On of the things that I am trying to do to be healthier is eat more salads. The one thing that I have a hard time with is dressings for my salads. I like variety in my dressings but most of the ones I like the most are either too high in fat content or sugars for my liking. The sugar is really the biggest issue for me. Because of this my usual go to is a balsamic vinegar and oil combo that is really pretty plain and boring. I have been bound and determined to spice up my balsamic dressings and one day my manager brought in a cherry based dressing for a pot luck that I loved! There were some added sugar to it but it inspired me to create this dressing. A cherry bacon balsamic vinaigrette! The dressing itself is easy to make and has no added sugars, the only sugar is from the cherries really.
The first time I made this dressing for my family it was a huge hit!! In fact the salad was gone before the pizza for dinner that night. I would have never believed something like that could happen. I hope that the dressing is as successful for you and your family as it was for mine. Be sure to let me know your thoughts.
