I love salad, IF i have a good dressing. The problem is, I HATE lite dressings. I haven't found one yet that I really enjoy eating. So, I always buy regular dressings. I have made a few lite dressings that I like, but was wondering if there is anyone else who really dislikes lite dressings, but have found one they really like.(storebought)
If I keep working at this, and want it badly enough, I CAN HAVE IT!!

Agreed w/ms cindyshine... balsamic vinegar. Although, I recommend an Italian dressing shaker and I mix it 50/50 w/flax oil and then a packet of Italian dressing mix or I use fresh herbs from my herb garden and pepper. *slurp!* It really is tasty and satisfying and really adds to salad. I also grill a chicken breast w/italian seasoning, add cucumber, feta, sun dried tomatoes, sun flower seeds and red/yellow peppers for a delicious salad! The dressing keeps well in the fridge, too! Very Happy Hope that helps!

LITEHOUSE has a DELICIOUS Salsa Ranch dressing that goes great on a salad, as a dip, on a potato or anything else...

It is considerably low on the points scale if you are on WW.

Also, if you go to their website, they have a whole list of salad ideas and recipes... I think the link was http://www.litehousefoods.com/ It's a very nicely laid out site.

Anyhow ~ ENJOY !
*PEACE*

My father invented a dressing many years ago that I like a lot.

1 part olive oil
3 parts balsamic

1 spoonful of dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of worchestershire

Shake and pour it on - super low cal!
