Chop your parsley fine and add to a bowl. Crush your garlic glove over the parsley and add your chopped shallot.

Add the sweetener / fructose  and the salt.

Add the rice vinegar and the salad dressing and whisk.

Add the low-fat mayonnaise and the rind of 1/2 lemon and whisk again.

Use a fennel to transfer your salad dressing to a resealable bottle or container.

Keep in the fridge for up to a week.

You can easily double the recipe.

The added Greek salad dressing is optional and can be left out completely, just make sure you adjust your vinegar for the right consistency.

Use any fresh herbs available, next time try basil, flat leave parsley or cilantro.

Have over sliced tomatoes for a quick meal.

Have it over chicken, fish or red meat for some added flavour to your meal.

Perfect over a baked potato or splashed over roasted veggies.

If you want to use it for a potato salad then reduce half of the vinegar.
