Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Anything with a mix of fresh lemon and lime make it appear salty...without using salt.... and it's SO refreshing! For those of you worried about the oil.... oil goes a long way so just reduce it. No biggie! Submitted by:

I think it looks great for a marinade or a light finishing sauce. For those who are looking at the comments and not the actual nutrition, it is 68.1 cal per tablespoon, not 98. Oil itself with no additions is about 98. Stop freaking out about the calories please. If it is too much for you skip it. Submitted by:

This is fabulous. Although high in calories, the serving goes a loooonnnggg way. I use this on chicken, steak, and dab it on toasted bread. Submitted by:

I think this sounds DELICIOUS and I can't wait to try it! It's mostly oil, so most of us won't use a whole 2 table spoons in a serving anyway, so I don't see the big deal calorie-wise. But that much garlic and the rest of the herbs sounds like a fantastic blend! Submitted by:

I agree; very pricey calorie-wise for someone like me who needs to lose weight - not gain it. Aout 100 cals. for about 1 Tbsp is too much for me. Maybe Chef Meg could also state what the minimum amount of oil would be to make this sauce still viable; e.g., 2 T oil and 10 T water, vs. 3/4 cups oil. Submitted by:
