Dressings, Healthy, spicy

Spanish Version

Many times my friends get frustrated with a reduced calorie diet and that makes them fail on trying, others on the contra ire think that buying industrially processed salad dressings bring flavor to their salad without realizing the quantity and quality of the fat and other ingredients not so good for your body.

This is why this week im going to dedicate it to publish some salad dressings, easy to make  and with an ideal caloric content to put up some flavors to the salads without exceeding daily limits allowed on a reduce calories diet.

We have done traditional mayonnaise, now let’s spice thing up, and what better way to do it than with ginger. Ginger oil brings great aid in heath as  digestive,  antiseptic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, stimulating and even aphrodisiac properties. It can be found in asian markets or in the asian section at your local grocery store.
