Honey Cumin Banana Vinaigrette

READY IN: 1hr 2mins
Recipe by echo echo

This is from the Dean Ornish diet for preventing or treating heart disease. It is fat free: the banana imitates the texture and viscosity of oil. Serve over salad greens or over cold steamed vegetables. Cooking time is actually chilling time.

though this recipe really intrigued me, i really had no idea what to expect. the result was a smoky spicy cumin dressing with a slightly sweet undertone more from the honey than the banana. as a big fan of the spice, this worked quite well for me. the banana really lends more texture and body to the flavor. my dressing did separate in the fridge (fortunately i left it in the mini chopper bowl) so i had to give it a quick pulse before serving. love the concept and will begin to play with other ideas for creamy fat free dressings. thanks echo.
