At this time of the year, questions frequently come up in Weight Watchers forums and meetings about salad dressings! What can be used on salads to make them more interesting, which are low in SmartPoints and most importantly which ones are tasty. These Low SmartPoint Salad Dressings are all available in the UK and can make a bowl of salad taste just so much better.
