Who doesn't love a good vinaigrette? Don't get me wrong, I hit the ranch train HARD sometimes but for a super fresh and lighter salad, vinaigrette is the way to go! Think about it, it's thin so it can coat all of the lettuce and toppings without dressing OVERLOAD.

And the best part is, you can throw in whatever seasonal ingredients you want to make it special! For instance, throw some fresh berries in there and call it Very Berry Vinaigrette!

And drizzle it over this Summer Berry Salad for the perfect pairing!

Or call it a salad dressing smoothie, you know, whatever.
