The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

“The look of excitement on her face quickly turned to one of disappointment and then horror. For Zeus had packed the box full of all the terrible evils he could think of. Out of the box poured disease and poverty. Out came misery, out came death, out came sadness…”

— Pandora’s Box…or someone reading salad dressing ingredient labels.

It’s almost impossible to find compliant salad dressings in the store. Most are chock full of sugar, dairy, and artificial ingredients. They’re a cocktail of point-destroying enemies — not to mention, they’re not very healthy.

What to do? Dry salads are an abomination and store bought dressings are simply not necessary when salad dressings are so easy to make. It’s simple and easy to create a basic salad dressing and then spice it up to suit your tastes.

The Formula for WLC Compliant Salad Dressings

  1. Gather ingredients for Basic Vinaigrette. Remember different oils and vinegars impart a unique taste.
  2. Decide if you want your dressing to be creamy by adding WLC compliant mayonnaise.
  3. Add seasoning.

It’s as simple as that! Watch the video above for detailed instructions. And never go dry or eat a substandard salad dressing again!
