I had dinner at my friend’s the other night and she served one of the best salads I’ve ever sampled in my entire life. It was almost a sin for a salad to taste that good! Of course, I couldn’t help but ask her what made it exquisitely different from other salads. It took a lot of cajoling and urging to get it out of her, because apparently, she was ashamed to reveal her secret, tastebuds-smattering, ingredient — a bottled dressing called Garlic Expressions!
Delicious doesn’t even begin to describe the bottled dressing which is a product of fresh garlic laced with dried ones. And how amazing it is that the oil and calorie content is on the low side. Talk about healthy and nutritious! But that wasn’t all, she also had another secret cheat that gave the salad its top tier taste and flavor which was an assortment of ready-made toasted nuts known as Sheffa Salad Sprinkles.
The sprinkles is a tasty potpourri of toasted onions, roasted soybeans, seeds and nuts. It is jampacked with healthy nutrients and delivers a generous dose of vegetarian protein. It gives your salad much-needed extra crunch and flavor without adding numbers to your weight. You can find these one-of-a-kind sprinkles at some specialty markets.
And guess what? someone did the honors of replicating the dressing and shared the recipe! So if you can’t find the bottled dressing or simply prefer to make your own from scratch, this recipe has got you covered. And FYI, we have tons of other sumptuous salad recipes you can try, do check them out on our blog! Now here goes the recipe of the hour:
