I just peaked at the link and the recipes look intriguing. I think I may try a few this week. An E salad has not happened since I usually do not like LF or FF dressings. It would be nice to find one I enjoy.
Thanks, ladies. Some good ideas. I think I'll try one of the dressings at the link itsgwen posted. I just love that she called the post, "Fat-Salad Dressings that don't taste like death". Ha ha -- that's certainly what we're looking for!!
Above Rubies reader since August/94! Wife to Steve (June 29/91), Homeschooling Mama to dd (May/94), ds (June/98), dd (Oct/01), dd (Dec/03), dd (Oct/05), ds (Mar/08), ds (Oct/10), and ds (Nov/12)
My husband loves thousand island so I made a homemade FF version using 1 T mayo and low fat cottage cheese, blendered, with some SF catsup I made frm the book. I added some stevia, dill pickle, minced onion, paprika and vinegar. It turned out very nice. Much better than eating a dry salad or lemon juice n vinegar. I need to make it again so I can put the measurements together so I can recreate it again.
I tried the fat free asian salad dressing last night on my salad and it was yum. I ended up not using the rice vinegar because I didnt realize there was added sugar in it. There were 6 carbs of sugar. So, used the red wine vinegar and only used 1 garlic instead of 2. I also added a teaspoon of sesame seeds for more oriental flair. I also added a little gluccie so it was a little thicker. I think I will use the left overs to dip my turkey mini meatloaves in as they need something. Would be good spread on chicken, too.
I used the base of the Hip Trim Honey Mustard but did this: Instead of the 2 tbs mustard or whatever it was, i used maybe 1 tsp of dijon. I added a sprinkle of Italian herb blend, and a bit of parmesan cheese. I added a bit of fresh onion (maybe 1 tbs) and 1 small garlic clove. Instead of 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, I did 2 tbs cider vinegar and 2 tbs lemon juice. Good amount sea salt, good amount pepper, and a scant 1 tsp of truvia.
Whazz all this in your blender and do the glucomannan thingie, as per recipe directions in book. I used EVOO instead of palm oil. It made a really yummy Caesar type dressing. If I'd only had anchovy paste, that would've made it taste really Caesar-y. It was delish.

Hey Gwen, thanks so much for sharing your recipes for the dressing mixes! I made them up yesterday and tried the Greek dressing last night. It was delicious. I will probably keep that one in an S setting, but try the low fat stuff for E on the Ranch.
I was having trouble figuring out a dressing for my E salads. Now I just put Braggs Liquid Aminos on it. Be careful not to put too much on the salad or it will taste too salty. Love it!! I feel like I have finally found a good easy solution

stacylynn: Help! What type of snack do I get when I mix a (green) golden delicious apple with a (1 oz.) slice of cheese? Is this a cross-over?

steffanie3: An E, the cheese is pretty close to your tsp of added fat in an E

stacylynn: Got another one for you: Zone Bar with 210 cal; 7 g fat; 23 carbs (eek!); 3 g fiber; 15 gm sugar and 14 gm protein would fall under what category? Mess up? IMA goof-ball? Oops? Really...how do I categorize this poor choice?
