Cooking Light’s Complete Cookbook Giveaway

Cooking Light Complete Cookbook
We’re not going to let a silly little technical issue get in our way…the giveaways continue!

As we baconly promised, we’re giving away Cooking Light’s Complete Cookbook!

Naturally, we love Cooking Light’s Complete Cookbook for all the undetectably light and healthy recipes that are perfectly in tune with our New Year’s resolutions. However, the real reason we love this book is that while its “light” name belies its hefty, 600+ page size, it’s light and easy to use because it’s a binder. We can unhook a single recipe page from the rings and tack it up on the fridge to cook, instead of lugging the whole huge tome to the kitchen and monopolizing valuable counter space while we cook. We know. It’s the little things (literally), isn’t it?

We’ve got to get back to finishing up work on our backend (the other backend, not the one we’re trying to shrink with salads) so we’ll wrap up the introduction and just have you enter:

How to Enter the Cooking Light Complete Cookbook Giveaway

Now, the Cooking Light Complete Cookbook has a LOT more than just salads — the salad chapter is actually one of the thinnest in the whole book, pun totally intended — but we actually love using salads as an excuse to eat dressing. So in honor of the most counter {health} productive way to eat a salad…

Leave a comment on this post with your favorite salad dressing.

To get things started, we’ll go first: Green Goddess.

You have until midnight this Friday, February 4 to get in on the action. Good luck!

homemade ceasar dressing…anchovies and all!

Claudie January 31, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Might sound boring, but my favorite dressing is simple olive oil together with balsamic vinegar, fresh pepper, and salt. I find it simple and “light” ;)

Jacqueline Wu February 1, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Totally agree! But honey mustard is a close second.

Cooki Lumsden January 31, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Blue cheese.

Oooh, I’d have to go with good old oil and vinegar. It’s not only simple, it reminds me of my grandma and her Easter dinner. ^^

Leanna @ Raptortoe.com January 31, 2011 at 3:08 pm

I don’t really know what it’s called, but it’s a dressing with grainy mustard, plain yogurt, honey and apple cider vinegar. It’s SO AMAZING. I try to make it whenever I can.

Kate January 31, 2011 at 3:21 pm

I’d have to say a tie between carrot-Ginger and balsamic vin (housemade, that is)!

Lindsay R. January 31, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Cindy January 31, 2011 at 5:38 pm

A good French Vinaigrette with champagne vinegar.

Ashlie January 31, 2011 at 5:41 pm

I am a salad fanatic – so asking me to choose one salad dressing is like asking me to pick my favorite child (or niece, given that I don’t have kids of my own)! I love a good balsamic vinagrette on just about anything, but I also like a simple honey lime dressing (lime juice, olive oil, pressed garlic, sea salt and honey) over bibb lettuce with diced avocado and toasted pepitas.

Jote January 31, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Sesame Miso…every time. :)

Debbi January 31, 2011 at 5:45 pm

I love a good “garbage” salad!! I have two favorite dressings for said very large bowl of everything I can throw on top of butter lettuce. Both homemade, both involving seasoned rice vinegar.

The first one is a simple one part rice vinegar, one part soy sauce and one part either olive oil or sesame oil

The second one is two parts rice vinegar, one part olive oil and a dash or two of cumin, cayenne and sea salt

Of course, whenever I can get ahold of Benihana’s ginger dressing, I will happily set the rice vinegar aside

kathy January 31, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Karla B. January 31, 2011 at 11:53 pm

I like huckleberry vinaigrette…and maple fig…ginger pear…pear gorgonzola…and raspberry walnut. Consorzio made a great Mango Fat Free Dressing but I don’t think they make it any more. If they do, it sure is hard to find. My kids make a curry vinaigrette that is pretty good too. (uh…was I supposed to pick just one???)

Paola February 1, 2011 at 12:33 am

I’ve never found a bottled dressing that really does it for me, so I’ll have to say my homemade balsamic vinaigrette–light, simple, and delicious!

Angela T. Macleod February 1, 2011 at 2:21 am

I’ve got to go with a yummy Balsamic as well…num num num num num

Jenna February 1, 2011 at 9:54 am

A mixture of french and bleu cheese dressing. It sounds silly, but it is absolutely wonderful. And if the french dressing is light, it cancels out all the calories in the bleu cheese, right? Right?!

emily February 1, 2011 at 9:57 am

Just balsamic vinegar!

Erin February 1, 2011 at 9:57 am

My homemade caesar salad dressing with roasted garlic and anchovy.

Jessica M. February 1, 2011 at 9:58 am

I’m not a big fan of dressing, but I really love the ginger dressing you sometimes get at Japanese restaurants. Sometimes they have a peanut like dressing too that’s really tasty.

