    Question "Salad Dressing"


    Hi Everyone!!

    Any of you know of or have a recipe for homemade salad dressing that is healthy.

    I am tired of seeing the Corn syrup solids, sugar, Excessive salt in these so called "fat Free" dressings, if not for the ff Russian/french or honey dijon w/ all the sugar/corn syrup YOU get tons of excessive Sodium in the FF italian dressings.

    I am looking for something that I have control over the salt, which I hope I wont have to use as well as the ingredients to make a healthy Alternative to the store bought kinds.

    I have tried making one from just mustard(spicy) red vineger to make it poruale plus tons of dry seasonings. I know about the Balsamic vinegar, but I am not too much into the vinager stuff.

    I think u can make a dressing using Silken Tofu, I am not sure.

    Your help or input would be highly appreciated!!

    Fondly, Emmy aka Gymcandy(397)!!

    Talking Thanks Everyone!!


    THANKS EVERYONE!!

    BOY, THAT WAS QUICK. i ACTUALLY WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING OUT OF THE LEAGUE OF THE "BALSAMIC" OR ANY KIND OF VINEGAR THING, BUT MAYBE i WILL GIVE IT A NOATHER TRY W/ SOME ADDED EXTRA STUFF LIKE DRY SEASONINGS.

    BUT IF YA 'ALL COME ACROSS SOMTHING OTHER THEN THE VINEGAR STUFF, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

    OH YEAH! YO GUYS HAVE SOME AWSOME SIDE PICS' W/ YOUR REPLY'S. SOME ARE VERY "EEERRRYY" OR SCARY! BUT ARE COOL!!

    HAVE A GREAT WEEK! EMMY AKA GYMCANDY(397).
