Salad dressings can turn a mundane bowl of lettuce into a flavorful dish. But a drizzle of some dressings can load down a salad with extra fat and sodium. So how do you find a dressing that's tasty and nutritious? Diabetic Living's staff took on the challenge to taste and rate any dressing that met our nutritional requirements (below). More than 75 people, including PWDs, tasted the dressings in a series of blind taste panels. The top dressings were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.
Every dressing tested had to meet these health requirements per 2-tablespoon serving:
-- 100 calories or less
-- 7 g total fat or less
-- 2 g saturated fat or less
-- 0 g trans fat
-- 10 g carb or less
-- 350 mg sodium or less
