When it comes to a low sodium foods lifestyle, every cook needs some quick easy salad dressing recipes. They are easy to make in small batches. These are some of my favorites:

Sweet & Spicy Salad Dressing

1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tsp horseradish

I really enjoy this dressing. Amazing, you don't really taste the hot horseradish when using honey. A very quick salad dressing to make adding plenty of flavor to salads! I enjoy it on a garden salad.

Balsamic Vinegar Marinade

1 cup balsamic
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp mixed spices such as garlic, basil, oregano, lemon pepper etc.

If your a fan of Italian cuisine like I am, then a balsamic vinegar dressing is a must. I use it a lot with my low sodium foods Balsamic is a dark-brown syrupy vinegar with a smooth sweet-sour flavor, produced in the Modena region of Italy.

Honey Mustard Dressing

1 cup water
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tbs. cornstarch
Cook until thick and then cool.

Then add:

½ tsp paprika
1/3 cup honey
1 tbs. canola oil
Mix well and store in a container and refrigerate..

By making it yourself, this can be a nice healthy recipe.

There you go, three of my favorite quick and easy to make salad dressing. Adds great flavor to a low sodium foods lifestyle.

A low sodium diet is often recommended for those trying to prevent or reduce high blood pressure, diabetics or those with chronic kidney disease. Research also shows that populations with high sodium diets experience higher blood pressure as they age. Low sodium diets also tend to have fewer processed foods and more fruits and vegetables, which carry their own health benefits.

Are you looking for a healthy lifestyle? I use low sodium foods to help fight high blood pressure. I am constantly asked about low sodium foods. So I would like to share with you how to go about using low sodium foods in your new healthy lifestyle...Rick
