100 lb. Club - What is your favorite Salad Dressing?

I saw in the dinner thread, Tiffany said that Ken's Light Caesar is her favorite. We have that but haven't opened it yet - so now I'm excited to try it!

My favorite right now (well, I have two!) are:

WishBone Light! Balsamic Basil Vinaigrette
2 TBSP - 60 Cal, 5 g fat, 290 mg sodium, 3 g carb, 2 g sugar, 0 g protein

Paul Newman's Lighten Up! Lowfat Sesame Ginger
2 TBSP - 35 cal, 1.5 g fat, 390 mg sodium, 5 g carb, 4 g sugar, 0 g protein.

They are both tasty and I normally don't like vinaigrettes as much as the creamy kind. And I usually don't use the whole serving either, so it's even better!

What are your finds?

Those both sound very good, especially the sesame ginger...

The Ken's Light Caesar is a bit tangy, but I like the kick it adds to the sald.

I just bought Ken's Light Raspberry Vinagrette, so I'm hoping that it will be good as well.

I'm trying to eat more salads, especially for dinner.

I don't really care for salad dressing but I do use various salsas for my salad dressing. They are really good and low calorie.

My favorite (of course :lol: ) is:

Meg's Salad Dressing

Place all ingredients in a food processor:

1 cup low fat or nonfat mayonnaise (I use Hellman's reduced calorie mayo)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, quartered

Process until smooth. Keep refrigerated.

Per tablespoon:

25 calories

I squeeze some fresh lemon juice over my salad or a little balsamic vinegar -both are practically zero calories.

I cannot live without ranch dressing! I use the fat-free variety so I don't feel as guilty when I eat it.On NutriSystem I am allowed to have it (in moderation,of course) twice a day,so thank goodness for that! I use it on my salads at lunchtime and to dip my veggies at dinnertime.:)

I love the Trader Joes LF parmesan ranch. Its quite low in fat/calories, a little thinner than a typical salad dressing, and has a little bit of a peppery kick to it.

Good ol' oil and balsamic vinegar!

Hate to admit how boring I am . . . I honestly like Kraft Fat Free Italian at 5 calories a Tbsp. :o

My favorite salad dressing is a homemade Gorgonzola Blue Cheese. Since I found out it is 300 calories for the container that our local restaurant gives "on the side", I dip my fork in it and eat only 1/2 of the container at a time. I figure that a piece of their homemade bread, a salad made with just spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, and carrots, and my Diet Coke STILL keeps me at about 300 calories. The dressing is SO GOOD I am willing to forego the other menu items and just enjoy the bread, salad, and DRESSING. Mmmmm! I have learned to be happy with a lot less dressing than I used to use.

At home I like Trader Joe's Basamic Vinigrette. It is 60 calories for 2 tablespoons.

I like light Italian dressing the best, followed by Kraft Red Pepper and Parmesan or Sundried tomatoe and oregano. :)

:carrot: I love the light ranch dressing! I don't use a lot on my salad so I don't feel so bad.:carrot:

Depends on the type of salad...

I love balsamic/oil... love calorie wise french, or like Raelynn, I'm a big fan of Kraft Red Pepper and Parmesan or Sundried Tomato & Oregano

Hey all! With all the talk about different salad dressings it made me want to try something different than the light ranch dressing that I use (Which is 70 calories!) So I went to the store after the gym, and bought the Light Zesty Italian dressing and I actually liked it! I had no idea lol, and plus it's even better with only 25 calories! I just had to share that with you all, thanks for the help, even though I wasn't really looking for it lol.... =)
