Tried olive oil on prepared romaine lettuce salad with other veggies egg and chichen and it was kind of bland so will try some lemon or lime favored olive oil used to make a iceberg lettuce salad with veggies and sprinkle it with small amount of salad and let it wilt then add vegetable oil just before serving and my family loved it cannot wait to try the olive oil dressing on them one day at a time

Meds are not something i want to do either and being creative with food choices has proven not only challenging but Fun.

I never smelled or tasted olives or olive oil till I came to US. I can do the Bertolli light. I know it is not as good a the EVOO but I just cant do it. I like to use the lime juice being a Brit. I am definitely a LIMEY.

equal amounts of olive oil, vinegar (balsamic preferably) and lime juice is a perfect vinaigrette. You can add to ir a finely diced garlic clove, let is stand for two hours, and it comes out delicious.

I use light extra virgin olive oil w/balsamic vinegar, sometimes I'll add a little lemon juice.

I stopped using "prepared lite-fat-free" dressing quite a while ago.

When I am at a resturant, sometimes I'll get blue cheese dressing on the side and dip my fork into the dressing then the salad....

I use 'light' olive oil almost exclusively EXCEPT in dishes that I cook containing tomatoes... Definitely on my salads. Then it does not detract from the wonderful freshness of the veggies.

I use vinegar and Dijon mustard with it to make a tasty vinaigrette. I recommend getting a mild flavored olive oil.

Hey there I talked to a woman today who also had hi cholesterol and she was telling me a good salad dressing and tasty choice is olive oil. Has anyone tried this and if so what do you think.
