1/2 the Calories & Fat - All the Flavor: Hellmann's Olive Oil Mayonnaise
Hellmann's Mayonnaise Dressing made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains just half the calories and fat of the Regular Hellmann's Mayonnaise - and ALL the flavor. And it's made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Soybean Oil. Personally, I think it tastes way better than the "light" or "fat free" versions of mayonnaise! 1 Tablespoon is 50 calories, 5 grams of fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 120 mg sodium and less than a gram of carbohydrate.
Thaw frozen veggies into microwave or a steamer & toss them into soups, Dreamfield's pasta or brown rice. Broil sliced vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, & tomatoes for just a few minutes until they blacken around the edges. Serve warm with a low-calorie dressing of lemon juice, low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise, and black pepper or you can add tomatoes, radishes, green or red peppers to a tuna salad made with low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise or just a little Oilive Oil.
Buttermilk Ranch Powder, Light Mayonnaise, and 2% Milk make a low fat low calorie ranch dressing. You can make it to suit yourself. You could even use skim milk. The packet calls for buttermilk and mayonnaise...I substituted the butter milk for 2% and the mayonnaise for Light Mayo.
I love Ranch Dressing and I like Italian, but neither of the two are low calorie. So I came up with the idea to make my own ranch dressing and splurge once in a while on Italian.
