Weaning Yourself From Salad Dressing


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Regular salad dressing is full of fat and the healthier ones don't taste too good. Using plain yogurt or Greek yogurt is great, but sometimes you just want a familiar taste. I sometimes use 1Tbsp of my favorite regular salad dressing along with some citrus juice and dried herbs and seasonings. It's the salad dressing I love, but not so much of it! It helps me to "wean" myself from the unhealthier dressing as I go through my journey.

If I'm not over my fat limit I would also add 1tsp of olive or coconut oil. I also chop onions and add habanero (or some other spicy pepper) for more flavor. Sometimes, I even omit the oil and add chopped green olives.
