Lemon-Rosemary VinagreteLemon-Rosemary VinagreteGreens, fruits, cheese and nuts are the perfect combination for a delicious salad. But even with the right combination of colorful vegetables, what really makes a difference on your greens is a good dressing. The supermarket carries an array of bottled dressings with different attributes, calorie count, organic options, fruit based, and many other characteristics. But the reality is that none of them can compare in taste and calories with this lemon-rosemary based vinaigrette.

Mi madre Hermosa, makes this delicious recipe with lemon, rosemary, olive oil, agave, and a pinch of salt. One cup of this dressing carries about 500 hundred calories leaving each tablespoon at around 30 calories. Generally, the supermarket dressings contain an average of 70-100 calories. For instance, Newman's Own vinaigrette contains 90 calories per serving and 80 of them are from fat. The best thing of this dressing is that the only fat calories are the ones from the olive oil, which is the good fat. This is a must try at home recipe to enjoy with salads, or simply as dipping sauce.
