    Do you use salad dressing on your salad? Do you eat it plain and raw?
    What is your regular favourite to put on your greens?

    Also- what do you think the healthier alternative would be to your favourite/ if there is one, and would you switch over in hopes of cutting salt/calories?


    My favourite is a zesty italian vinaigrette (vinegarette).
    I like the combination of spice and tang in my salad~ it's best with red onion, tomato and cheddar cheese!

    An alternative I could use would probably be a plain mixture of oil and vinegar.
    I find it too boring most of the time since my salad mixes are usually fairly mild.
    I like a pop of flavour!
    My salt intake levels are fairly low, so sticking with my usual choice is still okay for me.

    I love various vinagrettes. Raspberry Vinagrette is one of my favorites. I've also had this sesame ginger one and it was awesome.

    Balsamic vinnagrette is my absolute favorite!! :D

    I use this one that's in a spray bottle and one calorie per spray...so I'm not really sure how I could cut back on calories any more than that! xD Unless I wanted to have a plain salad...and those are kinda boring. :laugh:

    olive oil, salt+pepper, lemon juice + a little cayenne off/on

    or olive oil, salt, pepper, mixed herbs, honey, vinegar/lemon juice. if i've added onions/cucumber/lettuce i use the first one.

    i got a bottle of thousand island recently- i haven't had a prepared salad dressing in ages! and i remember i used to like that loads. i'm looking forward to opening it if i ever do..i'd forgotten about it.

    i don't like ceasar salad dressing or the creamy/cheese types, it's okay once in a while, sparingly but it's too heavy and completely drowns the taste of the vegetables.

    this is a great thread btw :D

    These are my favorites too. Also lime juice instead of lemon. And lots of garlic.

    My favorite way to make ranch more tasty and healthy is to mix a package of ranch seasoning with a tub of fat free plain yogurt. You can also use it to dip chips in! :D

    I generally just squeeze a lemon over salad. Almost no calories and it still adds some flavor. :)
    Olive oil and balsamic is my favorite though.

    Me and salad have the same relationship as Superman and Kryptonite.

    Ready-made, cold, rotten-looking, over-the-counter green salad - delicious!
