Low-Fat Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing
Most low-fat creamy salad dressings taste like the plastic they're bottled in. Our full-flavored creamy dressings have about 90 percent less fat than their traditional counterparts.
Why This Recipe Works
Most creamy low-fat dressings taste like the plastic they’re bottled in. For our fresh-tasting alternative, we used reduced-fat mayonnaise and low-fat plain yogurt. The stronger the cheese we selected, the less of it we had to use, so we chose strongly flavored Parmesan in our Low-Fat Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing recipe. Fresh garlic lent our recipe pungency and depth, and lemon juice and Dijon mustard brightened the flavor.
Traditional Parmesan peppercorn dressing has 140 calories, 14 grams of fat, and 2.5 grams of saturated fat per 2-tablespoon serving. Our Low-Fat Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing has 30 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 0.5 grams of saturated fat per 2-tablespoon serving.
