A Few of My Favorite Things: 0 Weight Watcher Points Plus Condiments

1. My absolute favorite, which my hubby and I can no longer go without, is Sriracha HOT chili sauce. (Believe me there is a reason the word HOT is in all caps.) My hubby and I love all things spicy but this is not your typical hot sauce. Well technically it isn't a hot sauce at all but a chili sauce. Anyways I could try to describe this to you but if you like things with a kick just go out and buy it TODAY. It is great on everything: eggs, pizza, burgers, mixed into ketchup for fries, in Asian sauces, etc. I used it on my crab cakes and it was a big hit. Thanks to my Dad for this discovery. The best thing is that there are barely any calories so this adds tons of flavor without any points.

2. Coming in second is my good friend Balsamic Vinegar. BV is 0 pp and it is a great flavor enhancer. I love using it on salads so I don't have to use a ton of dressing. It works well in marinades too. Or you can just drizzle it on a slice of tomato. The BV pictured isn't just any balsamic it is 25 Star from the Olive Grove. It is so good. Once you buy good balsamic you won't go back. It was great on this flank steak recipe!

3. Number 3 is difficult to describe. It is a grainy mustard but it doesn't have same bite as your typical grainy mustard. The garlic balances it out beautifully. I use this on salmon, potatoes, sandwiches, burgers and today I used to dip my chicken nuggets. (I know fancy, right?) If you live by a Trader Joe's buy this. You won't be disappointed. Thanks to my friend Holly for introducing this to me and for this clutch potato recipe!!!!

4. I bought this Franks RedHot buffalo wing sauce to make Rocco's buffalo chicken tender recipe. I opened it up early to use on our turkey burgers and instantly fell in love. Today I used it as a dip for my sweet potato fries. This sauce is great because it has some spice but it isn't overwhelming. And you can dip without worrying because it is guilt-free. I can't wait to try it on the chicken tenders. Thanks to Rocco for the tip!

thanks for the great tips! I love using hot sauce as well...never thought of putting it in ketchup or on pizza, great idea!

If you want to try another really good Balsamic Vinegar product try "Balsamic Glaze" by Gia Russa (they sell it at Busch's, I think Johnny Pomodoro's and possibly at Kroger...not sure about Kroger) It is thicker than traditional Balsamic Vinegar and that is part of what I like about it. It has a little more oooomph! I believe it is also "0" points. If you try it I hope you love it as much as I do!

I love balsamic glaze. You can make it by doing a reduction of balsamic vinegar on the stove-top.
