You may find this dressing a little more sour than commercial Italian dressing because it has a higher percentage of vinegar. So you may want to use a little less. But even if you use the full two tablespoons (28 ml), you are getting a lot of taste for not many calories.


  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons (22 g) Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar substitute, such as Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary


Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well.

To divide this into as many portions as you want to use it:

  1. When you’re done preparing this, measure it with a good kitchen scale.
  2. Note the weight.
  3. If you intend to use it for, let say 10 times, divide its weight by 10 to know the weight of every portion you’ll be taking.

So for this recipe, if we assume the weight is 250g and you have decided to use it with 10 different meals, then you must weigh 25g for every portion.
