Special Notes by poster:
This unique, fat-free dressing/dip REALLY tastes like it’s high-fat. It’s my own original creation, no affiliation with any of the brand names. I know the Pringles ingredient sounds weird, but it’s the secret to the high-fat taste. You’d never guess there are Pringles in it if you didn’t know beforehand. Technically, the points calculation is 1/4 point per serving if a serving is considered to be two tablespoons. But this recipe format wouldn’t accept a fraction for the estimated points per serving, so I rounded down for the per serving count.
