Salad Dressing Breakdown

Since holiday feasting can leave you feeling full and bloated, salads are a great option to lighten up your meals. And what's a salad without your favorite dressing? Beware because those drips and drizzles can add on hidden calories and fat. In 2 tablespoons of dressing, you'll get:

Annie's Goddess: 13 g fat, 130 cals
Annie's Thousand Island: 7g fat, 90 cals
Hidden Valley Ranch: 14g fat, 140 cals
Hidden Valley Ranch Light: 7 g fat, 80 cals
Ken's Steak House Caesar: 18g fat, 170 cals
Ken's Steak House Lite Caesar: 6g fat, 70 cals
Kraft Zesty Italian: 11g fat, 109 cals
Kraft Fat-Free Italian: .3g fat, 20 cals
Maple Grove Farms Honey Dijon: 0g fat, 40 cals
Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette: 9g fat, 90 cals
Newman's Own Lighten Up Balsamic Vinaigrette: 4g fat, 45 cals
Oil & Vinegar: 14g fat, 140 cals
Souplantation Blue Chesse: 14g fat, 140 cals
Wegmans Herb Vinaigrette: 9g fat, 110 cals
Wish-bone Western Creamy French: 11g fat, 130 cals
Wish-bone Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette: 6g fat, 70 cals

Fit's Tips: Instead of flooding your salad with dressing, try to use less or thin it with water. When dining out, ask for the dressing on the side. Or you could try tossing out the dressing entirely and add flavor by squeezing fresh lemon juice onto your greens.

I love having a full plate of salad fixin's with only balsamic. I use Trader Giottos (I love how they do that!) and the flavor is just great!!

The best low calorie salad dressing is made in Birmingham, Al. It is called Aunt Kay's salad dressing and only has 7 calories per 2 Tbsp. or 58 calories in the whole bottle. it is a tomatoe based dressing and has some garlic flavor too. It really is the best dressing I have had hands down.

I love ranch. I also like the new red wine spritzer one.

I have become addicted to salad spritzers (Balsamic Breeze) and it is only a calorie a spray or some such nonsense. Also salsa instead of dressing with some lemon. Then on special occassions I splurge with the blue cheese or ranch.

Thanks for the breakdown fit! I always stay away from the creamy dressings, mostly just oil and vinegar or anything balsamic.
