Default Salad Dressing

Hello anyone, ok, I'm preparing a steak, and with it I want a salad.
Of course I need salad dressing as well.

I want it creamy and rich, but without adding all of the fat, so I
simply use a mixture of half mayonnaise and half greek yogurt. The
greek yogurt is a healthy alternative to using all mayonnaise as there
is less cholesterol.

How are your salad dressings?

I make variations on a typical vinaigrette but then I blitz it to
emulsify and that's my "creamy" dressing.

Be wary of Greek yogurt's fat content. In just 7 ounces, Fage's full-fat Greek yogurt packs 16 grams of saturated fat--or 80 percent of your total daily allowance if you're on a 2,000-calorie diet. (That's more than in three Snickers bars.) Dannon's regular full-fat yogurt has 5 grams of saturated fat in an 8-ounce serving. Saturated fat raises total and "bad" LDL cholesterol levels, increasing the risk for heart disease. Read nutrition labels carefully. If you're going Greek, stick to low-fat and fat-free versions.

If you want rich and creamy without the fat you should consider Ranch
dressing. It is made with buttermilk, which is low fat.

When I eat salad, which isn't often, I use reg Italian mostly, sometimes 1000 island, which reminds of me of the phrase pardon me 1000 times.

Folks who worry about dietary cholesterol are pretty much clueless.

Be wary of Greek yogurt's fat content. In just 7 ounces, Fage's full-fat Greek yogurt packs 16 grams of saturated fat--or 80 percent of your total daily allowance if you're on a 2,000-calorie diet. (That's more than in three Snickers bars.) Dannon's regular full-fat yogurt has 5 grams of saturated fat in an 8-ounce serving. Saturated fat raises total and "bad" LDL cholesterol levels, increasing the risk for heart disease. Read nutrition labels carefully. If you're going Greek, stick to low-fat and fat-free versions.


More worrisome is the high omega-6 content of the "mayonnaise" he's using,
which is likely made with soy oil. If the OP is going to go through the
process of mixing up a concoction, why not make homemade salad dressing with
high oleic, low polyunsaturate oil?

And Joan, lumping all saturated fatty acids into this category, "saturated fat,"
is nonsense. Many saturated fatty acids are quite healthful, and some raise HDL
levels. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lauric_...nal_properties

People THINK they understand dietary fats, and they are continually blowing out
their asses about them.

And the fat in it is mostly high omega 6, from the cheap-ass soy oil the
manufacturers use to save a few pennies a bottle. Dave is clueless about

I love salad but not dressing. I did once get some with balsamic
vinaigrette on it and it wasn't bad but I would have preferred it not to be
on there. Only reason I didn't send it back was that it would have taken
next to forever to right it. It was at a little place in Alameda, CA that
mainly did catering. I think the place had been some sort of fast food
place back when it had been Navy housing. I just happened upon the place.
It was in an area where the general public wouldn't necessarily go or even
realize that they could go. The owner opened the place for lunch. He had
one or two specials each day plus some salads and paninis. I needed to get
back home and I wasn't particularly hungry so I tried it and it was just
okay.

I might put lemon juice on my salad or if it has Mexican type components, I
might put salsa. I will often put salt, pepper and nuts. But never
dressing. Not on green salads anyway. I do make a pasta salad with an
Italian type dressing.

That is highly controversial information and not everyone needs to limit
their fat intake. I am opposed to the low fat and fat free dairy products.
In many cases they just add sugar or other forms of carbs to make up for
what they are lacking. Better to eat the real thing. I do buy low fat milk
but then milk is something we don't use a lot of at all. A small carton
usually goes bad before it's all used up.

I have a pasta salad recipe that I got back in the 1970's that calls for
Wishbone Italian dressing. The person who gave me the recipe told me to
make sure only to buy that brand as no other tasted as good.

I don't know what Wishbone put in their dressing in those days but it
certainly isn't what is put now. I first noticed the difference just by
sight. The dressing looked different. And it was! Soybean and Canola
Oils. Yuck!

John doesn't need anal lubricant because he can't find any little girls
who are willing to let him sodomize them.

I know you use "the cheapest vegetable oil" (blended with petroleum
jelly) as a masturbation lubricant, but you actually EAT that shit?

The ranch dressing I make is buttermilk with smashed garlic,
minced herbs, and salt and pepper. The Joy of Cooking recipe,
more or less, but without adding mayonnaise or sour cream.

The buttermilk I buy is 9 grams of fat per cup, or a little more
than 1 gram for the 2 tablespoons I typically use. Not too
shabby.

The thinner the dressing, the better the coverage on the salad.

I prefer vinaigrette, generally, but ranch is nice for a change
once in a while.
