Dressing – This is a simple easy to make vegan yogurt salad dressing to make and always enjoyed whenever I serve it. What is so extra good about this salad dressing is that there is no dairy in it and it is creamy.  This is so helpful for those of us who do not do well with dairy.

 Lemon-Mint Salad Dressing – This a delicious and refreshing mint salad dressing.

Balsamic Salad Dressing –  For a change, I occasionally make this balsamic salad dressing. I still put lemon juice in it as I do not want too much of the acid vinegar which I just use to add flavour. I always get organic balsamic vinegar.

7 thoughts on “Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Salad Dressing”

  1. Why are we putting stevia in the dressing? It tastes awful. If you need the little bit of sweetness is it not better to use a little minimally processed sugar or raw unfiltered unheated honey?

    Thanks!

  2. In my opinion, Stevia does not taste awful, I am lead to believe that it is a natural product from the Stevia plant. Roy Ferguson

  3. Since olive oil solidifies in the fridge, but flax oil needs to be in the fridge; do I store the dressing in the fridge or at room temperature?
    Thanks.?

    1. Store it in the fridge for it to last longer. Yes, the oil will solidify so take the dressing out of the fridge a while before using it. Or you can put the bottle in a container of tap hot water.
