Sauces Dips and Dressings

Several weeks ago I had a salad for lunch at a new restaurant that opened up in my town. Ever since then I have been trying to recreate their salad dressing.

Well, not exactly. Theirs was so good that it couldn’t possibly be good for me. It is not something that I would dump on a “healthy” salad every day.

My goal was to come up with something very tasty with many of the same flavors as the original dressing that was also low-ish calorie. I finally came up with a winning combination!

Since Chris is just as happy eating frozen dinners as my “real food” was working late I decided to have a big salad for dinner topped with this dressing.
