Raise your hands: How many of you have spent far too long in the salad dressing aisle searching for that perfect dressing that will not only be good for you (and not pile too many calories on that healthy salad), but taste great, too?
Canadian brand Renée’s Gourmet has just released five new varieties of their Wellness Dressing, all of which are trans fat free, contain prebiotics and carry the Health Check symbol from the Heart and Stroke Foundation. There are three yogurt-based flavours—Peppercorn Ranch, Cucumber & Dill and Roasted Garlic Caesar—and two viniagrettes, Tuscan Garden and Pomegranate Blueberry with Açaí. All are low in calories—the Roasted Garlic Caesar, for instance, weighs in at 45 calories per 15 mL, and the viniagrettes have only 3 or 5 calories per 15 mL—and best of all, the ingredients label doesn’t read like a chemistry class. Try them on one of our collection of 20 healthy salad recipes, or on your own favourite combo of fresh veggies.
I’m going to keep my eye out for these next time I’m at the grocery store—I’ve been looking for some new flavours to spice up my salads. What about you? Have you tried these? What do you think?
