Ever wonder how many calories your salad dressing has?  If you haven’t checked lately, you might be surprised.  Here you are eating all your veggies, thinking and feeling you are doing something right for your body.  Then, you’re shocked to see your favorite salad dressing has an obscene amount of calories.

Well, the other night I decided to pick up dinner from Zaxbys.  I chose their “Black and Blue Chicken Salad” with grilled chicken.  It came with a pouch of Mediterranean Salad Dressing.  One look at the salad dressing’s nutritional panel revealed 140 calories per package, which amounts to 3 tablespoons.  Instead, I opened my refrigerator and found a bottle of Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber dressing.  Parkesdale’s Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber dressing has only 20 calories per tablespoon, yet it is full-flavored without the “fake food” taste.  As the name implies, the Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber is creamy with lots of flavor and a hint of dill.

Did you know Parkesdale offers over 15 different salad dressings?  Other favorite low calorie dressings include:  Vidalia Onion Summer Tomato, Balsamic Herb Vinaigrette, and Vidalia Sweet Pepper Vinaigrette.  What’s your favorite salad dressing?

    I was down in February from Michigan and LOVE the Vidalia Onion & Summer Tomato Dressing! And only 40 calories for 2 Tbsp. Great on meat AND salads!
