    Salad dressing?

    Primal Fuel
    Not sure if there are any store bought salad dressings without PUFA's (??). Do you make your own? I don't have my book with me right now, I'm at work. I have salad for lunch and I'm trying to think of something I can dress it with that's Primal and that I can get at Trader Joes (only store in walking distance - no car either).

    Would love some advice. Thanks!

    I always kept reliable olive oil and vinegar in my desk.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Spinach, coconut milk/oil, oregano, cumin, garlic powder, black pepper, basil, pinch of salt(optional) macadamias, balsamic(occasionally I will throw in a couple pieces o Bacon)...blend. I usually make a batch big enough for the week. Also, I keep a big bottle of EVOO/Balsamic,cumin, oregano, basil, garlic powder at work. Haven't used bottled dressing in almost 2 years. I also take a bit with me if I know I'm going to eat at a restaurant...Hope this helps.

    Just get a bottle of good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I even have one of those pepper grinders from TJ's at my desk, so salad dressing is never a problem. It's also probably cheaper in the long run and you don't have to refrigerate it.

    I just made a dressing out of Macadamia nut oil and coconut aminos. Not bad for something just thrown together.

    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    I thought we were supposed to stay away from Olive Oil. Maybe I read the book wrong - I was reading it while watching my youngest kids (2 & 3) play.

    It's just fine, especially a good, extra virgin olive oil.
