How to Make Low Fat Low Carb Salad Dressings

Watching your weight does not mean you have to forego salad dressings altogether; who wants to nibble on a dry piece of lettuce? What dieting does mean is that you have to be clever and find low fat salad dressing recipes which taste as good as the fat-laden ones you used to enjoy and are easy to prepare yourself. That way you will find it easy to stick to your healthy eating plan.

The following low fat salad dressing recipe contains fat-free mayonnaise, although you could use low-fat Miracle Whip if you want to, as well as flavorful ingredients like mustard, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and more. If you want to use 3/4 cup of blue cheese instead of the blue cheese and cream cheese, you can do so. That would be fine for a low carb diet but slightly less favorable for a low fat one. You can cover this and refrigerate it for up to a couple of days, stirring it well before using.

This would also be a good salad dressing for someone with Type II diabetes. If so, check the packages to ensure the ingredients are sugar-free, because some fat-free or reduced-fat ingredients have sugar to make up for the lack of fat, and that is worse for a diabetic than having the full-fat kind. Think about it – you are only going to have 2 tablespoons of dressing max with your salad anyway, so make a tasty dressing and your salad will have an incredible flavor.

Even if you are dieting and trying to cut back on fat and carbs, you can still make a delicious homemade salad dressing. Take this one, for example, which combines rich, creamy ingredients like blue cheese, mayonnaise, cream cheese and yogurt (fat-free varieties if you want) with garlic, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and perhaps some hot sauce too, for flavor, and you will love how the dressing turns out. Our low-carb, low-fat dressing recipe makes enough for 10 salads, but consider making the full amount even if there are less of you, because it keeps for several days, covered, in the refrigerator, and can be spooned over anything from a crunchy salad to a baked potato. You can also enjoy it as a dip with crackers or crudités.
