    There's no way you can get fat from eating this.

    My suggestion for a quick one...

    Olive Oil
    Balsamic Vinager
    Lemon Juice
    Cavender's Seasoning(they have a low sodium version if you regulate salt)
    and a bit of Honey

    I halve the grape tomatoes and quarter the peeled cucumber slices.

    Dijon Mustard is my friend.

    Its awesome on a baked sweet potato with balsamic vinegar.

    I put a bunch of other stuff of top too(like bell pepper or raw broccoli) to balance out the texture.

    I basically live off this salad and I don't know what cavenders seasoning is. I keep it simple. Sometimes I just use oil and reg vinegar with salt and peppers of course. And no honey on my salad thanks.

    If you become overwhelmed, freeze or can them. Nothing like a garden tomato when you can't get them in the winter. :up:

    Honey in salad dressing just balances out the acidity.

    Kroger is the big supermarket in my neck of the woods, but they have both types. You can also order it, but I'd also check out the spice aisle before you do so. Its magical on grilled chicken..
