It is happening everywhere.  There is a real grassroots movement sweeping the nation and it is all about buying produce that is locally grown using organic methods.  While these products can be more expensive than store bought groceries the health and taste benefits are enormous and you are supporting local farmers.

Today we are all looking for healthy alternatives to processed foods.  This salad dressing recipe not only offers  you a low fat content but it will amaze your friends and family with it’s vibrant flavor that works well with so many combinations of vegetables.  Enjoy!

How to Prepare a  Heart Healthy and Delicious Salad Dressing


  1. Two large cloves of garlic
  2. One teaspoon of sea salt
  3. One 6 oz package of crumbled Feta cheese (you may substitute local goat cheese)
  4. One lime
  5. 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  6. 1 teaspoon of Pickapeppa brand sauce (in the steak sauce section of your store)
  7. 1 teaspoon of yellow mustard
  8. Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Using a large salad bowl, add  garlic and salt and mash to a paste.
  • Next add the strained juice of one lime, feta cheese, olive oil and  using a fork,  mash the ingredients to a soupy consistency.
  • Nest add Picapeppa sauce, mustard, pepper and incorporate.

You now have the  dressing foundation for any number of salad  variations.  You are only limited by your creativity and available produce.  Whenever possible purchase your vegetables from local farmers to ensure the best possible flavor.

I like to use Romaine lettuce because it stands up to the intense flavors and add quartered artichokes, black olives, avocados, and  a few banana peppers.  Make your own croutons using Pita bread cut into triangles, top with Italian herbs, a little olive oil and bake till crunchy, top off your salad with a handful of toasted pine nuts and you will impress even the most finicky appetite.
