Weight Watchers Creamy Italian Salad Dressing

Before we get into today’s recipe, can I show you something fabulous that I found this weekend???

Isn’t it gorgeous??? It’s for my bedroom and it’s an amazing gray canvas… pretty big in size, and it’s going to live over my bed.  I’m ecstatic!

Things have been a little eh lately, so I needed some retail therapy… but I never expected to stumble on something as wonderful as this!

Overall, I’ve been feeling the need to spruce up a bit.  Try new things with my hair, new clothing combinations… and I guess a little redecorating!   There’s something about mixing it up that I just love, and that applies to my salads as well.

I’m always looking for new salad dressings to try.  I hang on tightly to my old standbys – Cardini Light Caesar, Kraft Light Asian Sesame, and Marzetti’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette.

When I stumbled across this dressing, I HAD to make it immediately.

Butter lettuce is one of my weekly grocery staples, and this dressing tastes AMAZING on my favorite greens.  If you haven’t tried it yet, you seriously should soon.  It tastes like BUTTAH…

Weight Watchers Creamy Italian Salad Dressing

From Weight Watchers

Serves 10


1/2 cup light mayonnaise

6 Tbsp. skim milk

1/4 cup water

4 tsp. white wine vinegar

1 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 tsp. dried basil

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper


1.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir with a whisk.

2.  Place in a dressing bottle, and refrigerate.

3.  Use 1 1/2 Tbsp. on your favorite salad.

Per 1 1/2 Tbsp. Serving:

CAL 48; CARB 4g; FAT 3g; PROT 1g; FIB 0g; SOD 128mg; WW Points Plus: 1

Note:  The dressing comes out a little thin and liquidy, but that makes it even better!  One of the reasons that we tend to overdress our salads is because the dressing doesn’t appear to coat all of the greens.  The good news about this dressing is that a little bit goes a long way.  You’ll love it.  LEAVE the water in the dressing… even if you’re tempted to take it out.  You won’t be sorry!

    LOVE IT! Hey Kelly, where did you buy your reusable salad container? Looking to get one!! Thanks <3

      Hi Kate! I tried to send you an email directly earlier, so you may have already gotten a response. The bottle I use is just a Good Seasons carafe that you can get at the grocery store. They sell a little kit in the dressing aisle that comes with Italian dressing mix. The bottle is pre-marked with lines for how much oil and vinegar, etc to add, but it works great for other dressings I make too. Hope this helps!

    I am so glad I came across this recipe. I usually buy Kraft light Creamy Italian and I guess they don’t make it anymore. I love it on baked potatoes. Can’t wait to try this!!! Thanks.
