I wanted to see what it would taste like with a lower fat content, so I cut the walnut oil in half and added a little extra mustard. It was amazing. I can only imagine the original is probably better with the extra walnut oil, but I certainly didn’t miss it in mine. I think that using the walnut oil instead of the canola was key in being able to cut the fat content. The flavor adds so much to this dressing. For those wanting to try this recipe with a lower calorie content, my modification is as follows:
¼ c walnut oil ¼ c maple syrup ¼ c cider vinegar 2½ T mustard 1 T soy sauce ½ t salt ½ t pepper
