Emeril's Green Onion and Cilantro Dressing
A common myth is that to eat healthy, you have to give up taste. Chef Emeril Lagasse keeps the flavor in this green onion and cilantro dressing.
Combine ingredients and blend until smooth and -- Bam! -- a great salad dressing.
Of course, dieters may have raised eyebrows at the mention of grape seed oil -- a high-calorie oil (120 calories and 15 fat grams per tablespoon). But, on the plus side, it is a low cholesterol, low sodium and low saturated fat oil -- one of the healthy ones, if you will. Additionally, it is an antioxidant supplement and a good source of Vitamin E. So, a little grape seed oil in your dressing, combined with these other fresh, healthy ingredients is a good use of your calories and fat grams.
