View Full Version : Anybody got a new dressing/sauce to share?
06-04-2011, 01:08 PM
I'm looking for dressings that are not sweet and sauces that can spice up meat, etc. Gosh, everything is so plain and tastes the same. I'm not a real big sweets person and I'm not supposed to have a lot of dairy. I'm willing to use a little though. Anything new?

OK. I found one myself. I was making a roast beef sandwich and was frustrated about how dry it was going to be. I noticed some all natural alfredo sauce in my refrigerator and put that on the bread like mayonnaise and it was delicious! I didn't use much, (mine is more thin than the usual thick alfredo) but it gave it a moist, creamy flavor. I've also used it on a cheese/turkey sandwich. Someone may have thought of this already, but it's really been a great discovery for me. I know, it's fattening, but if you only use a little it's not so bad, and hey, we need a break here with all our limitations. Plus, I've lost 8 pounds since this all started. :) If I think of anything else, I'll share it, and please do the same.

Avocado is also a great base for sauces/creamy. Mix it with a little olive oil, salt, garlic, and pepper (if tolerated) to taste! :-)

Sounds good! Too bad it doesn't keep longer! I love avocado.

I posted some salad dressing recipes you could use those instead of mayo. Alfredo sauce is so easy to make. Just milk or cream,butter,parmesan(can is most tolerated). Heat and cool for use on sandwiches.If you only use a little not so bad.

Not being able to eat "traditional" salad dressing since I was diagnosed has been a huge struggle for me. Recently, I discovered toasted sesame oil and I am in love! I find it so delicious and flavourful. It has a nutty flavour.
I thought I would share this idea with others who are also struggling. I'm sure others will also like toasted sesame oil as a salad dressing.

I puree a tub of cottage cheese and use it as my basic sauce.
Add Italian spices and garlic for a "Ranch Dip/Dressing" (oil/water to thin)
Add your favorites cheese for a "Salad Dressing" (oil/water to thin)
Leave it like it is for "Sour Cream" or "Mayo" substitute
Add Paprika for "Deviled Eggs"
Add Salt & Pepper for "Potato Salad Dressing"
I love this section about sharing recipes. During the holidays and in cold weather is when I have the most difficult time with foods that are off my "IC friendly" list and needs these subsitute recipes. Thank you everyone.
