This looks really good. Definitely going to have to try it!

I don't know if you've seen these, but they showed up in the store a month or so ago - they are easy and delicious:


recipes with 'just a little' (tahini, nuts, etc) starts to take us down that slippery slope of added-fats...yes, if we assiduously measure our salad dressing and condiments, it's not much - but we're not all so inclined. I'd love to see some more dressings and sauces that don't rely on nuts for creaminess...

Debby-since you are not the only person RAVING about this Caeser Chavez dressing on the web, I am going to break down and make it this weekend (double batch of course)! I'm so excited!

Thank you for the continuing inspiration, education and best of all, friendship.

OOPS!! For anyone wanting to try the Caesar Chavez dressing--please re-check my recipe. When I originally posted I forgot the 1 TBS of tahini. The post has now been corrected.

Hi Claire--Of course I agree with you. Nuts & seeds can be a slippery slope--but not for everyone.

Chocolate is my slippery slope--I avoid it completely! I cannot stop eating real chocolate--the kind made with fat.

I'm a very strict "measurer" (if there is such a word)--when it comes to nuts--and tahini is such a rarity in my life. Wish they'd sell them in 4 ounce containers.

I'm pretty schizophrenic with how I feel about these recipes--but they do take food to a more delicious level with just a tiny amount of omega-6 fats.

I'm OK with using them occasionally--but that's not always the case for everyone--especially if they have heart disease.

That said, I have all the ingredients (prunes, lecithin, & citric acid) purchased to try out a no-added fat emulsifier to add to salad dressings, etc. Based on now defunct product called "Wonderslim. I'll report back.

Here's the link to the recipe if anyone wants to try it out:


I know you'll love this stuff. A little goes a long way. Let me know if you prefer the garlic or the shallot version.

And back to you for your inspiration, recipes, & friendship. Your energy is infectious.

I love, love, love the Caeser Chavez dressing from AFR! I haven't tried the mayo yet, though.

Okay Deb...I'm SO happy you tried the Caesar Chavez dressing...I knew you'd love it. Now it's time to get out Isa's book again to try the Green Goddess Garlic Dressing page 26. I used to make Green Goddess Dressing a la Ina Garten which was incredible, but Isa's GG dresing is just as creamy and delish...and it has NO NUTS in it. I used my homegrown parsley and chives and I added 6-7 BASIL leaves (like Ina does). "Green Goodness Dressing" I say! And, yes, I often use garlic and shallot in the dressings and they are wonderful.


I made the Seitan Beer Stew and while it looked and smelled delicious, I found it too sweet and bland. I'll try it again and delete the sugar, use a yellow versus sweet onion, and increase the mustard and vinegar. We did eat all of it though, mostly because it looked so good!
