Oh the classic crossroads – to make our own salad dressing or to purchase one!? As much as we actually enjoy making our own salad dressing, it’s also incredibly convenient having pre-made ones on hand for those busier days when we need to spruce up our greens.
Traditional salad dressings can be some of the most over-processed Frankenfoods out there that many mistakenly purchase in the hopes of being “healthy”. How do you avoid such a horrid mistake? Ensure that the ingredients are simple, natural and recognizable.
Now allow us to introduce RawFoodz salad dressing, a line created by Sher Kopman and Michelle Cass who were looking to provide the masses with raw, vegan, sustainable and natural salad dressings. They blend superfoods and whole, organic raw foods to create yummy and nutrient-dense dressings- sans Franken-ingredients! Here is a way to infuse your superfoods… with even more superfoods. You’re welcome.
RawFoodz salad dressing has 7 different dressings- Purely Poppy, Glorious Greek, French Fusion, Sea-zar, Italian Idol, Japanese Joy and our personal favorite- Ranch Revival. RR has an incredibly light yet distinctively ranchy flavor, which is a great addition to any bowl of greens. This Canadian brand is swiftly taking the American market by storm and can be found at Whole Foods and Mother’s Market locations.
The dressings are about $6.99, which is pretty decently priced for a wholesome, raw product that is certified organic, sans preservatives and comes packaged in a nice glass container.
Here is this product’s description from their website:
“Ranch revival is a creamy dill & garlic alternative to traditional ranch dressing. Unrefined & preservative-free, every ingredient works together to create a perfect balance & an addictive flavour. Filled with superfoods, this delectable style contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, antibacterial properties and essential fatty acids. Can also be used as an incredible substitute for mayonnaise & tartar sauce.”
