ok so i've always loved vinegarette type dressings and never really tried anything else. Well like 2 weeks ago, I tried Annies Goddess dressing and fell in love. it was soooooooo good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"> The problem is that its like 130 calories per serving with 13 grams of fat. That's alot for just the dressing. i'd rather eat more food and not worry so much about the nutritional info on the dressing. So basically i'm wondering of anyone knows of anything comperable to the goddess dressing or lemony/tahini type dressing that is lower in fat and calories? or if anyone can recommend another vegan dressing that tastes good and is lower in fat. thanks everyone<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I haven't found any yet. Unless I make my own balsamic vinaigrette. But I love creamy dressings. I'm currently hooked on Nasoya blue cheese but it's very fattening. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I'm sure there are some recipes in the recipe forum for salad dressings. I think some use tofu.

<span style="color:#008000;">When it comes to salad dressings, I either like Newman's Balsamic Vinegrette or Low-Fat Sesame Ginger. The Sesame Ginger is among the best things I've ever tasted, salad-dressing wise.</span>

I found some I like from a company called Up Country Organics. Tahini Goddess is 50 cals. for 2 tbsp and Mandarine Sesame is 30 cals. for 2 tbsp. It also doesn't have any transfat, artificial sweeteners or refined sugar (they use evaporated cane juice.) They're vegan and they totally rock.
