Salad Dressings

Ok we all can buy bottled ready made  salad dressings at the supermarket, but I can assure you that not only making your own is better for you (less sugar and nasties) but also incredibly cheap and easy. Just give it a go, all you need is s small empty jar and a bottle of Matakana Extra virgin Olive Oil. Just add a drizzle of extra olive Oil over your salad at the end for that yummy shiny look.
