Are you still looking for that perfect sized one serving salad dressing container? If you have an empty medicine bottle laying around your problem is solved. I use a 3" x 1" medicine bottle. It holds 2 tablespoons of salad dressing and it doesn't leak all over my lunch pail.

Getting salad dressing on the side is a no brainer when trying to eat better, but often the containers they bring out contain more dressing than they would have put on the salad in the first place! Dip your fork into your dressing before getting a bit of salad. That way every bite has a bit of dressing, but you save lots of calories. I can generally eat an entire dinner salad with 1 tsbp (or less) of dressing this way.
Hello fellow Sparkies! Something to try: instead of pouring your salad dressing on your salad, try pouring it into a different (smaller) container...when you go to eat your salad, dip your fork into the container with each bite. This way you are eating WAY less calories, fat, carbs...etc. because you aren't 'drowning' your salad in the dressing, but still getting the good taste with every bite :)
I abhor low cal salad dressings. I wanted to keep the full flavor of my favorite creamy style dressing but not all the calories. In order to give me that ability I measure out 1 tsp of salad dressing, then I dip the tines of my fork in the salad dressing and pick up a bite of salad. I get a taste of my yummy salad dressing in each bite and use no more than a teaspoon of salad dressing, in fact, usually I use less than that!
