Continuing on cooking with less fat, I am thinking it would be good to make a list of oil-free sauces and dressings to add to salads and dishes. This oil-free spicy balsamic vinegar basil dressing recipe is made with garlic chili sauce and only takes 5 minutes to prepare.
The genesis for this oil-free spicy balsamic vinegar basil dressing comes from making a pasta salad.
For certain periods of time I go off gluten, and some other times I reintroduce it. The reintroduction is sometimes voluntary, like today, other times we visit friends which serve us dishes made with it, that’s another source.
For this pasta salad, I used tomatoes, garbanzo beans
