I truly think that having a delicious salad dressing is what can make or break your salad! No one likes to eat bland and boring food, and what you dress your salad with can make all the difference. Remember healthy does NOT have to equal boring ;) The best thing about some of these healthy salad dressings is that they can be used as dipping sauces as well!
