4 Low Fat Salad Dressings | Weight Loss Recipes | Joanna Soh

one to lose weight well have a huge bowl

of salad most of us think that by having

salad on a daily basis it can help with

weight loss that is true a huge bowl of

salad contains all the nutrients

vitamins and minerals that your body

needs plus it is very hard to overeat

but what you choose to dress your salad

with can be a killer it can turn a

really healthy meal into a calorie bomb

I'm talking about store-bought salad

dressings which are very high in fat

salt sugar and even additives each

tablespoon has about 70 to 100 calories

this a sneaky calories and they are

probably ruining your diet without you

even realizing it you must be thinking

my salad must be really tasteless and

boring hey make your own salad dressings

instead they are cheap easy to make

healthy and you can control what you put

in it so here are four of my favorite

low-fat salad dressings for a lighter

version always up for vinaigrette based

dressing so my first recipe is the spicy

lime vinaigrette dressing what you'll

need are three tablespoons of lemon

juice three tablespoons of rice wine

vinegar one tablespoon of light soy

sauce half a tablespoon of sesame oil

half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive

oil half a tablespoon of maple syrup one

garlic clove minced and half a teaspoon

of dried chili flakes mix all the

ingredients in a bowl and stir until

well combined

each tablespoon has about 23 calories

drizzle a couple of tablespoons onto

your salad and serve do you know that

one tablespoon of ranch dressing has

about 73 calories the recipe usually

calls for mayonnaise sour cream and

buttermilk for healthy twist we're going

to replace the cream with silken tofu

don't worry guys you will barely taste

the tofu this recipe has under 10

calories per tablespoon it is still

thick creamy and packed with herbs and

spices what you'll need are one cup

of silken tofu 1 tablespoon of lemon

juice quarter teaspoon of garlic powder

quarter teaspoon of dried chives quarter

teaspoon of dried mixed herbs quarter

teaspoon of cayenne pepper and salt and

pepper to taste simply blend the silken

tofu in a blender until smooth then mix

all the ingredients in a bowl and stir

until well combined

well if tofu is not your thing then just

replace it with yogurt who loves as it

key also known as Greek cucumber yogurt

here's a really simple recipe you can

follow so what I've used are half a cup

of yogurt 1/2 a cup of cucumber finely

grated cut a cup of mint leaves finely

chopped 2 teaspoons of lemon juice 1

garlic clove minced and a pinch of salt

and pepper again simply mix all the

ingredients in a bowl you can choose to

chill in the fridge before serving each

quarter cup only has about 28 calories

it's refreshing creamy and zingy I like

to dip it with some chopped up

vegetables such as cucumbers carrots and

even celery or you can choose to serve

it with some bread and even grilled meat

if you love Tomatoes try this final

recipe to mutter vinaigrette what you'll

need are have a can of diced tomatoes

cut a cup of shallots diced 1 garlic

clove minced one-and-a-half tablespoons

of apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons of

extra-virgin olive oil a pinch of

cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt and


in a bowl add all the ingredients mix

well and serve each tablespoon has about

21 calories this flavorful tomato

vinaigrette is not only great with salad

it is also delicious with roasted

vegetables grilled meat seafood or serve

it as a dip the next time you enjoy a

bowl of salad just be really aware of

the dressing choose to serve it on the

side and enjoy in small quantities or
