Does anyone oknow of any yummy and healthy salad dressings??

Postby qtpie » Wed Mar 19, 2008 7:54 pm

ok I love salad, I usually make a green salad with lettuce, tomato, carrot, cumbumber, sometimes with celery, and with craft cheese, I wouldn't mind cuttuing out the craft cheese, and for a dressing I usually put mayo on it, but I was wondering if anyone knows how to make a nice healthy dressing to go on the salad

Also I want to make a pasta salad with brown pasta, carrot, celery and corn, does anyone know what I can put on that to make it more tasty.

I am looking for dressings that are yummy and that I can make myself so that I know there are no additives, can anyone help me???

A dressing that i am a big fan of is the krafet free dressing balsamic italian. You don't need much and it tastes strong. i love it. Give it a try. Its sure to be more healthy then mayo.

I don't think balsamic would be nice with pasta salad. But you could give it a try!

for a green salad I usually just use a nice vinegar, or a mix of orange or lemon juice, salt pepper and a dash of oil

For a pasta salad..... hmmm, try a combo of plain low fat yoghurt and low fat mayo?

Vinegar is a really good one! I use that onb most garden salads

Also try lemon juice (great on tabbouleh) and lime juice is great as well

I dislike all the commercial brand ones as they have a very tangy overpowering flavour
