    Most salad dressings are full of calories and other unhealthy ingredients. What is your favorite HEALTHY salad dressing? (low cal, low fat, organic etc.) Why you might choose low cal over low fat or organic over low cal etc.

    Extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, some Maille mustard à l'ancienne (with the little mustard seeds still in it), a little salt, a little pepper. Whip up a new batch every time you make a salad.

    Girard's Rasberry fat free dressing is one of my fairly healthy favorites.

    Fresh lemon juice - it doesn't sound that good but it is. This is what vegitarian body builder Bill Pearl suggested. You'd think it needs salt but it doesn't. Also, I think my stomach likes it, which makes sense, since I've read that fresh lemon can act as a digestive cleanser.

    I found this at my local publix http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/dressings.html , zero calorie dressing, i have tried the Balsamic Vinaigrette, it tasted pretty good, just found out that they make a caesar or italian which I would prefer since I just found the website because i didn't see those in the store

    extra virgin olive oil, dark apple cider vinegar (organic with the mother culture), herbs, pepper. Good for all salads and pasta dishes. Increases metabolism, adds in natural digestion for elimination of fats.

    just plain tamari soy sauce tastes wonderful, instead of salt and oil

    I don't know if honey mustard is healthy, but I obsess over it.

    Olive oil (or your favourite oil) and balsamic vinegar. You don't need anything more than that... and you don't even have to mix it. Just pour it on and enjoy! icon_smile.gif
