Fat Free Canyon Ranch Jet Fuel Salad Dressing

A Canyon Ranch Spa Guest Favorite!

Have you ever dreamt of spending a week at Canyon Ranch Spa? You may have been since you saw Oprah do a show from there.

You may have a recurring dream of pampering and eating healthy gourmet food as you go swimming in beautiful pools or taking phenomenal hikes!  Don’t forget about the massages?  Canyon Ranch Spa may sing to your soul and be a dream you’re dreaming!

Well, this phenomenal fat-free salad dressing has been a guest favorite at Canyon Ranch for over 25 years.

It was first published in a book called  Jet Fuel, The New Food Strategy for the High-Performance Person, published in 1984.  The flavor of this dressing is better if the combination is made the day before you plan to use it, allowing the flavors to marry.
