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!
Love creamy salad dressing, but hate the calories that come with it? Ask for your dressing on the side (or put in a bowl at home) and dip the edge of each lettuce leaf and veggie in it. You'll use a lot less, but get all the flavour!
Yogurt dips make excellent salad dressings! Lower in calories, plus they have protein.
