I rarely am a fan of salad dressings. The market’s selection normally consists of too much sodium, an overload of hidden sugars or a dominating taste that ruins the salad. Michael’s grandmother, Michiko, passed this recipe along to us, making it nearly impossible not to whip up at least four times a week. Since it’s so light and refreshing, the taste never gets old. No one wants to eat their calories in dressing ( or in a salad, for that matter ); try this super low-calorie concoction- your taste buds & butt will thank you later.
Lowest Calorie Dressing Ever
* Works well for a large salad
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil ( EVOO )
6 dashes of red wine vinegar ( I add ten shakes sometimes- I LOVE it! )
1/2 Meyer lemon juice
2-3 dashes of Italian seasoning
2-3 dashes of garlic salt
Shake up. I use a martini shaker to mix my dressing! Depending on your taste buds, garlic salt and Italian seasoning could be one, two or three dashes. Mix EVOO, red wine vinegar, half a lemon [ just the juice ], seasoning and garlic salt together; shake well. This dressing works well on any type of veggies. Pairs well with a dry red wine.
( Note: for this particular salad I used arugula, broccoli, orange bell pepper, Italian parmesan cheese, & cucumber ).
