One of the biggest stumbling blocks I encountered after making the decision to severely reduce the amount of oil I used in cooking and baking was how to make salad dressing. I was completely stumped. Red wine vinaigrette with copious amounts of olive oil had been my go-to dressing. For ideas I turned to Ann Esselstyn’s recipes in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. They filled the gap, but I wasn’t thrilled with them; I needed a whole heck of a lot more flavor. Adding nuts to a basic oil-free dressing created that nice, creamy richness I craved and took the edge off of the tang of vinegar. From there it was just a matter of adding my favorite flavors.
