Is there anything anyone uses instead of salad dressing? I want to cut down on the calories
I looove ranch and Caesar dressing but I put so much on my salad that it defeats the purpose of even eating a salad.
One of my friends uses the ranch powder mix dry on her salad instead of actual dressing. I tried it and it still tastes good but I cant eat the salad dry.
Ive tried italian and im not a fan.
:) TY

I put cottage cheese on my salads.

Get some olive oil and balsamic from the Temecula Olive Oil Company and you can make your own dressing with less olive oil. Olive oil is a much healthier fat anyway.

Im not a big fan of olive oil sadly.
I would have never thought to use lemon juice. I love the smell!


What does it taste like?
Clearly Ive been a ranch eater my whole life lol

I've been using the spray. It still has the flavor but it's only 1 calorie a spray!

Oh but if you tried some of their basil infused olive oil with some pomegranate balsamic in it, you would change your mind! :D They have other infused olive oils as well plus different types of balsamic. Yum...

There are various flavors of vinaigrette you can buy. I make my own strawberry vinaigrette with all fresh ingredients and the only sugar added is what comes naturally in the fruit or by nature. ;)

I don't really measure but I put together about a cup of strawberries pureed, raspberry vinaigrette, minced garlic, olive oil and a hint of honey.

I love vinegar. I make my own balsamic vinaigrette. Balsamic, olive oil, a table spoon dijon mustard, salt, pepper a little bit of italian herb blend, and a kiss of brown sugar to cut the tart...shake it up and enjoy. yum!

Ken's makes a awesome balsamic, it's called
Balsamic with Honey. Just make sure you follow the serving size because it does have more calories then regular balsamic.

2 table spoons olive oil
1 table spoon lemon juice
1 fresh minced garlic clove

It's not ranch or caesar but it is AMAZING, especially on summer salads! Pus, it can be used as a marinade for chicken.

Also, try looking for your favorite dressings made with greek yogurt instead. The calories are cut in half and the dressings are well worth the extra 2-3 dollars.

The dressings can be found in most grocery stores in the same area where refigerated dressings are sold.

Walden Farms makes a salad dressing that is zero cal, zero carb. I have not tried it but will soon. They carry it at Albertsons.
