What are you favorite induction salad dressings?

Looking for ideas and also what I can and cannot have on the induction phase.

Thanks!

For salad dressings you can use a little almond milk and add a touch of lemon juice, salt, pepper, mustard + whatever else you like without carbs. You can make your own in seconds.
I make my own almond juice by first boiling a handful of almonds for a few minutes and then putting them in a blender witha little water. The liquid is your almond juice and the solid part is a nice creamy almond paste that you can use for whatever you like but watch the carbs!

Hidden Valley Ranch, and Hidden Valley Bacon Ranch-- I eat these both at work. At home I eat Marie's Creamy Italian. all are 2g carb per 2 tbsp, except the bacon ranch is 1g per tbsp. Yum! Extra dipping power!

I only use hidden valley ranch. I use one serving on a spinach salad everyday for lunch, with fresh mushrooms, onions, at least one hb egg, sometimes chicken or other meat, sometimes parmesan, and half an Avacado. I was stalled until I started eating half an Avacado per day. Also started snacking on celery w a little ranch...

Um Auburn ...maybe you mistyped? If bacon ranch were 1 gram carbs per 1 Tbsp, it would also be 2 grams for 2 Tbsp?? I'd love to find a dressing with 1 gram per 2 Tbsp!!!

Easy home made blue cheese everyone will go nuts for!

2 containers blue cheese crumbles *those round plastic ones by the packaged cheese
1 pint sour cream
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tablespoons chopped dill
salt/pepper to taste
4 table spoons heavy cream or half and half

Mix well. Its better if it sits over night as all the flavors gel together.
Dip into it or smother it over a lettuce wedge chop.

Marie's makes some pretty good low carb dressings:

Marie’s Chunky Blue Cheese

That is for the blue cheese. I just bought some and it's pretty good, also bought the ceasar, haven't tried it yet but i'm sure it's good.

The ceasar is great! I add fresh squeezed lemon and parm shaves to the top of my salad with it. Perfect meal with sliced chicken tossed in!

I make all my own with the most vital tool in my kitchen - my VitaMix.

I've had some flops for sure - but this one was particularly good: a full bunch of cilantro (stems and leaves), juice from 1 lemon, 1 garlic, 1/2 Thai red pepper (seeded), handful of almonds, 2 tbsp greek yogurt - whir it all up in the vitamix then slowly drizzle in some EVOO into a nice emulsification.

Cindy's Kitchen Real Blue Cheese from Whole Foods - 2 Tbsp 0 carbs. It's HEAVEN, best blue cheese ever! (and it's non-GMO)

Cardini's Aged Parmesean Ranch - 2 Tbsp 1 carb. Best RANCH I've ever had, and I'm not a big Ranch person.

I loved Ghardetto's Cesar, delish! But I've since gone all organic so I'm not eating it anymore.
