Default Salad Question

I get heartburn from salad dressings, is there any alternative to add onto salad in place of dressings?

You don't have to use salad dressing at all....just have the salad as is. Is it all salad dressings that give you heartburn?

Lemon Juice & Olive oil w/ S&P are always a light alternative.

Alot of food gives me heartburn (which obviously was a sign), but since being on this diet I haven't had any heartburn thank god.. I used to get it every single day and always had to take a Prilosec..

I haven't tried all salad dressings, but if they are all the same then that's no help to me. And I dunno what dressings we can have on the SBD either. Maybe if there is a mild dressing I could try, see if that gives me heartburn.. anyone know of any?

have you talked to your doctor about the chronic constant heartburn? it could be a hiatal hernia.

Have you tried oil/vinegar? I would just stay away from acidic things if you know that's the problem- so you could do a little mustard and a little olive oil.

Or, I just put avocado chopped fine into a salad, mix the salad up, and my avocado becomes my dressing....

That would be a good fat, with little to no acidity. Put in a little pepper, and you'd be good to go. Should be very tasty!

No, I didn't think heartburn was serious. I thought everybody had it. My dad did mention how a friend of his had to get checked because he had acid reflex and I think he had a hiatal hernia and now has to get it removed or whatever they do.

I don't have any medical insurance either unfortunately so if anything goes wrong with me or if anything is serious I'm screwed. That's life when you're unemployed and can't find a job with benefits.

I have acid reflux and react to acids in foods and some other triggers....but salad dressings have never been a problem (but I stay away from ones with acids such as vinegar)......try hidden valley ranch....I am sure you can find one that you will be fine with.

You should get checked out by a doctor. Heartburn can be serious! DH had it for years, and we didn't think it was serious either. It took a trip to the ER with heart attack symptoms to find out that it was GERD (Gastroesophogeal reflux disease). The acid wears away the lining of the esophagus, and can lead to cancer. He has to take Nexium daily and have an endoscopy every 6 months. Hopefully you don't have all that going on, but just keep in mind that you should get checked out when you can. Good luck!

definitely get the heartburn checked. . .maybe there is a clinic in your area. I use shredded cheese or Parm on my salad and some herbs if its lunch I do a full serving of LF shredded cheese and LF luncheon Meat. . .I just don't like soggy salad
Also Flax and Parmesan are nice too!

Well I have gotten heartburn from Italian dressings, even the light and fat free ones.. so maybe I will try the hidden valley ranch.. are salad dressings forbidden on the SBD or can they be used?

salad dressing has to meet the requirements of good fats (olive oil or canola oil or soybean oil) and have 11-16 grams of fat per serving and have less than 3 grams of sugar per serving) and no HFCS...


a serving is 2 tablespoons.
