1 tbsp of your favorite olive oil

Stir together the Ideal Protein Raspberry Flavored Gelatin and the "Garlic and Herb"

Seasoning. Drizzle the olive oil over a salad and toss. Now toss and sprinkle in the combined

Raspberry Dash dressing and enjoy!

Tip: keep a pre-mixed dressing shaker with you to take into restaurants.

Variations: create a dipping sauce by mixing in (small amounts of) lemon juice and the olive

oil ahead of time. (After a while, the gelatin sets up and settles to the bottom, so stir the

mixture up as you dip. It makes little globs, bursting with flavor, which sticks loosely to what

you are dipping (celery never tasted so good!)
