Fresh garden salad and homemade lower fat vinaigrette bottle
This is a lower fat version of a classic red wine vinaigrette recipe I like to use.
This time of the year I get to enjoy fresh greens straight out of the garden. Salads are great. They provide you with vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Choosing a salad over other side dishes can also help reduce caloric intake but it doesn't take much to turn a good salad bad.  Adding high fat items like cheese or adding too much dressing increases the calorie density of your average salad tremendously.

Did you know that 2 tablespoons of olive oil have almost as many calories as 3 heads of romaine lettuce?
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil = 3 Heads Lettuce
Olive oil is considered a good fat and some of the vitamins provided in salads are fat soluble but I wanted to try to cut down the calories so I came up with a vinaigrette recipe that is lower in fat.
