I know balsamic vinegar is free but I love a little drizzle of that thicker balsamic glaze on my salad. Any idea of syns?
Which other dressings do people like? What syns are they?

I always used to mix balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper with olive oil to dress salad but now I mix it with the Heinz fat free salad dressing, tastes about the same and a nice enough consistency too.

I use Hellmanns Fat Free Vinaigrette Dressing (syn-free).
Also like a tbsp extra light mayo mixed with a tbsp tomato ketchup for a seafood salad.
If the dressing of your choice is not syn-free, you can syn it by just checking the calories per tbsp, and counting 1 syn per 20 calories.

42 calories per tbs so just over 2 syns. Prob don't use a whole tablespoon so between 1-2 syns. Worth it in my opinion as makes a boring salad really nice. Thanks for advice!

If you boil balsamic vinegar down it will thicken a bit. Don't know whether it will stay thick and nice in the fridge but maybe worth a try...

Scarlett Thank you for the suggestion. I have yet to find a decent shop bought dressing but will try this idea.

Completely off-topic but can't help asking Chelsea26 is that by any chance a reference to a certain JT? Or I'm probably making a fool of myself and it's simply your name!

@Chelsea26 ( Is that how you tag someone?)

Love him! I think I may cry at the end of the season. I hope I can make it to the last game.

@alibongo5 I'll definitely cry! He's my hero

He'll be back though I reckon - couple of seasons in china and then back to us on coaching staff
