Christine, that recipe was on the fatfree vegan site, I get their wkly emails for recipes and they are usually so good. I copy them all off and try them sooner or later! This one is Spicy-Walnut salad with fat-free balsamic-raisin dressing.
here is a copy and paste of it for you to see!
Fat-Free Balsamic-Raisin Vinaigrette
You can make this dressing sweeter by using apple or white grape juice instead of water. Or add a little spiciness by mixing in a tablespoon of spicy mustard.( Or add creaminess by blending in a teaspoon of tahini or a tablespoon of raw cashews.) I skipped this....
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup golden raisins (see note below)
1 large clove garlic
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice or 1 tablespoon regular lemon juice
2 teaspoons Chia seeds
1 teaspoon mellow white miso or salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process on high speed until liquified. Pour into a storage container and refrigerate until thickened slightly. Stir or shake well before using.
I was cleaning up the kitchen, doing my kitchen yoga stuff, and now here I am sitting on my duff, in virtual land, and I should be exercising, but had to check the journals instead.
So bummed out, my fav pc of Pampered chef stone ware got cracked, and I have used it since 2002. Son wonders if perhaps he used too much watery sauces (his jerk sauce) and that did it. Well who knows? Any body know if that could have done it? But that is that, and I have other for sure. I bought a lot of P chef stones when I was working and everyone had the buying parties.
I am up early and feel great, it must be so true, when you eat all the clean plants and no dead animal parts, your tummy is just so wonderfully efficient that you can rest better. Plus I did a lot of exercising too yesterday. The gym for the machine, I love that true strider one, and did 13 min, on it, then the machines and the pool for 30 minutes. Plus walked the dog at the park, in the fenced in area for dogs and all around it too. Getting so much stronger doing this. she just loves that so much. Incentive right there, since she needs the exercising as much as I do.
got my oats soaking and plan on getting to gym earlier today, since I have 2 appts in town 12 and 2. Still need to exercise!
You all have a great day outta there!
