A while ago I promised to share my new low-fat salad dressings with you. Here comes the first one, which I call “Whiff-of-Nutmeg.” It’s so easy to make that I use it every time I want a quick salad. All you need are pinto beans or chickpeas, some soy or almond milk, and a few condiments. Pour everything into a blender and – swoosh – you have 1 1/2 delicious cups of dressing.

A delicious, completely guilt-free salad dressing.

Since the dressing is free of oil, cheese, or other high-fat ingredients, you can truly lather your veggies with it. Your taste buds will be pleased – you might even start to crave greens!

Here are two simple salads that I personally like a lot:

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce + 1.5 cups Whiff-of-Nutmeg salad dressing + 1 julienned or shredded pear + 1 thinly sliced fennel (bulb only).
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce + 1.5 cups Whiff-of-Nutmeg salad dressing +1 diced red bell pepper + 1 diced slice of cantaloupe.

Number one is what I had for lunch today. Yep, a whole head of romaine. That was three hours ago, but I’m still full, thanks to the pinto beans.

Happy dressing!

Ingredients
Servings: cups of dressing
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend to a smooth consistency.
Recipe Notes
  1. If using canned beans, rinse them thoroughly to eliminate the excess sodium.
  2. 1 1/2 cups of this dressing is sufficient for one head of lettuce with fixin's.
  3. This dressing has a heavier consistency than a vinaigrette. It therefore works better for kale or sturdy lettuces such as romaine than it does for delicate lettuces like bibb.
  4. Quick combinations:
    • 1 head romaine + 1 diced red bell pepper + 1 diced slice of cantaloupe
    • 1 head romaine + 1 julienned or shredded pear + one thinly sliced fennel (bulb only)
