I am tired of the plain taste of raw veggies, and am praying that I just suddenly looove the taste but in the meantime, can anyone suggest any fat-free low calorie taste ideas to flavor salads?

Have you tried pesto or sun dried tomato pesto? Hummus?

lemon and/or dried fruits are good.

I know this is old but I like to put the juice from hot peppers on my salads it really adds a nice no calorie bite to them.

I like either a bit of pineapple or, for a dressing, I like to mix vanilla yogurt with a bit of honey..YUM

I have been using Pace Picante sauce on my salads lately. Salsa adds a lot of flavor to a salad for only a few calories.

Pomegranate vinaigrette is really good with very little calories.

I concur with the pomegranate. I like it plain, even without the oil.

The Eating Right salad dressings are great! I use them all time, the Ranch took a little getting used to as it tastes a little different, but all are low calorie and low in fat. I think almost all of them are less than 50 calories per serving. They come in a variety of flavors.

Safeway Select Soutwestern Salsa is AWESOME! I use it on my salads, potatos instead of butter, eggs, sandwiches, meats, everything! I use salsa in place of butter, mayonnaise, salad dressing and anything that requires a bit of flavor!

I don't budge on my salad dressings....my fav is Ranch but what I do with it... I pour dressing in small container and dip my fork in it and then onto salad or vegetables - taste you get is the same as your vegetables were covered in dressing.
Cheers,
