5 Amazing Fat Burning Salad Dressing!

Summer just isn’t the same without fresh healthy salads. Healthy Hypothyroidism salads are made with leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables that are excellent for fast lunches and busy days. This dressing has superb taste and is made with much  needed healthy fat:  olive oil is high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and MCT oil will help you kick-start fat loss. Just store it in the fridge up to 1 week and just drizzle over your favorite crunchy lettuce, tomatoes and other seasonal veggies.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings, about ¾ cup)

Suggestions for additional seasoning and substitutions:
  • ½ garlic powder instead of crushed garlic ( organic crushed garlic is healthier)
  • ¼ tsp chili powder or 1-2 tsp freshly chopped chili pepper
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • Other healthy oils instead of olive oil , organic unrefined coconut oil, avocado, macadamia or walnut oils

 

Peel and chop the garlic. Place the mayo, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, finely chopped herbs (I used parsley), olive oil and MCT in a blender, blend until blended.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Next place in a jar with a covered sealed lid.  Store in the fridge for up to a week. Shake well before drizzling over salads.
