I mostly use just plain balsamic vinegar. Once in awhile I'll add a little olive oil. Same with red wine vinegar. A tbsp fresh grated parmesan on a salad isn't enough to increase sodium much and adds some flavor. Making your own herbed vinegars is another possibility. Ready made flavored vinegars can be high in sodium.

In the great shipyard of life it helps to be a little dinghy.

I use a small amount of creamy dressing, about 1/4 cup, then fill the bottle with Balsamic vinegar.

I also use the red wine vinagrette too.

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

A few years ago I went looking for an Italian dressing with lower sodium for a recipe I was making. What I found was that Wish Bone red wine vinaigrette had less sodium than any other brand I looked at, even the "healthy" brands I found at Whole Foods. That being said, it wasn't really low sodium, just lower than the other brands I looked at. I can't speak to whether or not any other Wish Bone varieties are lower in sodium than other brands, just to the fact that this was the lowest sodium that I could find in an Italian type of salad dressing.

When I visit my parents my mom sometimes makes salad dressing. The recipe she uses is either 1 part oil to 2 parts vinegar or 1 part vinegar to 2 parts oil. I'm not sure which one because I've never tried to make it myself. Sorry to not be any more helpful than that, but I figured I'd at least share what little I know on this subject.

There was much rejoicing!

Any suggestions for low sodium salad dressing? I am horrified looking at the sodium content of the kinds that I own and the ones I have seen in the grocery store. I am sensing that it will be necessary to make my own. Who has a great recipe?
