J’s No Guilt Low Carb-Low Fat Salad Dressing

As Sunday evenings are a “clean the frig” night, I decided to make myself a salad, using up the left overs in the frig.  Sound familiar?  As a result I came up with this recipe for my salad dressing.


1/2 cup water

1/4 cup lemon juice

1-1 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard

2-3 Tablespoons of Splenda (or your favorite sweetener)

1/2 rounded tsp of Guar Gum (to thicken)

Whisk all the ingredients together and place in refrigerator for about an hour.  Test for thickness.  If necessary, you can a a pinch more of the Guar gum.  Whisk it in, and return the dressing to the frig.  Don’t be upset if you get a bit to much, you can easily whisk in a few drops of water.

The options- cut back on the sweetener then add garlic, or sun dried tomatoes, bits of pepper, etc.  Have fun experimenting on your on version.

Remember- everything I make is just a place to  “start.”

Enjoy!  J
