For dieters who are committed to cutting calories and fat while losing weight, finding an HCG approved salad dressing can seem like a challenge. However, it doesn’t have to be. While your goal is to keep your calories at or under 300-400 per meal and to avoid using oils, you can still dress your healthy salads with something tasty and good for you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor a fresh and simple salad dressing that won’t mess up your HCG diet, simply squeeze the juice of two lemons into a small bowl and whisk the lemon juice with fresh chopped parsley. Cover your salad with the dressing. Experiment with different herbs, such as basil or mint if parsley isn’t your favorite.

Get an even bigger punch of flavor with apple cider vinegar. When you mix this vinegar with a bit of water, some garlic, salt and pepper and red pepper flakes, you will really taste something special on your salad, and you won’t feel dressing-deprived at all. Add a pinch of sugar substitute if you need to sweeten it up.
