WHAT’S THE HEALTHIEST SALAD DRESSING?
The one that makes you eat salad. Vinaigrette is a smart light option; balsamic has about 335 kilojoules per 2 Tbsp (a typical creamy dressing has 540), and vinaigrettes made with olive oil give you heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Crave creamy? Try the Creamy Sour Cream & Chives Dressing from Woolworths (R28). It packs fewer kilojoules than most other creamy dressings, but still has plenty of flavour.
MAKE YOUR OWN 3:1 vinegar to oil + dab of mustard to help it emulsify.
