Fat-Free Pineapple-Tarragon Dressing

The sweetness of tarragon and pineapple play off one another beautiful in this tart-sweet-hot salad dressing.

Citrus-Roasted Snapper

Lime juice and orange juice season this simple baked fish dish. This type of treatment would work well for firm-fleshed fish as well as fatty types of fish: Try grouper, mackerel, or bluefish.

Broiled Flank Steak with Spicy Orange-Chipotle Marinade

The deep flavors of this marinade—which combines smoky chipotle peppers with orange juice, ketchup, and allspice—are well suited to strongly flavored meats, such as the flank steak here, but you could also try it on duck or lamb brochettes.

Orange-Grilled Nectarines

This tastes like a hot peach pie without the crust. Serve the fruit with a dollop of low-fat yogurt. You can sweeten the yogurt with some artificial sweetener or just a bit of sugar, depending on how strict you are being. This makes a single serving, but just multiply the ingredients if you are cooking for others.


Hot and sweet at the same time, this is a very refreshing summer drink. If you like, stir the ginger syrup into water and freeze in ice cube trays, then use the ginger ice cubes to flavor other cold drinks such as cranberry juice or fruit nectars.

Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce

Serve this sweet-hot dipping sauce with grilled shrimp, broiled chicken or pork, or steamed wontons.

Aromatic Rice with Lentils & Black-Eyed Peas

Aromatic rices, such as basmati and jasmine, add dimension to simple bean and rice dishes, but you could certainly substitute regular long-grain white rice in this recipe.

Warm Curried Chicken & Sweet Potato Salad

The creamy dressing for this warm salad is laced with fresh mint and cilantro. If fresh mint is not easy to come by, substitute 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried mint.

Strawberry Mousse

Cold Carrot Soup with Red Pepper & Mint
