Someone recently asked me what my current obsession is in the kitchen. My answer was “to make my own salsa and dressing”! For years, I bought jarred salsa and salad dressing not knowing that I could actually make it myself. Every time I would buy a new jar, I was always excited to try it, but shocked by all the ingredients that are used in the product. Some of the ingredients I can’t even understand, most of which are added as a preservative. Now that I understand food a bit more, I just make my own salsa and salad dressing. Fresh ingredients and without preservatives!
Don’t get me wrong, if I find a jarred salad dressing that is 100% natural, without any preservatives, I’ll definitely buy it to try!
