These sound good! Here's a super-easy, tasty vinaigrette for those who want to avoid fat:

1/4 cup white balsamic or other vinegar (also good with red wine vinegar or regular balsamic)
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp stevia extract (I use SweetLeaf, as it is the purest, without additives like dextrose)
a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and any dried herbs you like

Whisk it together, and enjoy!

Wow - these sound great! I love avocado so that will be the first I try. I grill alot of veggies and sometimes for different taste, at the end I add a bit of pesto but both of these sound like great alternatives to the pesto, garlic or ginger I usually use as well as for salad!

Tomato dressing! Fabulous!!!

Of course, I had a hard time leaving it alone, and there weren't any measurements given... so here is my (revised) recipe:

50 grams sun dried tomatoes (rehydrated with boiling water and drained)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp grated parmigiano cheese

Blend in the blender.

Ummmm.... the Avocado dressing was GREAT! Really thick and creamy! Makes about 1 cup, so I wish yo were all here to share it with me. Don't know how the rest will keep in the fridge. I covered inplastic and in an airtight container.
I was thinking MMMM I bet this would make a nice spread on a chicken sandwich.

Amber, I added it to the team cookbook.

Tomato Balsamic Dressing

Rehydrate sun dried tomatoes in boiling water to barely cover.
Add fresh oregano, salt, pepper to taste.
Add Balsamic vinegar.
Puree with an immersion blender until smooth.

It is a thick dressing that tastes delish.
