Since we are closing up our cottage most of the food has been brought back home. I was making a salad this past weekend and discovered I didn’t have any dressing 😦 So, as I was rummaging through the frig and cupboards I found two items, jam and balsamic vinegar. Working on a ratio for the two, I finally created a great low fat dressing. I even put in some red pepper flakes into the dressing to give it a bit of zest. My husband thought I had bought more dressing at the store and wanted to know who made it? Boy was he surprised when I said I did and told him how!
I hope you enjoy creating some fun new dressings with your family with this idea. Enjoy! For comments and questions firstname.lastname@example.org
Dressing For Salad
Whisk together 2 tablespoons of your favorite jam with 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. You can add different spices depending on the jam you use. I make mine with Raspberry Jam and added just a bit of red pepper flakes, letting it sit for just a couple of minutes, letting the flavors combine. The pepper flakes gave it a sweet/spicy flavor – yummmm
