When it comes to eating food repetitively, I think there are two types of people. Those who are totally fine with it, and those who can’t face the same food too often.
My parents fall into the first category. They both have a habit of finding a food, cuisine, style of cooking, spice, or some other food they enjoy. Then they cook it. And cook it. And cook it again. And so many more times that people like me want to scream at the sight of the repetition.
Personally, I need to vary my food. (I can’t imagine you’re shocked right now.) And while I definitely have old standby foods that I’ll fall back on, I’ll almost never eat the same food day after day after day. And when I do, you know that food is something special.
Which brings us straight to this delicious salad dressing. Special is definitely one of the words I’d use to describe it. Delicious is another. Simple and easy is another. Fresh, bright and healthy are also adjectives that will describe this beautifully.
I made this delicious salad dressing one Sunday, and I had it for lunch every day that week. And then, when I ran out, I made some more. It really is that good.
Make it. You’ll see. Just make sure you have enough, you’ll want to keep eating it.
