Keep it simple, stupid

It's really easy to think that you need to spend way too long making your own Paleo condiments, like salad dressing.

BUT that's a bad idea because why take a ton of time when you can take not a ton of time? ;)

It's the K.I.S.S. principle best-displayed: Keep It Simple, Stupid.

Fat + flavor = salad dressing.

That's it.

Obviously, use high-quality fat and not something crappy like canola oil.  But you get the idea.

So... this recipe is my go-to dressing hack.  A couple ingredients in like 2 minutes and you've got a delicious, clean dressing that's easy to transport in a mini piece of Tupperware.

It's so simple I just pour it into my mini Tupperware container each morning as I'm throwing together my perfect salad... and if I haven't had my coffee yet, you know it's easy!
