When it comes to eating low-carb, the salad dressing and vinaigrette can be a tricky territory. Unfortunately, just because a dressing is creamy and fatty doesn’t mean it’s carb-free. Case in point? Ranch dressing.
Commercially prepared ranch dressings can have up to 2 grams of carbohydrates per serving. That may not sound like a lot, but when you’re trying to stick to eating between 25 and 50 grams of carbs per day, a few extra carbs here and there can add up quickly.
It’s healthier—not to mention tastier—to make your own dressing. The following low-carb high-fat garlic salad dressing is super simple to throw together. What’s more, you don’t need fancy ingredients. Make a big batch and store it in the fridge and you’ll have a yummy vinaigrette on hand for all your salad needs!
