Fatfree Dressing to Carry in Purse

I simply carry a small bottle (think it holds about 4 oz) of my favorite.
This is the recipe for a full 12 oz bottle - I cut it in thirds for the
little one.  It looks nice too when I pull it out of my purse.  Usually
have to share some.

Fatfree Basil Vinegar Dressing:
Barb Beck

1 bottle (12 oz) vinegar (I use white wine)
1 Tablespoon peppercorns
1 Tablespoon mustard seed
1 Red jalapeno chili (can be green but looks nicer red)
   (can sub a little red bell pepper)
2 sprigs fresh basil
2 - 4 cloves of garlic

(Salt or light soy sauce)

Remove some of the vinegar from the bottle.  Put the pepper, mustard seed
and garlic into the bottle. Stuff in the basil in stem first (so it looks
vaguely like it is growing from the pepper and mustard seed)and top with
red pepper.  Flavor imporves in a couple days but good right away.  If you
remove the lable from the bottle it looks nice too. 

BTW cut the garlic and pepper into strips so they will fit easily in the

I use this and a very light soy sauce for salads at home.  For the
bottle that fits in my purse I some times add salt so I do not have to
fool with it later.
