And trust me, we could have, no, SHOULD have, figured this out for ourselves.
Last night, while applying a heat pack to my back and contemplating writing a post about not overdoing the exercise, a commercial for a new product came on the tube.
SPRITZING SALAD DRESSING! One calorie per spritz. And there it was, salad dressing in a spray bottle, the pump kind!
What a fabulous way to control the amount of dressing on your salad, or a little flavor enhancer on your meat or veggies. And I should have thought of it myself.
So my imagination started running, towards making my own. After all, if it’s only a single calorie per spray, the entire bottle has to be carefully made so that we’re not getting just oil.
What would I put into it? Herbs would be wonderful. Oh, wait, the little green pieces would clog the nozzle. Spritzing caesar! The cheese would provide a wee bit of protein. And clog the nozzle. Bleu cheese? Same problem.
Bottom line, it has to be completely liquid, with no grains or slices or chunks to clog the nozzle. Sounds boring. Hold on, though, it gets worse.
I just checked out the website [this is made by Wishbone, and after this, I’m not inclined to post a link here]. The first ingredient in the Italian vinaigrette is high fructose corn syrup. It’s the third in the other two varieties, after water and vinegar.
Not for me! I’m letting this one pass me by. But, if I can find a spray device that won’t get clogged from bits of herbs, WATCH OUT!
