Default ATTN: Trader Joe fans; fab low-cal dressing!

I went to TJís last night and they were out of the ff balsamic vinaigrette I usually buy, so I wandered over to the refrigerated dressings and decided the Champagne Pear Vinaigrette with Gorgonzola sounded good, and oh my god I am in love! I even got the boyfriend to gobble down a big heaping pile of spinach with this stuff.

And now the best part: Nutrition Facts
Per 2 tbsp serving:
Cal: 45
Total fat: 2.5
Sat fat: 0.5
Sodium: 200mg
Carb: 4
Sugars: 4
Protein: 1

Low-cal, low sodium, low fat, and so flavorful. Canít ask for more than that. Iíve been eating it on a very simple salad of baby spinach, mandarin orange slices and walnuts. Just divine.

I LOVE their dressings. My favorite is the Parmesan Ranch - its creamy and just a little spicy and really marvelous tasting.

And again, the best part IS the nutrition facts, per 2 tbsp:
30 calories
1.5 g fat
1 g saturated
170mg sodium
2g carb
2g protein
