I find that salads are usually categorized two different ways: as a “diet” food that cause people to turn up their nose and run the other way, or as a necessity and easy way to fit in more leafy greens, fruits and veggies. The group of people who fall into the latter category (wait for it…) have even been known to crave salads.

Whichever group you tend to fall into when you think of salads, there’s one thing that we must be aware of when talking about the health factor of that bowl of leafy greens. The dressing.

This, my friends, is where it can all go downhill from a health perspective. If you find that your lettuce leaves are swimming in dressing when you get to your last few bites, then chances are you poured on way too much of the good stuff.

My secret to keeping your salad dressing pour in check…

There are a few tips that I give to clients who are looking to make salads a healthy part of their day. If you order a salad out, always opt to get the dressing on the side and either pour on the appropriate amount, or if you don’t trust yourself, dip your fork into the dressing, first, then your salad.

However, if you like to make salads at home like I do, opt for using a pour spout for dressings and oils to avoid the accidental over pour. I use these for the olive oil that sits by my stove, as well as homemade dressings.

Which brings me to…

Infinity Jars! I had actually never heard of this company before they reached out to me to try some of their jars, but I was instantly intrigued. These glass jars are made with deep violet glass, making them lightproof and enhancing the ability to preserve freshness.

Not only do these Infinity Jars keep your spices, oils and shelf-stable goods last longer, but they look super sexy, too. Who doesn’t want a super sexy looking kitchen? They also have glass cosmetic bottles if you are into DIY-ing your beauty routine. I clearly haven’t quite gotten there yet…

I chose two different sizes to test out: the 250 ml glass bottle with oil spout (for dressings and vinegars) and the 1-liter glass screw top wide mouth jar (for homemade granola!).

I recently used the glass bottle with oil spout to store my homemade Lemon Basil Vinaigrette, which I’m sharing with you below! It was super simple to use and I love that the spout allows for control over how much dressing is used.

Lemon Basil Vinaigrette




  1. In a food processor or blender, add all of the ingredients and blend until smooth and the garlic and basil are minced. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week!


I made a salad with spinach, strawberries, cannellini beans and pecans that was a delicious base for this vinaigrette! You could also toss it into a warm grain salad which would be delicious.


  • Serving Size: 2-3 Tablespoons
