For 20 years now, I’ve enjoyed a daily 20-ingredient salad made up of turkey, salmon or tuna, sometimes some nuts like almonds or walnuts, along with tons of veggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cucumbers and artichokes. Although I love my trusty balsamic vinegar and olive oil topping, I’ve also searched far and wide for healthy and tasty salad dressing alternatives. Unfortunately, I’ve run into one of two scenarios. Either the dressings are laden with industrial seed and vegetable oils like canola, sunflower, corn and soy oils—the primary instigators in all manner of chronic disease—or they boast out-of-this-world health and ingredient claims but tasteless, bland “flavor.” I noticed the same dearth exists in condiments like ketchup, mayo and BBQ sauce. Sure, tasty enough options exist, but they all compromise your health and longevity!
So I set to work cooking up primal-inspired salad dressings and condiments full of healthful, natural fats, superfoods, antioxidant-rich, high-ORAC-scoring herbs and spices—with no offensive, synthetic vegetable and seed oils and no artificial colors, flavors or fillers! The first product I set out to reinvent was mayonnaise—the holy grail of healthy fats. The complete lack of acceptable mayonnaise in stores today is appalling. Most options contain canola oil, soybean oil, sugar, HFCS… the list goes on. For Primal Kitchen Mayo, I chose to use one of my favorite superfoods— avocado oil—instead of canola or soybean oil. Combine that with organic, cage-free eggs, organic vinegar and salt, and we’ve got one awesome-tasting mayonnaise! Healthy mayo—who knew?
Now there’s no more sacrificing flavor for health. All Primal Kitchen ingredients are selected according to the strictest standards of taste, natural healthfulness and phytonutrient potency. Primal Kitchen is among life’s little affordable luxuries and created to be used extravagantly, so pour it on generously. The days of “easy on the salad dressing” are officially over! Make every bite a taste sensation.
