I thought I’d post this recipe I came up with last week and LOVE LOVE LOVE. The hubby was pretty happy with it too. It’s not as “good” as the store bought stuff, but it takes away the craving. And I needed to change it up from my Dijon dressing I’d been eating for the last 6 weeks.
1 pk Good Seasons (or comparable) Salad Dressing Mix
1 Tblsp minced garlic (I use the kind you buy in a big jar, packed in water)
1 Tblsp dried oregano
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 Tblsp crumbled feta cheese
1/4 tsp xanthan or guar gum to thicken it a little
Mix up with an immersion blender until smooth then let set at least 2 hrs before serving for the flavors to blend well.
No, the feta is not IP, but one batch of dressing made over a dozen salads, so the amount you’re getting is negligible, and you could leave it out. But I like the little zip it gives.
Also, I’d prefer this made with red wine vinegar, but that’s not IP either.
This is a recipe I will make even after I’m off the diet.
