“Besides dressing vegetables such as asparagus, carrots, broccoli and cabbage, this sauce can be used to marinate fish, poultry or pork dishes. This makes far more than is needed for a vegetable side dish, but it can be refrigerated or frozen for future use - but it can also be easily halved if desired (you only need 1-2 T per vegetable serving). It's low-fat too!”
