  1. Here's a start with a Non-Fat Vinaigrette recipe. Maybe you could tweek it.

    Paraphrased recipe:

    Non-Fat Vinaigrette

    1 packet unflavored gelatin
    1/2 cup cold water
    1 cup boiling water
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    1 tbsp Dijon-style mustard
    1 tsp fresh dill or 1 tbsp dried dill
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp black pepper

    In a blender, sprinkle unflavored gelatin
    over 1/2 cup cold water. Let stand 2 minutes.

    Add 1 cup boiling water and process at low speed
    until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about
    2 minutes.

    Add red wine vinegar, Dijon-style mustard, dill,
    garlic powder, salt and pepper.

    Process at low speed until blended.

    Pour into a bowl and chill until slightly thickened,
    about 2 hours.

    Before serving, stir until smooth.

    Can be stored in fridge in covered container up to
    five days.

    Makes about 2 cups.

        Hi there - I love the potbelly dressing as well. Did this come close??

    1. Potbelly uses Hendricksons Original Sweet Vinegar & Olive Oil Dressing. I also love that dressing and through research found that this is what they use.

        Except the OP is looking for the non-fat version so I doubt there is olive oil in the recipe.
