Diane’s Creamy Tahini/Herb Salad Dressing

I must admit that salad dressing is my big “frustration” with this program. I have come up with one salad dressing that I really do like … it’s “creamy” and just “rich” enough to satisfy, plus it’s a welcome change from vinegar.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

I’ve discovered that I really like raspberry dressing, but most of the fatfree ones in the grocery store have too much sugar. I found this recipe and have been experimenting with cutting down on the calories by decreasing the apple juice concentrate.

Gingery Vinaigrette

This is my lower-fat, vegan version of Annie’s Gingerly Vinaigrette (which contains honey). I’ve used ground flax seeds to thicken it–as well as add essential Omega 3’s.

    • Vegan Elote or Mexican-Inspired Corn on the Cob with Hemp-Lime Sauce
