Happy Sunday, friends! Doesn't the weekend just seem to pass by in a flash? I feel like it was just Friday about five minutes ago! Even though it seemed to go by quickly, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was a good mix of having plans and relaxing - Friday night I headed out with a few of my friend's to celebrate one of my best galpal's birthdays, Saturday I went over to my sister's house for a bit, and today I just did some laundry and headed back over to my sister and brother-in-law's house to have them help me study for my personal training cert!
Anyways, the main event of this post is to tell you guys about my absolute FAVORITE store bought salad dressing. As I was eating my salad at work this week I realized I hadn't shared this salad dressing with you all and immediately put it on my list for the post this week! Drum roll please ;P
The story of how Tessamae's dressing came about goes something like this...
"As the mother of three athletic boys, Tesse had to figure out a way to get them to eat their veggies while staying healthy. Because serving a dressing full of artificial ingredients was not an option, she created and perfected her own all-natural recipe. When her oldest son, Greg, realized how great it was, he said, “Mom, let’s go into business together and make this for the world!” As Tessemae's All Natural grows its product line around the globe, the commitment to healthy eating and healthy living remains the core of the company's mission."
Pretty crazy, huh? Just a mom that was making salad dressing for her family's dinners and now it's their family's business, and a dang good one, too! So, what do I like about these dressings? First of all, they're all tasty, honestly I haven't had one that I don't like. Second of all, there's NO artificial ingredients or any of the typical junk in other salad dressings you'd buy. For example, her Caesar dressing has the following ingredients:
Organic EEVO, organic lemon juice, organic apple cider vinegar, organic mustard, organic spices, organic coconut aminos, sea salt, organic balsamic vinegar, organic ginger, organic dates, organic onion powder, and organic garlic powder.
I mean, compare those ingredients to a typical Caesar dressing you get off the shelf at the grocery store... you can't beat Tessamae's. The ingredients in Tessamae's dressings are REAL ingredients that we can recognize and pronounce, AND they're DELICIOUS!
My favorite dressings are the Lemon Garlic, Balsamic, and the Caesar! All of Tessamae's dressings are also awesome to use as a marinade for chicken or other meats and fish. So, if you're looking for a healthy salad dressing to spice up your lunch or dinner, grab a bottle of Tessamae's the next time you're at the grocery store! I find mine at Whole Foods, but I'm sure they're in other stores as well.
