Welcome to thoughtful, organic beauty
Hello Joyous is an organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
I wouldn't consider myself a lazy person, but I do like to get things done quickly and efficiently. The less time I spend making something, the more time I have to enjoy it nourishing my body. That being said, although I take great pleasure in creating recipes for my family and you (speaking of which, have you tried my cauliflower tacos? ), I don't want to be a slave to my kitchen.
When I was on a serious turmeric latte kick (like nearly every day in the winter), I came up with the Lazy Lady Latte , which was a huge hit. It tastes incredible on ice , too. This got me thinking about other recipes I could put a "lazy lady" spin on.
As you may know, I eat a salad every single day throughout the entire year. Of course, what I put in my salad changes from winter to summer but having a delicious salad dressing is a year-round must. In this video, I show you how to make my Lazy Lady Salad Dressing, which you'll soon discover, is just as easy as using bottled salad dressing and much healthier too!
Apple cider vinegar is made from fermented apples. Go for the raw, unfiltered kind, and reap the benefits of the "mother," strands of gut-friendly bacteria that give the vinegar a cloudy appearance.
Apple cider vinegar adds good bacteria to your gut, facilitating digestion and aiding vitamin and mineral absorption.
It contains potassium (an electrolyte that helps keep sodium levels in check) and magnesium, which helps boost energy levels and calm nerves.

Here's the full recipe for my Lazy Lady Salad Dressing:
If you want to make a large portion, then just make sure you keep the ratio of 2:1 or 3:1 parts olive oil to 1 part vinegar. It's really just a personal prefernce which you prefer. ACV is pretty strong so 2:1 might be ideal but if you were using another vinegar like balsamic you might want to use more - up to you!
The salad dressing can be stored in a dark cool place like your kitchen cupboard. If you put it in the fridge, the olive oil will solidify so you'll need to let it come up to room temperature before using.
I made a crunchy and delightful salad for two that I tossed with my Lazy Lady Salad Dressing. I topped it with some goat cheddar (basically goat cheese that is hard like cheddar cheese without any cow dairy) – it's oh so good!
