Great low cal dressing: Pineapple Miso Dressing

A friend of mine hates bottled dressings and I can not say I blame him. Further, the low calorie dressings are either too sweet or have a chalky after-taste. I found this recipe in the Hawaii Diet Cookbook, a cookbook I highly recommend.

Note: when you make this dressing, be prepared for two bottles worth. It makes a lot so I usually freeze half the final product.  Also, use a blender because this quantity sometimes overflows in my food processor.


Pineapple juice (unsweetened) - 2 cups
White miso, 1/2 cup
Maui or Vidalia onion - 1 medium, chopped
Ginger - 2 tablespoons, peeled and minced
Soy sauce - 1/4 cup
Balsamic vinegar - 1 tablespoon
White pepper - to taste

28 calories per portion which translates to about 2.6 tablespoons.

Personal note: I add some no salt Cajun seasoning (Emeril's recipe minus salt). A pinch or two.

Place in blender and blend thoroughly, then blend again to avoid any chunks.
