No salad is complete without the dressing and frankly, I donít know anyone whoíll eat a salad without it. In fact, when it comes to applying dressing, people mostly go into extremes. This is perfectly fine if youíre not overly concerned with health or weight, but if you want to trim down on those fats, you need to be choosy on what you put on your salad.
Thereís no need to worry though since the choice for salad dressings is vast. Just take a look at any salad section of a grocery store and youíll find lots of them adorned with their brands. Each brand will span into different flavors too and itís quite confusing on what to choose to perfectly complement your meal. Itís easy to say that the sky is the limit, unless if youíre planning to prepare a specific type of salad, because sometimes a certain salad type can only go with a specific flavor of dressing too.
For instance, if youíre going for some Caesar salad, you wouldnít think of any other dressing than the Caesar style. Thatís quite obvious, just like partnering a Cobb salad with some tasty Green Goddess dressing. Bottom line is that sometimes, in order for you to recreate that fancy restaurant taste for your salad, you just have to follow the norm of using its partner salad dressing because most of the time, itís better that way.
I canít blame you for being creative too and in fact, I highly suggest experimenting with your dressing decisions. With all the salad dressing choices in the grocery, you just have to trust your gut and your taste buds on what you think will do the trick. You may make mistakes in choosing, but the rewards are definitely greater when you find a combination that youíll always enjoy.
Salads are originally meant to be a healthy alternative meal. When weíre talking about dressings though, most of the time, health is compromised. You have to admit, youíll rather want to smother your whole salad with some tasty dressing than just putting in a small amount. Itís still a fact that in eating, we would mind the taste more than the health factor.
Read the label Ė this same rule applies when choosing a healthy dressing. Your recipe for salad should consist of correct measurements too if you want to monitor calorie intake. About 2 tablespoons of dressing will do, really. Thatís already 11 grams of fat, but it can be worse off if you donít measure.
You can also search for healthier salad dressings in the grocery like those low fat or low calorie ones aligned with the regular ones on the same isle. These alternatives are very famous for health conscious individuals. The taste of these products is nearly the same and the price doesnít really vary much, making them worth the difference for your health and weight efforts.
Of course, for the ultimate experiment, why not try making your own version of your favorite dressing at home? Olive or canola oil can be the building block of a wonderful home-made dressing. Put in some vinegar, add some lemon, pepper and other spices to taste, and amaze yourself with your own salad dressing creation.
