Trying to eat healthier around here has been a major pain in the ass. We were very used to eating things that were unhealthy, but lets be real- tasted amazing. We have found that the best way to keep up our diet changes has been to make healthier things that also taste amazing. We simply could not sacrifice flavor and stay happy.

Throughout this whole process, we have found that it is possible for eating healthy to be easy, cheap and taste phenomenal!

Which brings us to this recipe.

This recipe is loaded with veggies, uses a homemade spice mix so you know your food isn’t laced with some mystery bullshit, and is made with fresh, low calorie ingredients. It can be easily adapted to be vegan, gluten free or you can add meat and cheese if you prefer. This is a super easy, very versatile recipe.

This dressing was creamy, delicious, and tasted similar to sour cream and onion chips. As I said in my last post with the recipe for this spice mix, I think it would work as a great dip, and some minor tweaks (like adding peppercorn) could make it take on new flavors. Whether on its own or used as a base, this spice blend is AWESOME.

    I love me a creamy pasta salad! My husband hates the texture of anything creamy, so I’ve had to settle for vinaigrette-based pasta salads, but I should just treat myself and make a solo portion of this good stuff. And by solo portion I mean this entire thing, but just for me πŸ˜€
