A healthy raspberry pretzel salad that's worthy to be called a meal! Contains heart healthy…
My mom always made a lot of food from scratch. She made her own versions of Kraft Dinner, granola bars, and pizza. She always had bottles of pre-bought salad dressing lining the door of the fridge, though.
I figured that meant salad dressing was impossible to make. She knew how to make basically anything from scratch, after all. I’ve been out of my parents’ house for nearly a decade now but it wasn’t until recently that I figured out that it was, in fact, NOT impossible to make my own salad dressings!
It’s actually pretty easy, and so much tastier too! Mind = blown.
What do you regularly purchase at the grocery store that you could probably make at home?

Why It’s A Smart Choice
When you make your own dressings from scratch, you have full control over the ingredients. Most store-bought salad dressings have between 150-200mg of sodium per tablespoon. The Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed has only 75 mg per tablespoon!
