Recipe from Dr. Weil's Recipe of the Day

8 Servings

The classic vinaigrette is made with 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. As you can see, this version has no oil in it at all, making it extremely low in calories. But don't worry — it's very high in flavor. Once you've tried this I'm sure it'll become your basic everyday staple for salad. And you can never eat too much salad!

1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried whole oregano
Pinches of rosemary and thyme
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 of a roasted red bell pepper

Combine all ingredients in a blender container. Blend to mix thoroughly.

This looks so delicious! I can't wait to try it. I put dressing on pasta a lot for an easy meal, this would be great I'm sure. 8 calories is all! You could eat salad all day long with this dressing on it and barely register any calories. Unless of course you are putting croutons and cheese and meat on your salads. I was referring to vegetable salad of course!
