I was looking for a healthy french style dressing and decided to give this recipe a whirl. But I did decide to cut down the oil to just 1/4 cup and changed the sweetener to Blue Agave necter. But the dressing is very good this way and it will become a staple in my frig

I used tomato paste thinned with water. Had to use, opened by mistake. This is good served over greens or cooked spinach noodles. I added a little more sugar since it was not tomato sauce. Try this dressing over broiled fish as it is broiling the last side. Excellent broiling sauce also.
