Salad dressings are little food bombs full of bad things — sugar, salt and fat. No one on a restricted diet should be using them.
So what can you do to make a salad tastier? Try olive oil and vinegar. I grew up with that mixture on salads, thanks to my Italian roots. I didn’t try a salad dressing until I was eating in a college dorm.
So going back to oil and vinegar is fine with me. The problem is many restaurants and fast food places that offer salads, don’t offer oil and vinegar. So I’ve found a solution. I’ve bought individual packets of olive oil and white vinegar on Amazon.com. I had to buy in bulk, 100 oils and 500 vinegars, but having them always in my pocket or briefcase gives me a bit more freedom to eat out, something I desperately miss.
If you want to be able to get salads again without worrying about the dressings, give this a try.
