Sexy Almond Balsamic Salad Dressing

dressing

I’m on a quest to eat healthy and that often (at least for me) means that I may lose flavor or richness in my meals and dishes.  So I’m looking for ways to maximize flavor while minimizing calories.  I was watching Dr. Oz and he had a wonderful guest, Dr.  Fuhrman on the show.  While I don’t have Dr. Fuhrman’s recipe for Almond Balsamic recipe I decided to try to make one of my own based on his creation.  Not sure how it compares, but I do know it is super yummy and only 18 calories a tablespoon.  Rich and creamy and fabulous on fresh salad greens.  I used my Vitamix as I wanted it super creamy. Thanks Dr. Furhman for the inspiration.
