Dr. Weil's Recipe of the Day

Red Pepper Vinagrette
8 Servings
This salad dressing is nothing like your basic vinaigrette formula - but you'll soon want to use it nearly every day. The classic vinaigrette is made with 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. As you can see, this version has no oil in it at all, making it extremely low in calories. But don't worry - it's very high in flavor. Once you've tried this I'm sure it'll become your basic everyday staple for salad. And you can never eat too much salad!
