Let’s be real here for a moment, who doesn’t love sauce and dressings? Well, I guess I could name a few people in my life, but when it comes to myself, the more sauce and creaminess, the better. The only problem with sauces, is that they’re often loaded with a ton of ingredients that are unnecessary or not good for you. A lot of salad dressings have dairy, wheat (to thicken), and/or pasteurized egg. When I’m eating out I always make sure to ask the server, “Are any of your dressings dairy, wheat, or egg free?” I know it seems like a lot, but it’s not. It’s actually a lot what they’ve put it in there, you know??! Let’s keep it simple and whole people!! Also, if your scared your server is going to be irritated, honestly, that’s their problem, not your emotion to own. If anything, you’re doing them a favor, because if they don’t know the answer to the question, now they can go find out and know for the next person. Because, most likely, someone will ask sooner than later anyways. You must fuel and feed your vessel correctly and well, don’t apologize for that.
Ok, SO, every time I see “Goddess” dressing on a menu or in the store, I get sooooo excited. It’s always so flavorful and has such a unique taste. I love having it a little thicker and chunkier, but a smooth and creamy sauce is also really nice, so whatever your heart desires, create it…
DISCLAIMER: You do not have to be just a goddess to make this. By all means though, all my cooking goddess’, get on with it!!
