Best Keto Salad Dressing, Ranked

Keto salad dressing is confusing. Since the keto diet is specifically a high-fat diet, a lot of salad dressing already is keto friendly, as long as it isn’t secretly packed with sugar. Hidden Valley Ranch? Keto friendly salad dressing! Since I couldn’t plausibly taste every high-fat, low-sugar salad dressing in existence, for this taste test I focused exclusively on dressings that specifically advertise being low sugar and low carb. 

Before we continue, let me stress: If you have a favorite salad dressing and it isn’t something psychotically sweet like catalina or honey mustard, g’head and do a google and find out if it’s keto friendly. If it is keto friendly and you’re on the keto diet, congratulations. You already know the best salad dressing for keto eating. Most keto salad dressing is not. very. good. I do think I found the best keto salad dressing, though. Grab your salad fixins—don’t forget the bacon bits—and read on for the best keto salad dressings.

Best Sweet

SkinnyGirl Raspberry Vinaigrette

Real Housewife Bethany Frankel has turned diet culture into a ding-dang grocery empire. SkinnyGirl debuted in 2011 with a low-cal, ready-to-drink Margarita and now markets everything from Pinot Grigio to popcorn. This raspberry vinaigrette is a bit of an outlier in the keto salad dressing world by virtue of being both sugar free and fat free. If you want a salad dressing that packs some cals, this isn’t your jam, but if you want something sweet and low carb, it’s a good option. It has a rich, strong red wine vinegar flavor and a hint of berry fruitiness. It’s light and refreshing, which makes it the best keto dressing for a salad you’re going to pile with a bunch of fatty stuff like cheese and bacon.

Best Creamy

Chosen Foods Ranch

If you’re choosing a keto salad dressing, Chosen Foods is a good choice (sorry, couldn’t help muhself). It’s made with avocado oil, so it’s rich, satisfying, and fatty—good fatty. (There’s evidence that monounsaturated fats can actually help lower cholesterol, unlike saturated fats.) If you love a really herb-rich ranch, this is the best keto salad dressing for you. It’s very dilly, and that’s a big plus in my book. TBH, I don’t love Hidden Valley Ranch (don’t kill me, Jordan!), so I’d probably gravitate toward this ranch, diet or no.

Best of the Best

Chosen Foods Lemon Garlic

If you’re a person who always doubles the number of garlic cloves a recipe calls for and who doesn’t mind walking around with absolutely kickin’ breath, this is the best keto salad dressing. It’s tangy and citrussy, but has a powerful, savory garlic flavor. I love it. I gave my colleague Jordan a whiff, and they said it smells like garlic knots, and, frankly, more things should smell like garlic knots. This would be so good on a salad topped with some crispy fried chicken tenders

  • Many weight loss programs promise fast and unrealistic results that attract desperate people. But beneath the facade of these programs lie unhealthy recipes, unsustainable routines, and weight loss that never lasts. Most of the time, people who undergo these programs fail to keep the weight off or incorporate the diets into their regular routines.

    That is where the 21-Day Smoothie Diet program comes in. Everyone likes a smoothie; first, they are healthy since they are made from fruits. And if certain fruits are not appealing, you could always replace them with the ones you prefer. They also taste refreshing and are easy to incorporate into your regular diet plans.

    That is aside from the fact that it is much easier to make smoothies than most other meals you would find in other diet plans. The 21-day Smoothie Diet program by health coach Drew Sgoutas might solve all your weight loss problems. ..
