Cut calories by substituting stock for oil in vinaigrettes

Our customers are looking for healthier, lighter menu items that are still very flavorful and satisfying. For our signature Truffled Grilled Lobster, we reduced lobster stock and added it to a truffle vinaigrette. It emulsified beautifully with half the amount of oil we used previously. When you remove fat and calories, you have to add something that will provide a comparable mouthfeel and flavor, and this was a success. We also created a sesame ginger vinaigrette for grilled fish. These new recipes are a result of our participation in Unilever's Seductive Nutrition Challenge, in which operators pledge to reduce a popular dish by 100 calories.
