I like using salad dressing when eating my salad greens.  Always on the lookout for lower calorie dressing, I will make dressings from scratch and also buy them.  This recipe is lower in calories and was easy to make including the fact that I had all of the ingredients in the kitchen.  I also liked using a green apple as an ingredient in the dressing.  This recipe is a keeper.

Mixing the dressing in a mini food processor.

Dressing stored in a container before being placed in the fridge.

Sesame Peanut Salad Dressing


1 ½ tbsp sodium reduced soy sauce or tamari sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp brown sugar or splenda
½ granny smith apple, cored and chopped
2 tbsp water


Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Makes about one cup of dressing.  Refrigerate in a container.  It should keep for a week in the fridge.
