Thing 1's doctor says to eat a high fiber, lean diet, including healthy fats, and as much raw food as possible (fruits, vegetables, herbs...). He also says that there's an important nutrient available in freshly crushed or minced garlic (sorry, I can't remember which one). Since garlic is already an essential ingredient in our cooking, making it into the following dressing has become a pre-mealtime ritual in our home. Sharing this recipe with all of you should lower the number of people that we will offend with our garlic breath (as well as per capita vampire encounters).
Salt- I use iodized sea salt
Pepper- fresh ground
Oil- 3 T. I use cold pressed olive if serving raw. Otherwise, use med.-high heat oil.
Garlic- 1-3 cloves, minced or pureed in dressing.
Herb(s)- I usually use dried oregano, cilantro or fresh basil
*Add 1 T. vinegar or citrus juice to SPEVOOOOGH for salad dressing, a raw vegetable marinade, or just use it "as is" on pasta, rice, baked potato, braised greens, etc.
The dressing recipe can also be increased as long as proportions of oil to vinegar remain at 3 to 1. We like Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar best, but it's also nice with balsamic or champagne vinegar, or lemon or lime juice, depending on what you're serving it with.
Today we're going to make it with Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and then toss it with sliced avocado and baby spinach for the most delicious salad ever.
