Salad Dressing Recipes

One of my favourite meals to have is a nice BIG salad where I can throw in every veggie and it honestly just tastes so good! The key to enjoying your salads, is to have a delicious salad dressing! When it comes to salad dressings, I prefer low fat varieties not because I fear fat, but because I prefer to eat my fats (including nuts, avocado etc) because I just find it that much more satisfying!
