I was checking this thousand island dressing in the grocery store from company called "walde farms" who claim that its calorie-free!

its ingredients show worcestershire sauce (which i guess is not vegetarian) ... is this true? is thousand island dressing vegetarian?

Thanks~

Not technically vegetarian since most versions contain anchovies:

Worcestershire sauce is a widely used fermented liquid condiment. It is currently made with vinegar, molasses, corn syrup, water, chilli peppers, soy sauce, pepper, tamarinds, anchovies, onions, shallots, cloves and garlic.

Thanks for clarifying my suspision..I knew worcestershire sauce had anchovies.

Glassy: I was looking only at the zero calorie dressings from walden farms.

Whether it's vegetarian or not, I can tell you it's not particularly tasty :barf: I had it one salad and threw the (expensive) bottle away--I threw away the rest of that salad after just a few bites, too :devil: It has zero fat, zero carbs, zero calories...and zero taste :p

Jilly, I had a similar reaction to the calorie free French dressing they make. The stuff was just plain gross to me. I had a serious "Ick" reaction to it.
