Aside from boosting your veggie and nutrient intake, salads are a great way to slim down. They help to moderate food intake by increasing satiety which reduces the likelihood of overeating. Plus, they're extremely versatile; you can dress them up or dress them down, and they're incredibly delicious with the right combinations of foods. But top off your salad with the wrong dressing and you could be ingesting more calories and fat than if you had downed an ice cream sundae. Here's a fantastic no added sugar version of Thousand Island Dressing that won't leave you marooned on the island of big fat fatties.
