Instructions

Here’s an Italian dressing that beats all ”no fat” commercial dressings.

The guar gum is a nutritious thickener and can be found at your favorite natural food shop or you can order from Weimar’s Catalog Sales Department. An easy and flavorful dressing for bean, pasta, tossed green salads

  1. In blender place all ingredients, except guar gum and red pepper, and whiz to mix well.
  2. Add guar gum while blender is running.
  3. Add the red pepper last and pulse briefly.
  4. Refrigerate 1/2 hour to allow the guar gum to thicken the dressing.

NOTE: for Creamy Italian, omit the guar gum and add 1/4 cup soft tofu when blending.
Goes great with Four Bean Salad recipe

    I am curious. Why is guar gum powder added to this recipe?

    Guar gum is a thickener which allows the salad dressing to be more like an oil-based dressing.

    Bon appetit!

    What do you mean by small piece of onion?  Can you be more specific?
    Thanks

    Try a tablespoon-size piece of a sweet onion; if too strong, perhaps a teaspoon. One green onion is about right, too.
