READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by CookinMommy

Great salad dressing from the Fresh Start Cookbook. This dressing is a favorite around our house. Easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Surprisingly good! I thought that I would really miss the oil but I don't. I do want to add that the calories count was divided into 6 servings. I doubt any of us would use 1/6 the recipe on a salad. :) I recalculated. I measured 48 TBSP of dressing in the recipe, so there will be around 6 calories per Tbsp.
