Light Balsamic Vinagrette is what I use now...but my true favorite is full fat Cesaer Parmesan! But I only use that once a month or if I burn more than 1000 calories that day. :-)


Is it tomorrow already?

I don't like most store bought salad dressings. Olive oil and balsamic is better than anything!

10/21/13 12:38 P

I like to saute some onions, mushrooms, garlic, and celery in a tsp of olive oil and a splash of either red wine or balsamic vinegar and use that as a topping for a salad when I'm wanting something warm. It's pretty easy to pre-cook it the night before, package it separately from the greens, and nuke it for a minute the next day, too, if you want it at work.

If I want to keep it cold, then I like to use cottage cheese mixed with spices as my "dressing". Tastes great and it's an extra protein hit.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. Please don't let fear stop you - cover your butt!

Newman's Own Lite Honey Mustard dressing is my FAVORITE! It pairs really well with a bit of feta, too.

I love the Walden Farms Chipotole Ranch, and I like to mix the Walden Farms Sweet Onion with Taco Bell hot sauce. Both are yummy and 0 calories. The Italian is good, too.

Definitely any of the Naturally Fresh salad dressings. I love all of them. They're sold refrigerated so you won't find them with the other bottled dressings on the shelves.

For bottled dressing my go-to standard is Little Creek (probably too local/niche market for anyone outside my general area to know about, but, there's my plug for it anyways).

However, I usually just make my own. Good quality olive oil plus vinegar (cider, balsamic, red wine or white wine... i have all 4 kinds!) OR lemon juice, add a bit of dijon mustard, salt and pepper, voila - dressing. Add garlic or anchovy paste and a dash of tabasco - voila, caesar dressing.

I like Trader Joe's Balsamic Vinaigrette!! I don't go for the fat-free because the olive oil in this is good for you.

I love good season's Italian dressing. I make my own and put in half the oil (olive) that it calls for.

I use Ken's Steakhouse Lite Asian Sesame dressing 1 T = 35 calories and I mix it with Kikkoman Ponzu Sauce 1 T = 10 calories. Ponzu Sauce, fyi, is a soy sauce with a citrus flavor. I LOVE this combination, but if you're salt sensitive, this is not for you.

I love Annie's Goddess, but I also use a fat-free balsamic vinaigrette (I think the brand might be Old Cape Cod?) and love that for variety.

10/15/13 1:42 P

I need to branch off from my usual salad dressings. I only buy the Light House Zesty Italian dressing and the Annie's Goddess dressing.

What are your favorite salad dressings? (store bought or homemade)
