Fat-Free Blueberry And Roasted Pepper Dressing

FAT-FREE BLUEBERRY AND ROASTED PEPPER DRESSING

Use this over any combination of vegetable/fruit salads. The red roasted pepper and blueberry – vegetable and fruit combo – allow for a wider range of uses. Rich-tasting almost animal-like as bad as that sounds, but as long as humans continue to eat animals, I’ll have no choice but to make mention of it – it tastes like there’s animal in it. I should know – I was an animal-eater a large part of my life. There’s no suffering here though. If God had made animals without nervous systems, they’d be plants. That’s how the world treats these precious creatures – like plants. Not here we don’t.

Makes 6-3/4 cups

Bottled Salad Dressing – cut cost and fat

REDUCED FAT SALAD

This is how I extend the more expensive bottled salad dressings, while reducing the fat on my green salads.

Follow Your Heart makes good vegan Caesar and vegan Bleu Cheese salad dressings. Steve and I both like them.

What I do is drizzle half of one or the other onto my green salad, then add a fat-free creamy dressing – Kraft Fat Free Thousand Island works well here. I reduce cost and fat.

Steve will drizzle Catalina or Russian as the main dressing, then drizzle a little creamy Caesar or Bleu on top of his green salads.

Zing is how I describe the way this savory fruit dressing sings! Although it was designed for green leaf salads, I see no reason why it wouldn’t work with fruit salads. In that instance, you may want to add a little more sweet. It’s up to you – as always! Low fat!

GOLDEN CAESAR SALAD

GOLDEN CAESAR SALAD

Now get ready for something different, okay? We’re going beyond the fat, which means there is a world out there that hasn’t been seen yet – not by me anyway – and judging by all I’ve read, not by anybody else either. So get ready to be wowed. Don’t be looking for the old Caesar here. It’s gone. But when it left, look what opened up!

Serves 2 for me (yes, I ate 2 servings – so good, couldn’t help myself!)
