I know it doesnt say it on the diet, but salad is blan without anything, if any, use fat free and maybe a cap full.... that way its just enough for taste but your not over doing it.

Thanks for your advise, Kriss. I did just that-- only used tiny bit of Paul Newman's low fat.

I do the old V&O (vinegar & oil) without the oil bit. For the past year when I go to a restaurant I've been asking for V&O and then just using the V.

Although I haven't made it yet....Have you seen those packets of Italian dressing that you fill water to the line, oil to the line, vinegar to the line and then add the packet....shake. It also gives the measurements in case you don't have the jar with the lines. Well....they had a package labeled fat free and I checked it out. The directions have you put more water in for the oil (replacing). I'm going to make a batch up for my next trip down CSD lane.

I dress my salads with balsamic vinegar and a small amount of my favorite salad dressing (currently Jalapeno Ranch). Fat free or calorie-free dressing would probably be a better choice.

Prepared salad dressing is not on the plan and for maximum weight loss should be avoided. I feel that the tiny cheat of a teaspoon of salad dressing is worth it for the difference it makes in the edibility of the salad.

I think this is one of those areas where each of us has to make our own choice.

FF dressings can be made with different flavored vinegars, miso, mustard, blended vegetables, etc. I prefer making my own FF dressings when I do a strict CSD. I play with low fat dressings during more lenient weeks. As much as I love veggies, I can't eat a dry salad, I commend those who can.

Thanks for all your advise. We were going out to eat--and I knew I could have a salad --but had to have a tiny bit of low fat dressing for a bit of flavor. Lost 3 1/2 lbs after first three days--so dressing must have been fine! :-)

You use the phrase "low-fat" alot when describing the dressing you are going to use. Like Aerial, Kriss, beaded_star and myself have said, fat free or calorie free are the best choices.
