Cooking Tip – Low Fat Dressings

To make a low fat dressing instead of using mayo replace it with Greek yogurt.  To cut carbs and fat try a vinaigrette.  A good dressing that will add spice and kick to your salad and vegetables is Chili Lime Vinaigrette.

Follow the directions as follows:

3 tablespoons of FRESH lime juice
1 ½ teaspoons of minced seeded jalapeno chili
1 teaspoon of minced fresh ginger
1 pressed garlic clove
½ teaspoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon oriental sesame oil

Whisk together lime juice, jalapeno chili, ginger, garlic and sugar in a small bowl.  Gradually whisk in olive and sesame oils.  The key word is “gradually”.  If you like add in salt and pepper for taste.  Let stand at room temperature and serve over salad or vegetables.  You can substitute splenda for the sugar. 

The dressing is spicy so be careful when using.  It adds a kick to grilled vegetables.
