MOM'S SALAD DRESSING
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. vinegar
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. Splenda
1 t. seasalt
Mix altogether. Can add garlic, oregano, hotsauce, etc. to your taste.
Don't know if this is legal or not...but it sure beats WF dressings.
Note: I usually had used canola oil. I find with the olive oil, I have to remember to take it out earlier to liquify - or zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
MY A-1 SAUCE
1/4 c. WF catsup
1/4 c. WF BBQ sauce
I add soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, garlic powder and Splenda to taste.
Also use this as a BBQ sauce for chicken.
