A Simple Salad With A SUPER Dressing!

Yesterday was a pretty crazy day!  Actually...this whole week has been crazy!  Because it's been so NUTS I have been eating a lot of produce that I had on hand but haven't been able to replenish it. 

Last night I wanted something quick and easy but comforting and healthy!  I had some mixed greens with veggies on hand and just a little bit of these (vegan) Corn Chip Strips leftover so I decided to have a HUGE Salad...which turned into TWO huge salads but the end of the night!  You can see that I have a lot of color here, but more importantly there is a mysterious dressing in there, isn't there!?  Well, Mystery-No-More!  It's Foods Alive Super Dressing!  Mike's Special!  It's Savory Garlic and Paprika!  Oh My Goodness!  This is WONDERFUL!  At first I thought it was reminiscent of the seasoning on Dorito's Nacho Chips - of course it's been ages since I have had those and I won't be eating them again so it's good to know that this reminds me of that flavoring but on a much healthier level, right?  As you can see here I used it on my salad - after all it IS a Salad Dressing - but I can't wait to use it as flavoring on Kale Chips!!!  It bet it would be great!

Here is the product description straight from the Foods Alive Website:
It begins when our Artisan cold-pressed gold flax oil is united with savory garlic & aromatic paprika to create a mouth-watering sensation that’s similar to french dressing, but with a little kick in the pants!

You will never have to use another unhealthy salad dressing again! This is the perfect drizzle sauce for any dish, salad, veggies, etc... and an easy way to add Omega-3's to your diet! Let your imagination run wild and pour this on any dish you can think of!

When I told my husband I could actually SMELL the Paprika...he told me that "Paprika doesn't smell"...well, when you use quality and organic and FRESH and raw ingredients it DOES!  I am VERY pleased with this product not just because it tastes marvelous and the quality is amazing but because I have tried 'other' Flax Oils before and they are 'fine and dandy' but this really raises the bar, folks!  The other brand I used in the past was between 12 and 15 bucks on the local level.  THIS 'liquid gold' is just $10.99 on their site!  I can't wait to try more of their dressings...more of their products, really!  This is the 3rd product I have tried from Foods Alive and I have LOVED them all thus far!  PLUS...their customer service is top-notch!

I don't usually do so many product reviews with products from the same company but I just have so much to share with you that I want to share it as soon as I can and scream it from the roof tops!  I have another one coming up on Saturday - so come back soon!
