Keep It FODMAP Friendly
This low FODMAP vinaigrette is the perfect pair for your summer greens. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First, Monash University has determined that olive oil and lemon juice don’t have any FODMAPs. So, you can add as much of these two ingredients as you want without adding to your FODMAP load.
Next up, red wine vinegar. According to the Monash app, red wine vinegar is safe in servings of 2 tbsp. This recipe uses 1 tbsp for 8 servings, which is well within the recommended range.
Our final ingredient is Dijon mustard. Monash recently updated their app to say Dijon mustard is safe in servings of 1 tbsp per sitting. This recipe uses 2 tsp of Dijon mustard in total which is well within the recommended serving size. Remember to check the label for any sneaky high FODMAP ingredients.
