Here's an idea for dressing from a former poster that had lots of good recipes:
This is a variation on my 321 one dressing that turned amazingly good. 321 Blueberry Dressing
2 cups frozen blueberries, thawed
¾ cup pure maple syrup
½ cup seasoned rice vinegar
¼ cup Dijon mustard
Blend ingredients until smooth. Makes 3 cups or 48 - 1 Tablespoon servings.

Here's an idea for fat free hummus that is very good from a Star McDougaller who still posts frequently:
I've been experimenting w/ hummus. The problem is that garbanzo beans are sort of grainy-textured. So when you blend them up the result isn't creamy (which is why, of course, hummus usually contains tahini and/or added oil, neither of which I will use).
Last night I tried this:
1 can no-salt added garbanzo beans
1 can cannellini beans (it did have salt, as there was not a no-salt option at my store, but I rinsed very well).
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup liquid from garbanzo bean can
Blended that up and VOILA!! It tasted TOTALLY creamy and just like "real" hummus!! And no added fat!
Thought someone else might like to try it. I'm gonna try adding some other stuff to it, too, now that I have the basic creamy recipe.
Note: some people who tried this substuted fresh garlic cloves for the garlic powder. Someone added cumin, and one person added a roasted red pepper (the kind found in water-not oil, of course).
Have fun experimenting!
