Nancy’s Skinny Curry Dressing




Curry powder is a blend of many spices as unique as the person blending them. Most commercial curry powder contains a blend of cayenne, cinnamon, coriander, cloves, cumin, mustard, pepper and turmeric. The distinct yellow color of curry powder comes from the turmeric. I’ve added this fabulous spice to my skinny ranch dressing for an exquisitely exotic touch. Delicious to serve on a salad, a dip for veggies and as a sauce for chicken or fish. Each 2 tablespoon serving has only 31 calories, 1 gram of fat and 1 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
