Any You Guys Use Rice Vinegar?
 
I used to eat alot of salads when trying to drop some weight. One day some dude siad I ought to try rice vinegar. I had never heard of it, it's in the oriental section at the markets. Could be that I'm not much of an Oriental eater.:D

So I picked it up and it's pretty darn good. Taste much like balsamic salad dressing, maybe a little sharper. I use it on sliced up cucumbers with red chili powder. OR a salad with some grated cheese to help smooth it out a bit. I have to say that when I eat it with cucumbers, I love to sip the last of what's left on the plate. It's like biting into a lemon.:thumb:

Either way, I use it on salads to avoid the fat in regular dressings when I'm trying to cut back. Try it, you might like it!

A bottle at the market might be about $3. Maybe 3 different flavors (gralic & herb). A big bottle at Smart & Final is aobut 10 bucks. I stock up on it there an refill my little bottle when it empties. Only flavor at S&M is the regular but for that price, heck, I add garlic salt.:D

So if for anyone else like me who can't stand the taste of lowfat dressings, this works fer me.

For salads I'm partial a bit of high quality olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. I may have to try the rice vinegar, sounds yummy. Malt vinegar is tasty on French fries :)

Oh man... I have a feeling I'd be visiting Mr. Tums not long thereafter! :eek: ...more due to the cucumbers than chili powder. Although I do have a propensity for eating (and enjoying!) things that come back to haunt me during the wee hours. :D

I guess I didn't think of that. Maybe the videgar kills the cucumber, but I never have a problem with this combo. I do with cucs in a salad though.

I so feel your pain!! Someone suggested I try peeling "Burpless Cucumbers." Didn't work.

I love rice vinegar as a salad dressing.
I will add a little garlic salt also.
Good stuff

Been using it for years. Love the stuff. Found out about it when I was stationed in Japan.

Mr. Beanz 03-03-11 12:18 PM

There ya go! A few testimonials.:D

ecovelo 03-05-11 12:24 AM

I drizzle it on steamed veggies..... been doing so for at least a decade. :)

There is a lot of sodium in the SEASONED rice vinegars. I use NAKANO NATURAL which has no sodium and no calories. Our local A&P has had it on sale lately - 3 bottles for 5 bucks. I like it because it's a bit milder than regular vinegar. I use it as a seasoning and condiment on a lot of foods. Great way to cut calories. Enjoy.

Sounds good...I love balsamic and I need to drop a few lbs so I will definitely give it a try.

Anyone else open this thread expecting another chain lube thread?

jboyd 03-05-11 05:57 PM

OK, Mr Beanz is so on this. On his advice, I bought some today and tried it. Holy Crap...........that is awesome!!

I am a vinegar lover anyway and this stuff is great.

Thanks Beanz

I think you add the coconut vinegar to olive oil, to thin the olive oil so it penetrates the chain links.

:roflmao2:...I really do avoid oils though. Gina's always saying to use olive oil cause it's good for you. I've used it to cook but I swear I feel a bag of oil sitting in my stomach when I do.:mad:

I've experimented with lots of stuff for salad dressings. You should try balsamic, wine/sherry, apple cider, and other vinegars as well. Lots of flavors out there.

You can also make really tasty low calorie dressings by adding things like dijon/brown mustard (also adding splenda and water makes a tasty honey-mustard taste-alinke), fat-free mayonaise or yogurt, etc.

Just add things together with the spices of your choice to the consistency that you like. There are a bunch of fast, easy, and decent recipes out there too.
