Low fat salad dressing that tastes GOOD



Recommended Posts

Ugh. Trying to find a Salad Dressing that actually tastes good. I normally have Thousand Island or Honey Mustard but I haven’t found any low carb, low sugar, low fat dressings. Any recommendations?

It's hard to find, but OPA! Greek Yogurt dressing is amazing. They have a blue cheese, ranch and a feta dill. It is usually in the produce aisle with the refrigerated dressings instead of on the grocery shelves.

I actually had their Cesar tonight. It sucked. I couldn’t finish my salad. 😩

i think i may have to learn to love vinaigrettes.

It must be really difficult to adjust your salad dressings to savory if you are used to and prefer sweet ones! I'm not sure how interested you are in making your own honey mustard dressing but a low fat one is super easy. I just eyeball it but approximate measurements are:

1/4 c greek yogurt + 2T dijon mustard + 2T honey, add black pepper or cayenne to taste, thin with lemon juice if too thick

this has a decent amount of sugar from the honey so if you want it to be low carb you'll have to swap out that luscious honey for an alternate sweetener or a sugar free honey substitute like Nature's Hollow or Pyure

I'm sure you could find a thousand island dressing recipe if you have time to get experimental in the kitchen. It's not something I've tried before.

I know someone who uses Italian in a do-it-yourself packet with rice vinegar. I'm not sure how friendly vinegar of any kind is to a recent post-op.

Most of your stats are missing, so I don't know when you had your surgery.

It's a dip, but I'm sure you could use it as a dressing too, Opadippity Chipotle Ranch. I am also obsessed with Ken's Steakhouse Light Caesar.

I have found if I try to go too "light", like the Skinny Girl dressings or Walden Farms, the fake taste is such a turn off I end up not wanting to have it again, and end up throwing the bottle away.

I add dressing mixes into Greek yogurt (fage 0%). Hidden valley ranch powder... or you could add in mustard and Splenda.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
