Fat Free Salad Dressing
This is by far the tastiest salad dressing I’ve ever had – it’s become a speciality in our house – guests always ask for it now!
1 heaped teaspoon of wholegrain mustard
1 tablespoon of fat free tomato based dressing (I use a dollop of hot pepper sauce because I like it spicy. But you do need some kind of tomato based dressing to offset the other flavours. Tomato puree will work if you can’t get fat free tomato based dressing – they seem to be quite rare these days).
2 or 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
A dash of soy sauce
2 or 3 tablespoons of Teriyaki marinade (my favourite is Kikkoman Teriyaki – available in big supermarkets)
A little garlic if liked.
Fresh herbs (optional but chives work well)
(the beauty of this dressing is that you can just use whatever you have handy. The core ingredients are wholegrain mustard, tomato based fat free dressing, balsamic and soy sauce. I tend to see what I’ve got in the cupboard. There is no olive oil and you really don’t need it.
Mix ingredients together well and leave to marinade. It can be kept in the fridge (covered) for a week to ten days. It’s better if you make it the day before you need it.
