Struggling through diet after diet in the 1980s, we ate a lot of salad. In those days, before the wide distribution of artisan vinegars and olive oils, we preferred “diet” salad dressings to generic oil and vinegar. The brand with the widest choice was Walden Farms: zero calories, zero carbs, zero fats. Not to mention, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, keto-friendly, and certified kosher by OU.
While we embraced it at first, we grew tired of the overall flavors. But that was then.
Now, Walden Farms has improved its line of salad dressings—very good flavor and a lot of them, for dressing, marinades, and recipes. And still zero calories, zero carbs, and zero fats. We tried them and were impressed!
All of the salad dressings now have natural flavors with improved taste and texture on the inside and a label design on the outside.
