More than just a condiment, this spicy herb is among the world’s favorites for flavor and health.
This creamy concoction contains less fat than most bottled and homemade salad dressings. The secret? Chicken or vegetable broth thickened with arrowroot, flavored with herbs and spices. Try this tangy dressing over tossed green salads or main-course salads that include fish, poultry, red meat, tofu or beans.
Note: Apple fiber powder adds extra thickness to this recipe. Look for it in natural foods stores or order it from Now Foods at www.NowFoods.com.
Lowfat variation: To reduce fat from 6 to 4 grams per serving, reduce oil to 1/3 cup.
