Any ideas for low-calorie and easy-to-make salad dressings for your bring-to-work salad?

*LOW CALORIE RANCH DRESSING*
1 (1 oz.) pkg. dry ranch style salad dressing mix
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. plain low fat yogurt
Mix ingredients until smooth to creamy. Refrigerate several hours before serving. 10 calories per tablespoon.

lemon juice or vinegar, dill, love feta cheeese in my salads as well. if i do use dressing, fresh ginger and garlic can be use to make your own dressing. If using packaged dressings, I prefer to dip every bite into the dressing that way you use less dressing.

The amount depends on how big the salad is... : )
3/4 C olive oil
1/4 C vinegar (whatever you can find in your closet)
lots of italian herbs and spices... oregano, thyme, basil, etc)
a little bit of splenda, to taste, if you like the kind from Olive Garden.
Parm cheese for sprinkling on top

I use a basil-infused extra virgin olive oil that I drizzle at home on my salad. No vinegar. I add a little sea salt when I'm ready to eat it. The brand name is A'L'Olivier, from France. It's best not to use prepared dressings as they frequently have unhealthy additives in them.

I usually just use oil & vinegar. I add some great herbs, I think it's Bragg's that makes a 24 herb mixture that is excellent for salads. But I've also made some good dressings with plain yogurt and lemon juice. I found a recipe once and just enjoy experimenting with it...
