I'm talking about the dressing. NO ONE should EVER put bottled dressing on their salad. Such disrespect to the greens. (For more about greens, check out this post.)

If you want to keep things simple
1. Vinegar. End of story. The top two in my book right now are ume plum and white balsamic. These are gifts from the culinary gods. Rice wine and white wine are also good back-ups. But there's nothing like massaged red and green kale, spritzed with EVOO during the massage, and a couple of shakes of white balsamic with freshly ground black pepper. It's life-changing.
2. Lemon juice. There's nothing like fresh squeezed lemon juice over arugula. There are no words.
If you're feeling a little edgy
Raw, fermented ginger carrots. Too fucking good.
When you want a major treat
You have two options here. Either make a batch of Choosing Raw zucchini dressing or OMGivenchy's lemon tahini dressing. These make me feel like I'm getting away with something naughty. But my salads (and my hips) thank me.
Now, go drink some wine and make a salad.
