    Ha! I like mine with olive oil, especially if I have tomato on it, and the bliss is mopping off the juices at the bottom of the bowl with chunks of bread.

    If no tomatoes - olive oil with balsamic vinegar or lemon, salt and herbs depending on the salad. I loved pumpkin seed oil instead of olive oil but haven't seen it anywhere in Canada :(

    I use great value light ranch. The calories are acceptable to me.

    I use lemon juice, olive oil, and a little bit of salt and pepper.

    Me too. So good.

    Equal parts maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

    2:1 Rice vinegar, oil with a squirt of mustard and a dollop of honey.

    Both of these recipes you can make in a mason jar or old spice jar, whatever amount you like. They keep on the counter for a few days.

    Fruit :) I love adding some sliced strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Then I make sure each bite has a little bit of fruit and a bunch of lettuce. Sometimes I'll add some pecans.

    The Newman's Own dressings are delicious but once you've had homemade you won't go back. A little olive oil, a little fresh-squeezed lemon, a bit of Dijon. How can you go wrong?

    When I'm really serious about dieting, salsa.

    For little calories i use salsa, Walden Farm dressing, dijon mustard. All these have virtually no calories. Olive oil has 120 caloires per tablespoon. I can use that 120 for something better...

    Renee's Ravin Raspberry vinaigrette is very good. It's only 20 cals per T. We have a local supplier who makes amazing oil free vinaigrettes too. Yummies In a Jar, if you are in Ontario.

    I have about a teaspoon of viniagrette (home-made) on my salad today. I think this one is olive oil, lemon juice, celery salt and a few other herbs.

    Ken's Lite Poppyseed is my go to. I like a lot of othed Ken's dressing but the creamy ones can get calorie heavy. As a bonus I can usually find it on sale.

    I "assemble" my salad ... I put a layer of salad in a bowl, spritz with olive oil or other preferred oil (coconut oil is yummy) then I add the second layer of salad, again spritzing with oil. once sufficiently coated, I splash a little bit of vinegar (I play around with different flavors). Next, I drizzle some honey over the top to cut the acidity and then sprinkle with my favorite herbs and spices. Mix and then eat! With this method, I can change things up according to my mood and cravings.

    Girard's light champagne viniagrette, turns any plain salad into something special ;)

    We recently bought some OPA Greek Yogurt dressing. The blue cheese is good. The Feta/Dill tastes a bit chalky. The jalapeno ranch is my new favorite dressing!

    We also enjoy Kraft Caesar Vinaigrette and Roasted Red Pepper Italian that was mentioned earlier.
