It’s no secret that Salads make a healthy foundation for any diet — but it’s all too easy to ruin their nutritional benefits by drizzling on the wrong salad dressing. At the same time, to keep you in love with lettuce, you want choices that keep your taste buds satisfied and turn every salad experience into a delicious adventure.
Often, store-bought dressings have lots of trans fats (the “bad” fats), sugars, artificial ingredients, and a surprising number of calories. As for your non-fat options — those tends to be loaded with sugar to give it some flavor and still the bottle often tastes better than the salad dressing itself 😉
So, what’s a plant based, health-conscious, person to do? Start from scratch! Homemade salad dressings give us the flexibility to use fresh, wholesome, natural ingredients and make healthy substitutions where needed.
Today we are featuring 4 Low Fat Salad Dressings from Delish Knowledge.
