A great alternative salad dressing when following the WW plan.......or not. Yield is approximate. Original recipes specifies 1 1/2 'packets' Splenda but the Zaar computer didn't recognize the word 'packets' which I believe are 1 teaspoon each.

Don't let the name fool you....there is nothing BASIC about this salad dressing. It is the most flavorful dressing I have come across without all the garbage additives and preservatives added to it...and the best part, is that I only use a heaping tablespoon of dressing for 2 people!! The garlic is a MUST! I must admit, I only use a pinch of sugar, but even that isn't really needed. I serve this dressing with Baby Romaine, mango, dried blueberries or cranberries and a little bit of goat cheese. I have never come across a salad dressing where I would want to make the full recipe (I usually cut it in half or quarters) because we get bored of it quickly. Not this is really yummy!!

This was delicious!! I added some beau monde seasoning and used minced garlic and basil too. I will be making this more often :) Great on a basic salad of lettuce, tomato, cumcumber and onion. YUM!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
