SALT-FREE CAESAR DRESSING
A Sweet, creamy pine nut dressing for those on salt-free diets!
Makes 1-1/3 cups
2/3 c. plus 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/3 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. plus 2 t. pine (pignoli) nuts
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. black pepper
fresh lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in blender container. Blend on low, then medium-high speed till smooth and creamy. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled
Notes: For a Caesar salad: drizzle over crisped, torn romaine lettuce and croutons. Sprinkle with a few drops of fresh lemon juice and couple twists of the pepper mill. Toss to coat and serve at once.
Purchase dried bread cubes of bread stuffing which are not coated with salt and seasonings to use as croutons. They’re convenient and easy to use.
This dressing also goes well with mixed greens, sliced fresh mushrooms, diced tomato, broccoli buds, sliced cucumber and croutons. Again, sprinkle a little fresh lemon juice over all, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat evenly, then sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
