I’m not usually one to buy my own salad dressings or sauces preferring to make them on my own. However, when I was browsing a local Organic store and found the Ozganics brand of dressings and sauces, I made an exception. It is incredibly difficult to hunt down a low-fat, healthy and tasty dressing/sauce that is gluten free and dairy-free- in fact its almost impossible. Ozganics makes simmer sauces, pasta sauces, salad dressings, marinades and table sauces- all containing not a trace of gluten or dairy. They have a super cute website http://www.ozganics.com.au/ as well. Definitely a brand for anyone with food allergies and/or lacking time to make healthy condiments. This steak salad sandwich idea came about whilst I was browsing the latest issue of Super Food Ideas (June 2012 issue) and me and my boyfriend were hungover last Sunday night. Awesome simple dinner idea.
