Looking for very low fat salad dressing recipes

I think I should have noted that I can't stand mayonnaise, buttermilk or ranch dressings which makes this even more of a challenge

Looking for very low fat salad dressing recipes

I'm on WW and don't really care for most of the store-bought fat-free and extremely low-fat dressings available. They are usually way too sweet. On WW, fats take up a lot of points so I'd like to find a dressing I can enjoy without being penalized

I know it's early but has anyone seen rhubarb in any local store - either fresh or frozen? I wanted rhubarb crumble for Xmas.

Progresso canned tomatoes

Have these been discontinued? I found them missing completely in all forms at both Vons and Ralphs.

Hatch Chile Roasting 2010

Bristol Farms in Westlake has them for $2.49 a pound. They are not doing the roasting bit in that store but you can order them from one of the stores that are roasting

Quality sushi in the Westlake/Agoura area?

We ate lunch at Kanda today and were very pleased. Prices were high but so was the quality of the fish. We will definitely go back.

Fresh Tuna off the boat

Any idea of the quantity that one is required to purchase? Are we talking 50 pounds or something more manageable?

101 Noodle Express... in Agoura Hills!

We tried this place in January after reading the above but were rather disappointed. Perhaps we ordered wrong. Those of you who have eaten there - any suggestions?

Lamb Shoulder

I have a lot of recipes that call for lamb shoulder - something I never see at any of my local markets. Usually the best I can do is lamb shoulder chops - a pricey substitute. Anyone know of a store that carries shoulder?

London - Valentine's Day- Spanish/Moroccan

I will be in London for 1 day (unfortunately Valentine's Day). I was hoping to eat at Moro but they are fully booked. Can anyone suggest something similar? (Also had my eye on the River Cafe but they are booked.) I'll be staying in Winchester but willing to travel a bit. I'm not looking for a romantic meal (traveling with my brother) but I am looking for a memorable one.

Kid and Vegetarian friendly in Santa Monica area

We need a dinner place for out of town friends who will be staying in Santa Monica. One friend is a vegetarian (rest of us are not) and they don't want anything too fancy or expensive as they will have small kids with them. We had thought of Tra di Noi or Allegria in Malibu but they want something less expensive. We usually go for Italian because of the larger selection of meatless dishes

Rump steak

Does anyone know what the common American equivalent of rump steak is? Nigella has several recipes that call for that cut of meat.

Jewish chicken fricassee recipe

There is a Mimi Sheraton one in the NY Times Jewish Cookbook - it's taken from one of her cookbooks. I make it substituting boneless skinless chicken thighs for the whole chicken.

New Mexican Green chilies

Anyone know of a local source of fresh New Mexican green chilies? Or frozen roasted green?

I used to buy them from New Mexico when they cost $30 for 10 pounds (incl shipping) but they've gone up to about $100 for the same amount.
