Balsamic Salad Dressing

Alice Coate's tomato juice-based dressing offers a nice combination of tangy and tart with only a trace of fat. "We like our salad dressing tart, but you may want to add a little more sugar if that suits you family's tastes better," suggests the Bryan, Texas reader.

    What a great recipe! It's exactly the flavor and lightness I was looking for. The only change I made was to make my own homemade Italian salad dressing mix from another recipe on the internet. I used 2 tbsp of that mix, with the rest of the ingredients. This is now a favorite that I can't imagine being without. I poured it over cooked asparagus for a light veggie snack.

    This tangy Balsamic dressing really packs a punch. It is one of the most flavorful dressing recipes I have ever tasted. Even my picky seven-year-old loved this delicious recipe.
