This fat free dressing came about when my nephew fell in love with the sweet onion dressing used by Subway on their Chicken Teriyaki sandwich. I found a base recipe on the Internet and then used the base to create what my nephew swears is the 'real deal'.
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can roma tomatoes, Chopped
- 1 large sweet onion, Finely minced
- 1 jarred fire roasted red pepper, chopped
- 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons herb-flavored vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon poppy seed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dill weed
- 1⁄2 tablespoon light brown sugar
- Sauté Onion with spices in a small amount of olive oil spray until tender.
- Put tomatoes, red pepper, and onion mixture in blender, add vinegar and brown sugar. Blend on low speed.
- Store in a clean dressing bottle in the fridge.
Great! Reviewed as written and love it. I can see how additional salt would be bad but I loved it! Made as written and tastey! Thanks!
I was very disappointed, I followed the recipe exactly as it appears and the end product did not taste anything like the Subway Sweet Onion dressing. I don't know that the tomatoes brought the right flavor to the dressing, perhaps I could try again without those.
A very interesting and extremely tasty dressing! And, of course the bonus being that it is fat free. I made this EXACTLY as posted and it turned out very well. We all loved it. This makes a VERY thick dressing, so is not really suitable for delicate salad leaves - we used it on a country style mixed salad, but I will use it on sandwiches next time I think! I will cut back on the salt next time too, as the soy sauce was salty enough. I used basil flavoured vinegar. This is a keeper for me, with a few tweaks here and there for personal taste! Made for PAC Spring 2008 - thanks for such a wonderful recipe Brandess! FT:-)
