There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Vanilla Vinaigrette

I got this email from my head hunter site that had Easter recipes in the bulk of the email. I saw this and thought oh that sound good.... I did remove the 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, knowing my family isn't big on pepper...But you can add it if you like.

 1/3 cup olive oil
 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

 Use on a salad with mandarin oranges or strawberry added to a spring lettuce mix. Heck you could use both fruits if you feel adventurous! I love spring mix lettuce. I have to mix it with regular lettuce because that is the way my family likes it.

It is a smooth sweeter dressing that why it works well with the fruit and salad.
