Makeover Spinach Salad Dressing Recipe

Publisher Photo
This makeover recipe is ideal for spinach. It's also a great way to dress up chicken salad or coleslaw. Yet it has less than half the calories and fat of the original dressing and about 40% less carbohydrates.—Cindy Harnish, Wexford, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

"This dressing is pretty good! Sometimes I'm a bit skeptical in regards to low fat salad dressings, but this was very good and smelled delicious!"

MY REVIEW

"Very good. I served this over spinach wiht mushrooms, turkey bacon, and a sliced hard boiled egg. Yummy! I used half the salt and it was still excellent. Might try less sugar or Splenda next time ... and there will be a next time."

"I love this recipe. Sometimes I switch up the oils; instead of using canola I'll use sunflower or grapeseed, just as yummy!"

"This was fantastic! I substituted the sugar for honey and it takes a lot like honey mustard dressing! YUM!"
