The Best Low Cal Salad Dressing Recipes

Low calorie salad dressing recipes are handy for anyone who is watching their waistline or wanting to look after their health better. More often than not, a low calorie French salad dressing or another type of low calorie dressing will taste just as yummy as regular dressings which are high in fat and calories, so you might like to experiment with low cal salad dressing recipes to discover for yourself how good they can be.

The following recipe contains yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and dill. The yogurt and mayonnaise work nicely together to give the dressing a creamy flavor and texture without being too high in calories. You can swap the dried dill for two tablespoons of fresh chopped dill if you prefer, although there are lots of people who dislike dill so you might like to leave it out altogether. Depending where you live, there are different varieties of low-fat mayonnaise available so just see what you can get.

Mayonnaise will always contain some fat but there is a big different between the high-fat ones and the healthier kinds. You can also make your own mayonnaise fairly easily but if you are using it as an ingredient (rather than serving it alone) it is better to use the store-bought kind, since the other ingredients will mask the flavor anyway.
