salad dressing

Postby linda » Thu Nov 17, 2005 4:10 pm

I was just wondering is there much advantage over the fat free french salad dressing over the regular dressing? Or is it all an advertising gimmick. Also icypoles, i thought they might be okay for when i have a sugar craving, or not?

Hi Linda,

All I use on my salads is a little olive oil, a squeeze of lime juice and some salad herbs (Masterfoods). Sometimes for something different I might use a little Balsamic Vinegar.

Instead of an Icypole have a look in your supermarket (where the jellies are) and there are natural Ice blocks to put in the freezer. They are made with real fruit juce or you can make your own. :D

I've put a recipe for my fave salad dressing in the recipes section. I prefer to make my own dressings than buy them. Bought ones have far too much oil and gums and preservatives for my liking. I prefer a nice, simple vinigarette - just plain vinegar even!

As far as icypoles, mum used to have these cool icypole maker thingumies that you could fill with anything - fruit juice, water, fruit pulp, yoghurt and put in the freezer. Also, have you tried frozen bananas? stick a wooden skewer up a peeled banana and place in freezer. Yummy!

Hi Linda, I think if you're a mad keen salad eater then the olive oil in a normal salad dressing should be fine so long as you don't exceed using the required 3 teaspoons of fat needed to keep your dieting body healthy.

Also the same with icy poles. I personally don't believe that a little dot of cane sugar every now and again can do much harm.
