Light Thousand Island Dressing

Low-fat yogurt makes this dressing a better option than the bottled kind, and it still has the orange hue the classic is known for, thanks to the addition of ketchup and red pepper.

Light Blue Cheese Dressing

This dressing is so rich and creamy — and has the telltale kick blue cheese is known for — that you won't believe it has fewer than 100 calories per serving.

Light Italian Dressing

Make this lightened-up Italian dressing in a bowl with a whisk; or, for a shortcut, shake it up in a glass jar with a lid, and use the jar to store your leftovers in the fridge.

Light Ranch Dressing

Creamy ranch dressing is a salad star, but it's also great for dunking vegetables or baked chicken fingers in. Dip away with this guilt-free version, clocking in at only 64 calories per 2-tablespoon serving.
