When I make fat free salad dressing I add a tsp of either Thick & Thin Not Starch, or xanthan gum. This makes a nice thick texture, and the dressing sticks to the salad better. It also adds healthy fiber to my diet.
I only use this when I have other fat in the meal to make sure I can absorb all the nutrients in the salad. I like to add Goat Feta or avocado to my salads. That's when I whip up a fat free dressing to save calories.

I love having salad dressing but they all have so much fat and calories. I have found that dressings by Walden Farms (you can usually find it in the gluten free section of a store) has no calories, no sugar, no fat, no carbs, no cholesterol, is gluten free, and you can get them in almost every reg dressing type! They just have a little sodium! I love it because now I can eat my veggies with dressing and not feel guilty. 224
I love salad dressing and am not a big fan of most fat free varieties. I usually put my salad along with 2 tbsps of my favorite dressing in a large zipper bag and shake until all of the salad is coated. That way I get the extra flavor, without having to add more dressing!
