  • Pick a Different Dressing.

One thought on “How To Make The Perfect Salad”

  1. I’m wondering if you have low sodium organic meals? I have a heart condition & have to watch the sodium. Much of our food is organic as well. I’ve tried to copy some of the meals I had in the hospital, but I usually find I’m not eating enough calories so I’m tempted to snack, but I am focused with loosing weight & just stick to fruits or veggies. I’ve lost 28# so far!!

    Thanks for your help
