Thank you!!! I’ve been using olive oil & vinegar and its been shooting up my fat intake! Definitely trying this recipe.

i’ll be trying that tomorrow! Can’t wait, i’ve been looking for a good zero cal dressing! Thanks girls!

This sounds great to marinate fresh mushrooms in….no added calories to a very low cal snack or salad addition! Thanks so much…….

Oh goodness….this sounds so yummy!!!! I have all of this at home….I’m soooo gonna whip (whip it good per Hannah….LOL) this up tonight. I wonder if my boys will like it!?!?! Thanks Ladies!!!!! : )

omg, this is so delish! i just whipped up a double batch (gotta prep before the kiddos wake up!) and portioned it out in tiny ziploc containers for my lunch salad today and tomorrow! can’t wait for my salad now! i’ve been really in to annie’s light gingerly dressing lately– it’s only 40 cals for 2 tb and has no artificial ingredients, which I love–super delish if you want an asian salad–so good with slaw and edamame with a few sesame seeds…mmm. but i used that one all last week, so it’s going to be nice to change it up a bit. as always, you rock! thanks girls!!

This was delicious on my salad!!!

I took the leftovers and added a tiny pinch of SweetLeaf (to make it more like a sweeter honey mustard type dressing) and heated it up just a little. Drizzled it over a Flatout flatbread spinach and mushroom pizza for a kick with no added calories.

Thanks, ladies!

Thank you ladies. Recipes frustrate me because I really struggle to do much in food prep, but looking at this, it’s nice and simple! Exactly what I pleaded for.

I do have a question though. How does “Dash of garlic powder” translate in conversion to male language? “Approximately one teaspoon of garlic powder”? My first guess was only a very tiny bit like maybe a tenth of a teaspoon, but it sure looked like you put a lot more than that in.

I finally got around to making this salad dressing!! I LOVE it!!!!! So much so that I haven’t even finished eating my salad before I needed to thank you for posting this! THANK YOU!!!! πŸ™‚
