How to make healthy salad dressing? Any recipes? from Tania Kharkevich
Good day! My question is connected with salads – a favorite dish among those, who are on a diet or want to lose weight. Recently I’ve read an article about healthy salad recipes for weight loss. Many forget that the salad must be healthy and if you eat an enormous pile of lettuce – you won’t lose weight. I want to replace my salad dressings with healthy one because it will be better for me as salads will be tastier.
- Are there any recipes of salad dressings for weight loss that won’t harm my body? What can you recommend for me?
I like to experiment and add different dressings not only to salads but to meat and fish too. I want to try new things and combine different tastes. For example, sweet and salty, sour and tart. Combine different spices. I also like to invent different sauces. But it is not always tasty.
Therefore I want your advice. Who tried some delicious dressings and sauces? Looking forward to reading your answers. Thank you very much!

Hello, Lorry! I remember when I learned how to make some decent healthy and tasty dressings I felt like I actually love cooking. I would like to share my favorite creamy cilantro-avocado dressing recipe. Its piquant taste goes wonderfully together lettuce, tomatoes and beans salad. You may add some roasted nuts on top. The dressing is appropriate for gluten-free, low-sodium, low-carb or vegetarian diets. It is also diabetic friendly.
You need a half avocado, 45 grams of fresh cilantro, 175 ml of Greek yogurt, 2 chopped scallions, a clove of garlic, a tablespoon of lime juice, half teaspoon of sugar, half teaspoon of sea salt. The preparation takes only 10 minutes. Blend all the ingredients until smooth. I keep it in the fridge up to 3 days, it`s very convenient. Dishes taste like some high cuisine and that`s so simple to make! And what is most important – healthy! Good luck, Lorry!
How about roasted garlic dressing? It makes any salad rich in taste and the garlic flavor here is pleasant but not dangerous as you may worry. It is no doubt healthy, you may use it when either on a gluten-free or vegetarian diet, as well as on low sodium or low-carb nutrition plan. It is healthy for your heart. Enough on motivation?

You will need a middle-sized head of garlic, 4 tablespoons of high quality olive oil, a tablespoon of lime juice, 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, sea salt and peppers to your taste. Now time to bake the garlic (in a piece of foil) mixed with half of olive oil and spices. 40 minutes in 200 C oven is usually enough. Then it is mixed with the rest of the oil, lime juice and vinegar and blended until smooth. This amount is enough for 4 servings. Tastes amazing! Bon appetite!
