The world of salad dressing has been revolutionized now that Lettuce is the New Chicken and is also the main meal…
…so much so that now having studied and eaten the nutrient-rich way for over 20 years, even my own style of eating is experiencing a dramatic change. I now create my own salad dressings, in which I blend whole foods.
Just like pasta is really a transport vehicle for great tomato sauce, the salad can now be viewed as the medium for great dressings. However, while pasta is nutrient poor, salad is nutrient-rich. In the past, salad dressings were offending substances, to be eaten in small quantities. Today when I run out of salad, I literally eat or drink the whole-food dressing because it is not only nutrient-rich, but because it is delicious!
In the past, you would never think to drink the dressing because you would get sick from the oil, salt and unhealthy additives. But today, nutrient-rich dressings are made from whole foods and can be applied to the Switch to Rich iconic salad, vegetables, and/or used as wrap spreads (depending on the thickness) and more. The options are endless; limited only by your creativity.
The dressings I’m talking about, today, are so healthy and tasty that if you were to run out of salad, not only would you drink the dressing, but you’d immediately begin concocting your next dressing the minute you finished. They are really whole-food blends that make vegetables and other nutrient-rich foods much more decadent.
I can’t tell you how much I look forward to salads these days. I like leafy greens, particularly because of how I feel after I eat them- lean, light, and nourished. And, you will too. But, when you dress up a salad with an amazing nutrient-rich dressing, you will be blown away, and look forward to eating the foods that should be the majority of what you eat– greens!
When you embrace this strategy of making the greatest volume of food you eat, greens, and master nutrient-rich salad dressings, you will be well on your way to getting all the benefits of great-tasting nutrient-rich healthy food!

Why would you peel away that fibre-rich skin from the apples? As a kid I was always told the vitamins are concentrated just under the skin of an apples and this peeling was throwing away most of the micro-nutrients
Hi Lawrence. Tthat is just what the recipe called for. I am sure you can do it with skins too. I agree. Just make sure to wash your apples well.
