Remember a couple days ago when we posted about the delicious apple butter-baked tofu that we had for lunch?

Well of course, we didn’t just have a plate full of tofu for lunch!  While that would be tasty, we would really miss our veggies.  Because seriously, what is a meal without veggies?  Boooorrinng!

No, we did not just eat tofu for lunch.  We put that tofu on top of big, veggie-and-fruit-packed salads!  You know how we love our salads!

And where would a salad be without a delicious salad dressing?  Nowhere.  Because c’mon, a dry salad?  Really?  We may be a little outspoken here, but even two veggie-loving crazy runner-girls think that the idea of a dry salad is a little on the bland side.

But salad dressing doesn’t have to be unhealthy.  It can be low sodium and low in trans and saturated fats.

It can also be sweet and tangy and outrageously delicious 🙂

Yup, we’re talkin’ apple-butter balsamic vinaigrette!  Honestly, if you read our post about apple butter tofu and you still haven’t gone out and gotten yourself a jar of apple butter, we strongly urge you to do so.  You won’t regret it!  We could put this stuff on anything and we’re sure it would be delicious!

Which leads us to our next question- is there anything that balsamic vinegar doesn’t pair well with?  Fruit, veggies, meat, bread, the list goes on and on and on…

So if you haven’t had lunch yet and you’re staring at your fridge and scratching your head, we have a simple solution for you.  Grab some apple butter, make a big salad, and dump this dressing all over it.

And come thank us after 🙂
