It's actually not quite as bad as I expected, but my expectations were low. A lot of that crap is made by processing corn into various chemical components and then reassembling it. If I was trying to eat healthy food it's not something I would choose to put into my body.
When I make salad dressing, the ingredients are: cold-pressed organic olive oil, gravenstein cider vinegar, sea salt, cracked pepper, and some combination of garlic, shallots, herbs, mustard seeds, etc. For me it's worth ~100 calories to eat natural foods rather than weird chemical brews. YMMV.

I too have tried some of the Walden Farms products. It's hit and miss. I am with Hoser
They taste chemically. I don't see how they can have NO calories-and what is cellulose gel? ugh A scoop of nonfat greek yogurt that is doctored up with spices can make a nice dressing too.

a vinaigrette with olive oil balsamic and lemon works well and supplies some very good fats that help fatloss

It's really easy to make your own salad dressings. I make up a small batch every couple of days. The fun thing is you can be so creative...no batch is quite the same as the last. It's cheaper, fresher and better for you.
Start with some vinegar and olive oil (and I sometimes omit the oil); add a main flavor, e.g. - low sodium soy sauce; hummus; miso paste or mustard; add an enhancer - herbs, garlic; chillies; hot sauce; dried seaweed; anchovy paste, lemon juice, etc.
I put mine in a small jar with a tight lid - pour it all in - I don't even bother to measure anymore - I eyeball it. Put lid on and give it a good shake.
Yummy! And I make enough for 2 or 3 servings, as I eat a salad most days. If you have to take your lunch with you - keep your dressing seperate from the salald until you are ready to eat.
A year from now you will look back and wish you had started today.
