Pucker Up

With the bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables, dinner, every night is a huge salad.  It is big, and all mine, made from a variety of leafy greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, and more!  I haven't bought bottled dressings in more than three years.  You can save a bundle of money (and calories, fat, and salt) by making your own, especially when a fat-free dressing is your choice.

You may have a traditional citrus fruit "juicer," but these metal squeezers pictured are the B-E-S-T!  The juice comes out in mini-torrents!  Make sure the one you buy is metal, as I recently used a plastic one, and it snapped in mid-use.  These cost about $8.00.

Limes are my go-to dressing.  Great source of vitamin C, and packed with loads of properties (check out this website for more details [http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/fruit/health-benefits-of-lime.html)].  I prefer them more than lemons.  And, everynight, here's the dressing I make for my nice, big salad.

-Juice of two limes
-One half cubed avocado
-Garlic powder, to taste
-One half finely minced shallot

Put it in a jar, and shake until the avocado looks like it is mashed.  Pour over salad.

Traveling?  Going out for lunch?  Just throw a lime in your purse, and you are good to go.

Happy Tuesday!  And, don't be a sour puss!
