Chicken broth in my salad dressing? Are you nuts? While you might think putting chicken broth in your dressing is a little weird, this Low Fat Low Calorie Garlic Basil Vinaigrette is really delicious; the chicken broth adds a “meatiness” to the dressing and keeps the calories down.

Way down.

Only 27 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving!  Remember, you don’t have to use all the dressing, just enough to “kiss” the greens, not drown them.  Use on any salad you want, but it’s particularly good on a hearty salad, with lots of veggies and some grilled or poached chicken breast.  A low-fat, low-cal lunch or dinner.

And unlike many no or low fat dressings you can buy, this one has no added sugar or carbs.

Store any left-over dressing covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.

    What is a serving size. Your recipe does not indicate it. Is it 2 Tablespoons as with most salad dressings. Please advise. Would like to make it for a dinner this weekend. Also, I am assuming one could substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth. Thanks,
    Linda

      Yes, I’m sorry that wasn’t in there, but 2 tablespoons is a serving (although I generally use less than that per, but it’s accurate for the recipe). Vegetable broth would also work, although the flavor may change slightly, and may be for the better. Veggie with veggies. Let me know how it works out. Cheers
