Best Light Salad Dressings

by Anne Bennett on June 6, 2017

Google “best light salad dressings,” and you’ll get lots of suggestions, including this taste test from the food network. Time was when low fat bottled dressings were universally horrid, but they’re getting better and better.

Bolthouse Farms Balsamic Vinaigrette rated high on several web sites. Bolthouse also produces creamy Ranch dressings made with yogurt that are lower in fat and calories and are getting rave reviews from Ranch dressing aficionados.

If you’re simply not a fan of any bottled dressings, try this light balsamic vinaigrette from Cooks Illustrated that I often use. It’s thinned with a small amount of water so it’s not as thick as regular dressing made with lots of olive oil. Here’s the trade-off: use a bottled low-fat dressing thickened with guar gum, or this slightly thinner homemade dressing.

And don’t forget its best quality: it’s freshly made…by you!
