My friends at NESTEA helped to make this post possible.
So many times, the busyness of everyday life keeps us from being able to stop and enjoy the little things. It’s important to stop and just take it all in some times.
The same thing goes for food. Often times I feel like we make things so much more complicated than they should be. Along the same lines I feel like, for me at least, the simple things are often the best. As silly as it sounds, this dressing is the perfect example. It’s simple, easy, and uncomplicated. It only calls for five ingredients and two of those are salt and pepper. I love sweet and tangy vinaigrettes like this all year round, but especially over a fresh summer salad with berries and some crumbled sharp blue cheese.
And because the dressing is so simple and so easy to make, you’ll have more time to spend with your family and to enjoy those “little things” in life that bring us such great joy.
My friends at NESTEA are all about simple and uncomplicated as well. They truly believe that, just like this dressing, fewer ingredients are often better. That’s why their new real-brewed variety of teas are made with just tea, sugar, citric acid, and water. Having tried all the varieties, I can tell you that the new simpler recipes are a vast improvement. We love the fruit-flavored varieties but are true fans of the new real-brewed iced tea. You can try them, too! Snag a free sample by visiting NESTEA.com.
