A Canyon Ranch Spa Guest Favorite!

Have you ever dreamt of spending a week at Canyon Ranch Spa?  I know I have — ever since I saw Oprah do a show from there.

Oh yeah, baby!  This girl has a recurring dream — pampering — eating healthy gourmet food — swimming in beautiful pools — taking phenomenal hikes — you get the idea!  Did I mention massages?  Canyon Ranch Spa sings to my soul!

Well, I can’t offer you all that, but I can offer you this phenomenal fat-free salad dressing that has been a guest favorite at Canyon Ranch for ov3er 25 years.

It was first published in a book called  Jet Fuel, The New Food Strategy for the High Performance Person, published in 1984.  I L-O-V-E this salad dressing and I’ve discovered that the flavor is better if the combination is made the day before you plan to use it, allowing the flavors to marry.

I luv the Cuisine separation, i think I will try the Asian but I will replace the lemon juice with lime extract – its a little smoother.
