Salad Dressing

A tablespoon of ranch dressing contains 145 calories. But measure out a tablespoon and try to mix it into an average-sized salad and you’ll most likely be left with a lot of plain lettuce. The average salad can contain up to 5 tablespoons of dressing, which can add an additional 725 calories to your diet. Stick with vinegar, salt and pepper, and a measured tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
