I am a fan of making my own dressings at home instead of buying the bottled stuff. Sure, many of the dressings you can buy at the store are great but often they are loaded with calories and sodium. When you make your own version at home, you can control what you put in it and therefore make it much, much healthier!
I was inspired to make this dressing after flipping through my Whole Foods recipe app on my iPhone. I stumbled upon a version that included peaches and thought I'd like to give it a shot, only sub in pears.
As the name denotes, this dressing is oil free and is great for salads topped with berries or other types of fruit. It screams summer to me and although it is sadly only January, we can eat this dressing and pretend like it is warm outside. Deal?
Oil Free Pear and Walnut Dressing
- 1/3 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup chopped pears
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and whirl it around until smooth. That's it!
I inhaled the salad and forgot to take a picture. Oops!
This is so easy and soooo muuuuuuuch betttttttter for you. I hope you decide to give it a shot!
