TSC’s Best Damn Dressing- Trust Me, I Use It Everyday

So this is a spinoff dressing of one that I whipped up in 2012, remember?

But 2012 is out & it’s time to evolve. So I figured I had to update you guys on my to-go office dressings.

That’s right guys. Not only do I bring Kardashian salad bowls to our office, I also bring mini to-go dressing containers too. Because there’s really nothing worse than a wilted, wet rat looking broccoli salad, you know. Hence the importance of little dressing containers.

Here’s the deal: I make some dressing on Sunday night ( takes 5 seconds ), & then add it to the fridge in 4 to 6 small dressing holders. You can add this dressing to normal salads, taco salads, ground turkey, noodles, zoodles, OR use it as a veggie dip. To be honest, it’s really good with grapes & watermelon too. Sometimes for a snack I’ll throw together chia seeds, fruit, mint, & some of this dressing. You know me, I love contrast. Contrasting tastes good too.

These to-go dressing containers are ideal for this recipe & they’re $4.99. Also these ones I just found & I’m dying for them because they seem very efficient.

Alight, let’s hop right into the recipe. This is a mixture that comes from Michael’s grandma’s homemade dressing & my stepmom, Julie’s dressing recipe. I sort of mixed them together for a fun twist. All of these ingredients are ones you should already have — I mean they’re basic bitches. But when they come together it’s a real mouth party.

The Skinny Confidential’s BEST Damn Dressing

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
6 dashes of Italian red wine vinegar ( I add ten shakes sometimes – I LOVE it! )
1/2 Meyer lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon of spicy brown mustard
2-3 dashes of Italian OR French seasoning ( I AM OBSESSED with this medley )
2-3 dashes of garlic salt ( or REAL garlic — my favorite! )
Pinch of sea salt, to taste

+ Directions: As you know, I use a martini shaker to mix my dressing. But really a literal martini shaker. Mix EVOO, red wine vinegar, half a lemon ( just the juice ), seasoning & garlic salt ( or fresh garlic ) together; shake well. Add mustard after. Shake, shake, shake again. You can use a whisk if you don’t have a martini shaker. Add dressing to to-go dressing holders. If you want it spicer, add chile flakes!

Note: this dressing is particularly insane with arugula, broccoli, orange bell pepper, avocado, Italian parmesan cheese, cucumber, & homemade sourdough croutons ).

TA-DA the perfect mustard vinaigrette! Really so tasty though.

We always have extra leftovers of the spicy brown mustard so we make lemon-y, spicy brown mustard chicken A LOT. It’s delicious, let me know if you want me to share the recipe! Really this dressing is a HUGE favorite. It’s the only dressing I ever eat at home.

In fact, sometimes at restaurants when I’m feeling extra psycho… like every time… I micro-manage the waiter & ask for olive oil, red wine vinegar, & mustard. DIY at restaurants! At least you know what you’re getting, right?

What’s your all-time favorite dressing? Please share! I’m a creature of habit, but maybe I’ll rebel & try some new ones next week.

Happy Thursday! Until tomorrow, lauryn x

Pretty, Glittery Easter Brunch Ideas!!

The Skinny Confidential talks Easter ideas.

Eek! Easter’s tomorrow!

I hope wherever you’re celebrating the sun is shining, the champagne is flowing, & the brunch is delish!

Here’s some of my favorite Easter ideas ( I’ll def be utilizing Peeps tomorrow & serving my sex kitten summer salad ):

1.} Peep cupcakes!! Who the F doesn’t like Peeps? I’m actually not a fan of eating them ( I’m more of a chocolate lover )…but seriously how cute are they?? Use them for decor or cupcake toppings. They’re so peeping cute! x.

2.} Bellinis, bellinis, bellinis! Fresh white peach bellinis are literally perf for Easter brunch. I like to add a little ice & make my own bellini mix.

3.} Pretty decor is mandatory for any hosted brunch. I love taking empty vases & filling them with color pastel candy. So pretty, right?!

4.} Glitter eggs are also another way to sex-up the table. Two years ago I made glitter eggs but used the plastic kind so they’re reusable each year. I’m obsessed!

5.} This sex kitten summer salad is a pretty, lil appetizer for a small group. Plus there’s avocado involved…yum! If you’re looking for something with more veggies, click here for ‘The Best Salad on the Planet.’

6.} A little DIY is always fun for guests. Set out colorful bowls of sprinkles, melted dark chocolate, & low sodium pretzels for guests to make their own chocolate dipped dessert!

Sooo, you guys have anything fun planned for Easter? Spill!

Hiiiiii.

It’s National Cheat on Your Diet Day.

Kidding, kidding.

But they should invent that.

I’m not a big candy lover. Personally I’d rather have buckets of tortilla chips, guac, & spicy salsa any day of the week over sugary-ass candy.

But.

On Halloween it’s like, sort of a crime not to have a few pieces.

I mean, right?

So anyway, here’s some of the candy that’s currently serving at home decor at my casa ( AKA ‘The Kitty Den’ ). And I’m def indulging in some tropical Skittles + sour SweetTarts.

So sue me.

BTW: does anyone have any healthier versions of candy for next year’s trick-o-treaters? I looked at Whole Foods today but didn’t find anything that was individually packaged. If you know of any yummy, healthier candy options, leave the link/name below.

Oh! & obvi don’t forget to enter the gothy Halloween giveaway & test out The Style Kitten’s ‘Skinny Witches’ Brew‘ recipe.

Happy Hallows’ Eve!

Get spooky. xx.Lauryn
