    This dressing is recommended for the Sort of Hero Sandwich. I was crunched for time: Alternatively, I bought a bottle of creamy, Southwest-style tomato vinaigrette then added two packets of granulated Splenda brand sweetner. Saved a bundle of time and the sandwich was, well, A Real Hero. Try it!
