Fat-Free Prune & Balsamic Dressing

I’m in love with prunes. I love everything about them. The fact that they are an easy snack to throw in my purse in the morning, that they help in keeping me ... well ... regular and that, as studies have shown, they help in keeping my bones strong. That’s why I really love this recipe! It allows me to take a snack staple and make it a salad dressing option. Not only do the prunes in this recipe create some fiber (how many dressings can boast that?), but they also provide an alternative to the fat, making this option less calories than traditional dressings. Get the recipe!
