A tip I picked up the other day from Bethenny Frankel’s tv show…….to reduce the fat of your favorite dressing add vinegar.  I love Ranch……. added a little vinegar……just enough to thin it out.  It taste terrific this is something simple to do to have what I enjoy in a healthier manner.

Enjoy & Until Next Time
