The vinegarettes/Italian type of dressings are my favorites.   I like any of those.   Love Balsamic vinegar ones too.   I do like Ranch but avoid it for the fat and calories.   I can't tell a difference in a fat-free Italian.   That also helps.

Very rarely do I purchase ready made bottled dressing.  I have a stash of different vinegars and oils and mix up my own dressings depending upon what type of salad I make.

I like Ranch, I know its bad for me, but the FF one's taste nasty.  Had a salad yesterday and it had a ginger dressing on it that was really good. I like Italian dressings as well. I have a recipe fora really good one I need to look into making.

I like Ranch, but really more as a dip for veggies (or cheesy bread!), and I don't really like the bottled stuff, either. When we have salads we dress it with one of the flavored olive oil/balsamic vinegars we have. I really like the Blood Orange Olive Oil with white balsamic best. We discovered our olive oil company when we went to Sonoma a couple years ago. Figone's. We joined their mail order club, so we get a bottle of balsamic and a bottle of olive oil in the mail four times a year.

Casear is my favorite.  I also like Italian, but not the zesty variety.  I use oil & vinegar for my pasta salad.  I wish I like more...or at least would try more.  I hate the thought of wasting the money spent on them that I never try other varieties.

My favorite is the dry packet that you make up yourself

But.... I cannot use it all up before it goes bad... so, I buy this...

The last salad I had at home, last week, I drizzled some olive oil on it and then shook on some red wine vinegar and a dash of salt.   That's my only attempt at making my own.   And advice on adding anything else?   Do you mix it together and add that to the top of the salad or just mix it on the salad?
