Salad Dressing

Dressings can be the downfall of many otherwise healthy salads. Lots of salad dressings pack more than 120 calories and 12 fat grams into just 2 tablespoons - and many people use twice that amount. What is your favorite salad dressing? Mine is Thousand Island. We normally get the regular kind, but since I am trying to shed some pounds I get the 0% fat kind. I also use the Asian dressing sometimes. How about you? If you would like to make your own "Low fat salad dressing", here's a step by step video recipe for you.

The concept of salad dressing varies across cultures. There are many commonly used salad dressings in North America. Traditional dressings in southern Europe are vinaigrettes, while mayonnaise is predominant in eastern European countries and Russia. In Denmark, dressings are often based on crème fraîche. In China, where Western salad is a recent adoption from Western cuisine, the term salad dressing refers to mayonnaise or mayonnaise-based dressings. Many light edible oils are used as salad dressings, including olive oil, corn oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, etc.

I also love thousand island dressing although I just make it at home. I would love to try other salad dressings too but they are way too expensive for my budget. I love to dip fresh veggies especially lettuce and cucumber into a thousand island salad dressing. Thanks for the yummy post. God bless you always.

I am also a fan of thousand dressing and since they now made fat free dressing, I am loving it! Sometimes, you can also set the salad dressing on the side instead of mixing it all in, in the salad and just dip em'. :) Like I said, I love making my own vinaigrette!

My husband loves different kind of dressings that's why we have lots of them, too.
By the way, thanks for responding to my problem, Dhemz. :)
