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.
