Salad Dressing

Postby heres2me » May 19th, 2008, 2:07 pm

I am trying to find the right dressing for my salad. I picked up the Walden Farms no cal, no carb, no surgar honey dijon. How much of that can I have on my salad. And, since I haven't tried it yet, is at also "no taste?"

What is everyone else using on salads?

Personally, we tried Walden Farms and summarily tossed it in the trash. We use low carb and low fat dressings (many avaialbe in the supermarkets). The salad spritzers are good also.

I personally go with Hidden Valley Ranch Light which I find to be a good compromise between carbs, calories, and taste. I sometimes use the Walden Farms dressings as marinades for chicken, etc.

I have tried the spritzers (Which are great, and they just came out with a ranch one!) and the light cheese fantastico by Bernstein's, and also I made some of my "own" dressing... Not sure if it was totally ok, but it seemed to work well for me.. I would take 1 TB and put it in my shaker, and add a little fat free half and half, shake REALLY well, and then pour on my salad. I loved the way I still had the taste, but it spread around a little bit more. I was using a Safeway Select brand (Von's in other parts of the country, I believe) it was a basil ranch and it's yummy. I'm a big fan of pesto/basil! ;)

I'm definitely not a fan of Walden Farms, either, although some people swear by their products. I do love the sugar-free balsamic vinaigrette from Maple Grove Farms. It can be a little hard to find, but my local supermarkets all carry it.

It has something like 5 calories per serving, with no fat and no sugar. (There's also a fat-free version that has slightly more calories and carbs but is still well within acceptable range.)

Ohh.. a ranch spritzer, yay! They aren't selling here yet, hopefully soon.
I haven't had a Walden Farms product yet that I liked.


I usually only have salad as an L&G when I have cottage cheese as the lean.. I take a tablespoon or so of the cottage cheese and whiz it with some de-seeded cucumber in the magic bullet.. toss in some chives and dill, salt and pepper and it makes a nice creamy dressing.

Kelly you need to be a chef. You have such a great way to incorporate things in to your lean greens. And probably if you fed it to me I would not even be able to tell the diffrence. I am going to try that dressing.

From one chef to the other.

My newest favorite is Kraft Light Cheese Ranch. I am one that CAN NOT stand light creamy dressings, but I thought I would give this one a try while I was in Texas with Skye and I fell in love with it. As far as fat grams it is on the verge of plan compliant, but only 2 carbs. I had a hard time finding it in Ohio, but I called Kraft and they found a store for me.

I kinda like the Walden Farms. I like the blue cheese, honey mustard, and the Tomato Bacon one. They aren't the originals, but they aren't that bad.

I use the tomato sauce, too. NO on the alfredo, but regular sauce is good.

I have been making my brother ice cube fudgcicles. Pour the WF choc. syrup in an ice cube tray and then drop in a drop of WF caramel or marshamallow and let it freeze. He pops it out and sucks on it like an ice pop. I guess a little stick would work, too. I wanna try it with flavoring in the choc. syrup.
Don't really care as long as everything's better than yesterday was...
