Ken's Lite Northern Italian with Basil & Romano is really good, and only 45 calories for two tablespoons. The whole line of Ken's Steak House lite dressings are really good. I also love Newman's Own Lowfat Sesame Ginger dressing. I think it's only 35 calories for 2 tablespoons. It's hard to believe there can be so much flavor without more calories than that. The Newman's Own Lowfat Sesame Ginger is somewhat high in sodium, that's the only thing to watch on that.

I make fresh ranch dressing each week using lowfat buttermilk, greek yogurt, and dried herbs and spices.

I make all my salad dressings, except for poppyseed, for which I use Brianna's. Absolutely delicious on fruit salads.

The salad spritzers are Wish Bone brand. They are very low calorie and taste great. I like the Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette. It's great on salad and I even put it on pasta when I have it on occasion.

There is another thread already started about low calorie salad dressings, I had wondered this myself and found bolthouse yogurt dressings to in the range of 30 to 45 calories for 2 tbs and very tasting, I bough the honey mustard and the vinigrette ones to try, also found wishbone has olive oil dressing for 60 calories for 2 tbs and vingrette for 60 calroies for 2 tbs. A lot healthier than the thousand island I was using at 145 calories for 2 tbs.

Stick to vinaigrettes, they are generally better for you, I think because they are vinegar based, rather than milk or cream based like, say, ranch dressing. Make sure you read your labels, nd compare different kinds to look for ones that are lowest in calories. Also, I forget which company makes it , but there is a line of dressings called "Salad Spritzers" where the dressing comes out of a spray bottle, and it gives you a little more bang for your buck, calorie wise. (The ranch flavor is only 15 calories per 10 sprays, which is more than enough to cover a full-size salad.)

Going to the store tomorrow, can anyone suggest some healthy salad dressings?

Also, while I'm here...what's the difference between dressings and vinaigrettes?
