Hungry Girl 'The Greens Scene'

Get salad savvy in just seconds..... When buying dressing at the market, always read labels very carefully. Even those labeled 'light' or 'reduced-fat' can contain tons of fat and calories. At a restaurant? Play it safe and go with a drizzle of olive oil (for those healthy fats) and some vinegar or a squirt of lemon. You can also carry low-cal dressing packets in your purse, or request some alternative. There are many alternatives to fatty dressings that will save calories and fat, but still pack a flavorful punch. Do your waist a favor and reach for salsa, soy sauce, balsamic or red wine vinegar, lemon juice or Dijon mustard. Always dip, never pour dressing directly on your salad. You'll use way less and save calories and fat. Courtesy of the Hungry Girl Book
