Stretch The Salad Dressing And Lower The Calories/fat

I'm not a fan of most Fat Free salad dressing. I use about 1 tbsp of regular -- I sprinkle with some type of vinegar -- sometimes red wine vinegar sometimes regular. Sometimes I sprinkle in a little sweetner. I feel good -- it makes the dressing go further and changes the taste very little.

Lime juice can serve as a healthy, low-cal substitute for salad dressing. I have found that I prefer the zing of lime on my salads! Salads in restaurants usually have enough added calories before adding the dressing. One way I keep the calories and fat down is to bring a cut lime in a baggie when I plan to order a salad at a restaurant. Ask them to hold the dressing, squeeze on the lime at the table, and enjoy!
Most salad dressings are empty calories. Instead of regular salad dressing, try salsa, hummus thinned out with water or lemon juice, or any kind of yogurt sauce (greek tzatziki, indian raita, etc.) Any of these have lower calories and more nutrition than the empty fat/sugar calories of salad dressing.
