Smoky Russian Dressing low-fat


Steve likes bottled dressing and sometimes so do I. Wishbone Russian is one of them. To reduce the calories this time, I add a low calorie unsweetened Almondmilk by Blue Diamond (Almond Breeze), a few drops of liquid smoke, a little garlic powder, salt, then whisk till smooth. Perfect! I love the transformation to creamy!

Makes 1-3/4 cups

1 c. bottled Wishbone Russian Dressing

3/4 c. Almond Breeze AlmondMilk – unsweetened 30 calories per 8 oz.

sev. drops liquid smoke to taste

1/2 t. garlic powder

salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in bowl and whisk till evenly dispersed and smooth.

Use over green leaf and cabbage salads or serve with fried rice dishes, heated.

Serve heated or chilled, whatever your preference.

Notes: Wishbone Russian is Steve’s go-to salad dressing for work. To reduce the calories he drizzles the dressing over the salad, then drizzles Balsamic vinegar around the edges of the salad, without mixing the two. He gets the benefit of the full-strength Russian without using as much of it. And, he likes how the Russian dressing mutes the acidity of the Balsamic vinegar, when the two collide on the plate. Perfect again!

Add the amount of almondmilk that suits the thickness you want for the dressing. I prefer mine on the thin side, while still creamy-textured.

To increase the protein content in one of the salads I used with this dressing, I sliced a chilled veggie hot dog and tossed with lettuce, tomato, onion, carrot cabbage and red pepper. Tasted great for lunch!
