Sweet n' Spicy Oil and Vinegar dressing
This is great to use as a dressing for pasta salad, or, as I used it, for couscous salad. The original recipe called for honey, but since I don't like honey and wanted to save calories, I used an approximately equal amount of Splenda. This is from the "Company's Coming" series of cookbooks. I tried it today over a cucumber, feta cheese, raisin, onion, red pepper and couscous salad, and it was wonderful. Even won raves from the harder to please family member. If you are like me and prefer a stronger vinegar flavour, you can add in more of the above-noted white wine vinegar, or even some balsamic once you have dressed the salad, to taste. According to the Company's Coming cookbook, this was intended to dress approx. 1 cup of couscous, plus 2 cups of cucumber, 1 cup zucchini, and other assorted ingredients. I don't find it to be enough, because I like strong flavour. I doubled the recipe and used it to dress a 1.5 cup (cooked) serving of couscous and the other salad mixings.
