Good-Tasting, Lower-Calorie Salad Dressings

Published:  06/02/2016

Salads can provide a variety of important vitamins, minerals and fiber. But not all salads are healthy. What goes on top of the salad can ruin how healthy it is. Some salad dresings are often high in calories, fat, unhealhty saturated fat and sodium. A small 2-tablespoon portion of Ranch dressing can add 150 calories and more than 15 grams of fat. And most people use way more dressing than that. 

If you want to eat a healthier plant-based diet or want to add salads to your diet to lose weight, use a reduced fat or reduced calorie salad dressing. 

I've done the tasting so you don't have to! Here are my favorite bottled salad dressings.
