In the northern hemisphere we’re gearing up for the heat of the summer, and that means delicious summertime salads. Don’t spoil the nutritional value of all those beautiful veggies in a bowl with fat laden salad dressings. Instead, take a few minutes and create your own fat-free/low-fat dressings. Say good-bye to unhealthy commercial salad dressings forever!
#1 Fat Free Asian Salad Dressing
The garlic, fresh ginger, vinegar, and soy sauce give this dressing lots of flavor and a very nice tang. A little bit goes a long way.
#2 Low Fat Yogurt Dressing
All you need is two minutes to whip up this great tasting low fat alternative to mayonnaise. Delicious on salads, coleslaw, or your favorite sandwich.
#3 Salad Dressing with a Kick Recipe
If you like a little omph in your salad dressing, this is the one for you. The horseradish, chili sauce, and Worcestershire will give your taste buds a wake- up call.
#4 Makeover Spinach Salad Dressing
This is a fab makeover of the traditionally high fat dressing that usually finds its way onto an otherwise healthy spinach salad. Contains less than half of the calories and fat of the original dressing. Also great on chicken, and in coleslaw.
#5 Zingy fat-free dressing
This fat-free dressing, from Chef Jamie Oliver, gives you just the zing you need to dress up what could otherwise be a boring salad. The English mustard and fresh red chilies complement each other perfectly!
#6 Balsamic-Port Drizzle
If you’re looking for a salad dressing to impress company, this is it! The addition of the ruby-red port gives makes this dressing ideal for drizzling over dark greens topped with fresh fruit, golden raisins or snipped dried apricots, toasted nuts, and crumbled goat cheese.
#7 Carrot-Ginger Vinaigrette
This yummy dressing will have you coming back for more. Along with the great taste, the carrots give you a healthy dose of Vitamin A, and it’s gluten free! Toss it with greens, or use in an Asian stir-fry.
#8 Oil-Free Tomato-Basil Salad Dressing
This tasty dressing isn’t just low-fat it’s no-fat! The sun dried tomatoes and fresh basil work together to give a unique, fresh flavor. A great way to use those fresh summer tomatoes, and sure to become an instant hit.
#9 Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing
I love blue cheese by itself, and when it’s in a salad dressing I cannot resist. Even when you make it with the low-fat dairy products used in this recipe the dressing is still rich and delicious. For a fantastic flavor use the tangiest blue cheese you can find.
#10 Fat Free Vegan Goddess Dressing
This recipe is a remake of Annie’s popular Green Goddess dressing. Silken tofu is used to get that creamy texture, which slashes the fat and adds protein.
#11 Grapefruit Vinaigrette
There is nothing like citrus to make a salad pop. You’ll love this easy to make variation of the classic vinaigrette.
