Italian Dressing

Italian dressing

If this Italian Dressing is too thick, reduce the amount of recommended cornstarch the next time that you make it.


2 cups water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt substitute
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 shallots, minced
1/4 red bell pepper, minced
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly minced Italian parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
7 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey


Bring the water to a boil and stir in the cornstarch. Let cool. If the mixture is lumpy, you may want to pass it through a blender.

Mix the remaining ingredients together, then add to the water and cornstarch mixture. Mix well and keep refrigerated.
