    What do you think about fat-free salad dressings? Are they really a good alternative or do they taste strange and chemical?

    I bought a few years ago a Kraft Fat-Free French dressing and it was gloopy and was very sour and had a strange chemical 'tang'.

    I'm wondering whether it's better just to make a decent salad dressing with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil at 6 syns (about)?

    Which salad dressings have you tried and which would you recommend? :)

    I used SaladLight (from the makers of FryLight) ceasar dressing and it had a bit of a odd taste, but when I sprayed it on my salad and mixed it through it was lovely. Fat free french dressing is another good one, or washing some balsamic viegar through. I think it depends on your tastes really :)

    Thanks for the tip - I forgot about the Frylight salad sprays. :)

    You can only get them in Sainsburys, Morrisons and Budgens and funnily enough mine were with the ice cream :S On that shelf that has the viegar and mayo and so on.

    I'm not keen on salad dressing full stop but I do like a bit of Helmans extra light mayo - naughtie but nice.
