The "Nutrition Facts" did not include the carb count for balsamic vinegar. It's 3 carbs per 1 Tbs. 1 Tbs of Vinegarette doesn't go very far and 6+ carbs are just too many for me to waste on salad, lol. If you used a seasoned rice vinegar it would cut the carbs in half at 1.5 per Tbs. The best choice is an organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar available at a health food store. It has 0 carbs and is really good for you!
Balsamic is my favorite because it gives me that sweet tang I miss from dressings that aren't low carb. Just be careful if you are counting carbs as one tablespoon usually isn't enough and 2 tablespoons is 6-7 carbs which is a huge chunk of your carbs in the beginning phase. Hold this recipe for when you can consume at least 30 so you have some wiggle room.
