Italian Salad Dressing

One of the most difficult things about having candida is the limitations in salad dressing. Your most natural thought is that salad is a safe option for candida, but if you dig deeper, you'll see that most dressings are full of no-no's like sugar, vinegar and dairy.

But be comforted! Your salads don't have to be plain lettuce. This is a fast and easy Italian style salad dressing with a zippy, vinaigrette-like flavor - without the sneaky ingredients.

The only thing to watch out for in this recipe is to make sure your dried spices are under 6 months old to avoid mold growth!

¼ cup lemon juice
2 tsp. sea salt
2-3 cloves fresh garlic, pressed/minced
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
¾ cup olive oil

Mix lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, oregano and basil. Gradually whisk in olive oil, until emulsified. If spices settle to the bottom, stir before serving.
