How about a low-calorie salad dressing that's also antioxidant rich? Here you go!

  I don't know about you, but I'm a pretty big fan of salad. It's fun to dress greens up with yummy salad dressings, but I don't love how some are pretty high in calories, fat, sodium, and sugar.

 

So I decided to create this salad dressing that takes just minutes and uses ingredients you probably already have in the house.

All you need is grape juice, honey, extra-virgin olive oil, and red wine vinegar. I like this salad dressing not only because it's yummy but because it supplies antioxidants called polyphenols from the grape juice, as well as healthy fats from the olive oil.

 

You get sweetness from the honey without too much added sugar, and each two-Tablespoon serving is only 45 calories. It goes great with pretty much any salad combination! So add it to your favorite salad, or you can swap it out with the dressing in my Citrus Quinoa Salad with Prunes or my Sweet Cranberry & Apple Lentils.
