Salad Dressings?

Hey guys,

I was wondering what the healthiest salad dressing (one available at most restaurants) would be? By the term ‘healthiest’, I mean one with the fewest grams of carbs/fat. I have combed the web for this information, but to no avail. Thanks. -Epitome

I like to use olive oil and salsa.

If you are looking for the lowest in carbs and fat. The only choice is Vinegar. Most restaurants will have a good balsamic vinegar. Just ask for it on the side. If you prefer a sweeter taste, ask for a few packets of equal or sweet and low. Flavor your vinegar on the side to your taste. Add salt and pepper to taste. A tablespoon of balsamic vinegar is only 2 grams of carbs. Don’t ask for a vinegarette, since most are sweetened with fructose or the chef will make it with sugar and vinegar. Hope this helps.
