DRESSED to Perfection

Salad dressing is a major sabotage, but only if you let it!

Drowning a salad in a high-calorie, high-fat dressing can easily turn a healthy dish into a diet disaster. Avoid overdoing it by using no more than 2 tablespoons per serving and stick to the healthier options, see list below.

Low Fat Italian: 22 Calories & 2 grams of fat
Raspberry Vinaigrette: 49 Calories and 3 grams of fat
Low Fat Ranch: 59 Calories 4 grams of fat
Thousand Island: 111 calories 11 grams of fat
Balsamic Vinegar and Live Oil: 133 Calories and 14 grams of fat (this one SHOCKED me!!)
French: 146 Calories and 14 grams of fat
Ranch: 145 Calories and 15 grams of fat
