Using great quality extra virgin olive oil for your dressings gets you a point on the Med Diet Score but is also a fantastic ingredient for your dressings. The great thing about this is that you always have the foundations for a terrific vinaigrette on hand.

Two parts olive oil to 1 part acid (vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice) and some flavoring such as mustard, tomato paste, or sun dried tomatoes whizzed in the blender and you have the perfect makings for a terrific salad.
