The refreshing subtle tangy taste from the rose hips is the needed addition for many salads. Store-bought salad dressing is not fresh and contains many hard to pronounce preservatives. Making salad dressing for an individual daily salad might seem like a task, but with powdered superfoods, you can make a variety of dressings quickly if you use olive oil as your base and just add the superfood powders to mix and match flavors. One way to save some time is to buy some mason jars and make two or three different varieties at the same time and keep them in the fridge for use throughout the week.
Rose hips contain the vitamin C and its power surpasses any citrus fruit up to 30 times. Only 100 grams of rose hips have 1250 milligrams of the vitamin C, which is a lot more than any orange can have.
