When ever I eat salad I ask for the dressing on the side. Then I dip my fork in the dressing and then take a bite of salad. When I am through I have used only a small fraction of the dressing, but I still get the dressing taste with every bite and I don't feel I have missed out on anything.
This technique works especially well with stronger tasting dressing like peppercorn ranch.

make salad dressing with mortar and pestle. pound one half clove garlic with course salt. add one tablespoon olive oil. Then mix well with pestle. Add a pinch of sugar and a tiny bit of mustard. Then add 3 large tablespoons of plain yogurt, and two tablesp. vinegar. adjust seasoning

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!
