Dip, don’t pour. If you do want dressing, stick with a light one. Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger and Bolthouse Farms Salsa Ranch ROCK. But don’t just pour the stuff all over your greens. Instead, dip your fork into the dressing. You’ll use way less dressing this way. Even light dressing can add lots of calories if you use too much of it. So DDP: Dip, don’t pour!
Chop, chop! I LOVE chopped salads. All the flavors get evenly dispersed, so there’s less need for dressing. Request your salad chopped when you’re dining out, or DIY at home. There are lots of fancy salad-chopping gadgets, but I find a good set of kitchen shears works best!
Rinse and eat. If you buy premade coleslaw or pasta salad, give it a quick rinse to send fatty calories down the drain. The flavor will have already soaked in, so it’ll still taste great!
