March is National Sauce Month. Most sauces aren't a good fit for low-carb diets because they contain flour, cornstarch sugar, and other high-carb ingredients. However, it's entirely possible to minimize the carbs in sauces without sacrificing flavor or texture, as demonstrated in these 5 delicious recipes. Enjoy!
