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'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté Onion with spices in a small amount of olive oil spray until tender.
  2. Put tomatoes, red pepper, and onion mixture in blender, add vinegar and brown sugar. Blend on low speed.
  3. 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:-)
