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.

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?
