This dressing can be used on salads of all types, or as a sauce on cold fish, poultry, or meat. Also, by substituting white wine or pineapple juice for the rice vinegar called for, it can be served as a dessert or a chilled fruit soup.

I originally created this recipe for my Dad, who was diabetic but loved his barbecue. The key ingredients are the low-carb ketchup, and brown-sugar Splenda. Most of the rest can be tweaked to your liking. I’ve passed this recipe along to several friends and family members who were trying to eat healthier, or were diabetic as well, and it always gets rave reviews.
