LIGHT BASIL GREEN GODDESS DRESSING RECIPE

We made the popular basil green goddess dressing lighter by substituting some of the ingredients, and it’s still FRESH and DELICIOUS.

It’s especially good on top of butter lettuce with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and other veggies.

It’s even great on hard-boiled eggs for a delicious, protein-packed snack.

This yummy light basil green goddess dressing is also great as a dip, that’s a healthier alternative to rich ranch dressings.

When the weather warms up, this cool and refreshing dressing hits the spot!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BASIL AND GARLIC

Basil is a great way to enrich your favorite pasta sauce or salad dressing that not only enhances the taste but also is a good source of magnesium.

Magnesium promotes cardiovascular health by prompting muscles and blood vessels to relax, thus improving blood flow and lessening the risk of irregular heart rhythms or a spasming of the heart muscle or a blood vessel.

Garlic, people either love it or hate it, but when it comes to health benefits, many researchers believe that garlic has been highly effective in treating ailments ranging from infections to snake bites to high blood pressure.

Studies show that garlic can reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which can help prevent atherosclerosis and other heart-related disease.

Garlic is also used today by some for the prevention of lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer, rectal cancer, and colon cancer.
