Instead of pouring salad dressing on your salad (and losing control of how much you are eating)...keep the dressing in a cup on the side and dip your fork into the dressing and then grab a forkful of your salad. A little dressing stays on the fork and is just enough to suit your tastebuds.

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!
make salad dressing with mortar and pestle. pound one half clove garlic with course salt. add one tablespoon olive oil. Then mix well with pestle. Add a pinch of sugar and a tiny bit of mustard. Then add 3 large tablespoons of plain yogurt, and two tablesp. vinegar. adjust seasoning
If you use some plain yogurt instead of OIL in the salad dressing, you get a delicious creamy salad dressing
