I am in need of a change for my salad dressing and love vinegrettes. I am just wondering what salad dressing everyone else uses or does anyone make their own?.

Let me also mention I burn everything so I am not a great cook, so the receipes have to be easy.

At one time a friend showed me how to make a strawberry vinegrette however since we can't have strawberries on the plan I cant make this one...

Your question was: What salad dressing do you use during Medifast?.

I am a vinaigrette girl myself but I was feeling wild one day and picked up some Newman's Own Lighten Up low-fat Sesame Ginger. It's a bit sweet, a bit salty and a refreshing change to my balsalmic routine!..

Comment #1

I recently found a champagne vinaigrette that I adore and that meets the Medifast criteria...

Comment #2

I usually use Wish Bone Balsamic Breeze Vinaigrette spritzer, but when I need something with a WOW factor Newman's Own Lighten Up Light Lime Vinaigrette Dressing is perfect for that...

Comment #3

I never use any bought dressings since on Medifast. I just take Vinegar,Splenda and water all equal parts and mix. It makes a sweet sour dressing. Linda..

Comment #4

Trader Joe's has Champagne pear vinaigrette with gorgonzola which is absolutely wonderful and very affordable. I ran the numbers by Medifast nutritionist & was told that I could use as much as 4 tbsp and still be on plan. 4 tbsp is a lot; I usually use 2. I quite often pack it in a small container and take with me while dining out...

This wishbone balsamic vinergarette ROCKS OUT LOUD, and has hardly any calories or carbs, which allows me to have LC cheese as my healthy fat..

Comment #6

My grocery carries the entire line of Walden Sugar Free Dressings - so far I like the Balsamic Vinagrette and the Russian...

Comment #7

I just bought this one, glad it's good!.

Most of the time I just make my own Greek salad - olive oil, white wine vinegar (and then water for more volume if needed) with oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper - wisk away and pour over salad of lettuce, tomato, and cucumbers. It's very tasty!..

OMG!! The best salad dressings I have ever had, on or off of a diet is GALEO"S! They only have 4 different flavors, Wasabi Ginger, Miso Toasted Sesame Seed, (Which is buy far the best!!) A ceaser, and a dijonaise. They are extremely lo-fat Between 1-2 gr of fat for 2 tbsp and just a smidge of carbs, like less that 1. I can't believe how good they are. You can only get them at a select few stores. To find a store, or order it on line go to WWW.Galeo' YOu will not regret it. I believe the prices on line is 4.49 a bottle, but 5.99 at Whole Foods Store...

Bolthouse Farms dressings. They are made with yogurt. Love the Blue Cheese and the Caesar Parmesan...

Comment #10

I have tried 3 flavors of walden farms dressing Ranch , Cesear, and thousand islandYeshh ....Sorry but I think they are horribleI'd rather do without.

Now the vingarettes may be better.But I have and like the Newmans Vingarettes and other lighten up dressings ...

Comment #11

I like the Walden Farms Bleu Cheese dressing. It did take a little getting used to at first but I would rather have better things than salad dressing for my fat...

Comment #12

Thank you every for such great recommendations. I have bought tons of various WF products and one thing I cannot get into is the salad dressings. I keep telling myself if I could get into them they would be great to use long term, save me on calories, fat, etc. But I know how taste buds change so I will try again and never give up.

I will have to try some of the vinegrettes however those sounds great and really are more up my alley. Thank you agian!..

Comment #13

I can COMPLETELY agree with this statement. I actually buy the Sesame one by the gallon and just refill my bottle!..

Comment #14

I really like the Newman's Own Light Caesar and balsamic vinagerette..

On days when I can't have a fat, because of my lean selection I just use some red wine vinegar and that is quite good too...

Comment #15

Thanks for this! I'm getting bored with EVOO & balsamic every day. Do you use equal parts oil and vinegar?..

Comment #16

Now I am regretting buying the Walden's dressing's online. I haven't tried them yet but not feeling a good vibe from the responses I see but I guess I will find out in a few days...

Comment #17

Galeo's. Love the stuff, especially the original Miso sesame flavor...

Comment #18

Galeo's seems to be a favorite among MF's. I will have to try that one after the holidays.

Happy Holidays to everyone!..

Comment #19

I actually buy my grocerys generic brand of Italian Fat free dressing. Has the lowest cal-carb-fat to any of the branded dressings PLUS tastes great! so remember to check out the generics!..

Comment #20

I use Farmer Boy's Greek Dressing. It is very low calorie and has a nice zip.

I also make my own that is so good..

Here's my recipe:.

1/2 cup white vinegar.

1/2 cup light extra virgin olive oil.

1 tsp. worcestershire sauce.

5 crushed garlic cloves.

1/2 tsp. kosher salt.

1 tsp. oregano.


Mash crushed garlic into kosher salt until it forms a paste, and mix all ingredients in shaker. I also usually put 1/4 tsp. of lemon juice, but I skip that on MF. If you have ever had Columbia Restaurants 1905 salad this is the copy cat recipe for their dressing...

Comment #21

Bought Newmans Own light Balsamic Viniagrette and Bolthouse Yogurt Ranch. Ate the Balsamic today. Very good actually...

Comment #22

Bragg's also makes two AMAZING vinaigrettes: Healthy Vinaigrette and Ginger & Sesame. Love them, but I don't eat them everyday. I'm not sure if they meet Nutrisystem criteria, but I had the Healthy Vinaigrette yesterday on my salad and am down .8 this morning, so for my body it can't be too bad..

Okay, I just looked up the guidelines and here they are:.

"Salad dressings should provide approximately 5.

Grams of fat and < 6 grams of carbohydrates per.


So on the Healthy Vinaigrette, it's 9g fat and 3g carb in 2 Tbsp. For the Ginger & Sesame, it's 12g fat and 2g carb for 2 Tbsp. Okay, so on the Healthy, slightly more than 1 Tbsp is equals one healthy fat, and slightly less than one Tbsp equals one healthy fat for the Sesame Ginger..

Gonna have to try the Galleo's. Oh, and I got the Bragg's from my health food store and also from a grocery store...

Comment #23

Trader Joe's Caesar dressing is AMAZING! For 2 TBSP it is only 50 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 1 carb!..

Comment #24

I use unpasteurized, organic, unfiltered AC vinegar and olive oil, with splenda. Yum.


Comment #25

2 tbsp of Walden Farms - any of the calorie free or 20-35 calorie kind, then if it's not enough I add a few sprays of wishbone spritzer.

Usually thousand island or italian.

When I make buffalo chicken salad I use WF sugar free ranch and Frank's red hot..

Comment #26

Salsa! I puree half a bottle of it in my Magic Bullet then keep it in the fridge and use 2 tbsp. of the pureed stuff on my salads...

Comment #27

My favorite is really easy.. Drizzle your healthy fat(s) over your veg (I use sesame oil), then spray with Bragg's Liquid Amino. It's a super easy and healthy Asian style/tasting dressing...
