Low Carb Salad Dressing


Salad dressing in the stores is ridiculously expensive. You can make your own low carb salad dressing for a lot less money, and it will taste better and be better for you.

Feta Vinaigrette Dressing

For this dressing, you could also use a blue or gorgonzola cheese if you don't have any Feta cheese.

  • ¾ cup organic, cold pressed olive oil
  • ⅓ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 oz finely crumbled Feta cheese
  • 4 slices thin bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a blender, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic and feta, and process until mixed well.  Pour into glass bowl. Stir in bacon crumbles. 

Serving suggestions:

  • This dressing is especially good tossed into a spinach, sliced almond, and red onion salad.
  • Drizzle it over sliced tomatoes and avocado.
  • Spoon it over pork chunks which have been sauteed with onions and butter.
  • Mix it with chunks of cucumber and tomatoes for a tasty and quick salad.
