How to Make Michele the Trainer’s Fat Free Fusion Balsamic Vinaigrette

Vegetable salad

Love creamy salad dressing?  Are you trying to lose weight? If so I recommend low fat and only recommend good fats from whole foods.  Here is a way to make a delicious rich creamy salad dressing with no fat. If you want quality fats, add some organic avocado or organic olives into your salad!

I created this recipe because I had some excellent organic white mushrooms and organic baby carrots that were begging for an Italian salad dressing but I didn’t want oil.  If you want to indulge, I have an excellent Creamy Italian Salad Dressing recipe that boasts a top quality olive oil, but normally I avoid oils.  This new recipe was perfect.  My salad had the mushrooms, carrots, chopped romaine hearts, Persian cucumbers, and organic green olives, but you can add tomatoes or any other great salad veggie too.
