Whenever I order a salad, I ALWAYS ask for the dressing on the side. Instead of pouring it on my salad, I just dip the fork tines in the dressing. I don't eat much dressing, but every bite has a little bit on it.

Lime juice can serve as a healthy, low-cal substitute for salad dressing. I have found that I prefer the zing of lime on my salads! Salads in restaurants usually have enough added calories before adding the dressing. One way I keep the calories and fat down is to bring a cut lime in a baggie when I plan to order a salad at a restaurant. Ask them to hold the dressing, squeeze on the lime at the table, and enjoy!
When I order a tossed salad in a restaurant, or when making it at home, I have my salad dressing on the side. Before each bite of salad I dip the fork prongs barely in the dressing. Then pick up some salad. You use very little dressing and still taste it with every bite.
