I'm pretty picky about diet dressing and when I go out to eat, they usually don't have the kind of light dressing that tastes good. So I order regular dressing on the side and dip my fork in the dressing then take some salad. I get flavor in every bite without drowning my healthy salad in fatty dressing.

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.4
Instead of pouring salad dressing on your food, just dip the tips of the tines of your fork in the dressing before you stick the fork in the salad. This way, you'll have the flavor of the dressing in each bite while saving a lot of calories that your salad would normally be swimming in.
I have found that I eat far less dressing this way. I just ate a caesar with dressing on the side. Using this technique, I only ate 1/4 of the side of dressing instead of dumping the whole thing on my salad.