Kirsten February 1, 2011 at 9:59 am

My local vegetarian cafĂ© makes an amazing maple-balsamic vinaigrette that goes well with a goat cheese and apple salad… mmmm :)

Kara Olson February 1, 2011 at 10:02 am

cooking sherry

julialikesred February 1, 2011 at 10:13 am

Ranch mixed with Tabasco. Lordy it is delish.

Brian February 1, 2011 at 10:14 am

Lucini makes a Fig & Walnut Vinaigrette that is really delicious. Yum!

Jackie February 1, 2011 at 10:14 am

My favorite is a white balsamic vinaigrette. I find white balsamic to be lighter than regular!

Kate February 1, 2011 at 10:15 am

i don’t care how bad it is for me, or how many times i’ve tried to deny how good it is – i love ranch!!

Roland February 1, 2011 at 10:16 am

casketsalesman February 1, 2011 at 10:27 am

the best for me is not very light, it’s just Wishbone Blue Cheese, I know, not exactly low in calories

Megan February 1, 2011 at 10:27 am

Champagne vinagarette- it just makes me feel fancy

Jean February 1, 2011 at 10:28 am

Homemade vinaigrette – olive oil, mustard, maple syurp, some diced onion! YuM!

Danielle February 1, 2011 at 10:28 am

My favorite dressing is sesame ginger. Though to be honest, I’m not such a big fan of dressings. A squirt of lemon usually is enough for me!

Paige February 1, 2011 at 10:29 am

Love Balsamic Vinaigrette!!

Brigitte February 1, 2011 at 10:30 am

My usual dressing is simply olive oil, lemon juice, a few herbs, salt and pepper.

Christine February 1, 2011 at 10:31 am

Balsamic, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper… I keep it simple from my years in Italy.

Nick Semenza February 1, 2011 at 10:31 am

My favorite is my own Asian creation:

2 T Rice wine or palm vinegar
1 T dark soy sauce
1/2 t fresh grated ginger
1/4 t presses garlic clove
1 t finely chopped cucumber
juice from 1/4 lime
crushed Thai chili pepper to taste

Measurements are estimated and change on a regular basis depending on my mood :)

Gail February 1, 2011 at 10:31 am

homemade balsamic vinaigrette

Cherie February 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

My favorite dressing is the one they have at Korean restaurants – sugar, vinegar, sesame, a little soy, and red pepper flakes!

Elaine February 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

I don’t think it’s possible to get better than a warm bacon vinaigrette.

MrsWheel February 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

I use Penzey’s Italian Vinegar and Oil blend to make my own – it’s not as healthy as a simple vinaigrette, but it’s much better than the bottled stuff I was crazy about, and it tastes the same.

Stephanie February 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

Brianne February 1, 2011 at 10:49 am

100% RANCH!!! I think I lost 10 lbs after the first 3 months of moving to Australia, where (sadly) restaurant style ranch is extremely hard to come by. Good news for my waistline, bad news for my midnight cravings

*Just Fran* February 1, 2011 at 10:49 am

Smushed garlic, fresh cracked pepper, kosher salt, fresh lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil…whisk it all together. So fresh and light and Mmmmmmmmm.

Surayya Taranum February 1, 2011 at 10:50 am

The type of Ranch dressing that you get in restaurants.

AlliBLu February 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

creamy parmesan. i could eat it without the salad! just hand me a spoon, yummm!

Andrea McCardle February 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

Well, it all depends on the kind of salad!! If I have a salad with tons of toppings (cheese, meat, olives, bacon, ect), I prefer no dressing at all so I can taste the other yummy things. I like a nice raspberry vinagrette with a salad that has some blue cheese and walnuts in it, or a nice tangy vinegar with good quality oil to dress up some nice young greens. Or a nice hommade ranch dressing with some carrots and broccolli and greens. There are so many choices, its hard to pin down a favorite, but if I HAD to pick, it would be a tangy balsalmic vinegrette.

Brianne February 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

Bolthouse Farms Ranch – it’s made with yogurt, so it’s a lot less horrible for you than most ranch dressings, and you can actually read the ingredient list. It’s usually in the refrigerated section by the bagged salads.

BeccaW February 1, 2011 at 12:06 pm

homemade balsamic vinagrette!

Balsamic vinaigrette, particularly the one from Panera, which has the perfect amount of spice/sweet ratio.

John D. February 1, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Salads are the perfect excuse to eat full-fat Ranch dressing, which is my favorite. :)

Kristin February 1, 2011 at 12:30 pm

RANCH! I love that it’s creamy deliciousness is great with more than just salad! El Torito’s Cilantro Pepita Caesar is yummy, too!

Phyllisia February 1, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Well it really depends on what type of salad is being eaten but my favorite above all is the miso ginger dressing served in teppenyaki style Japanese restaurants.

anna zoe dapper February 1, 2011 at 12:34 pm

i love a little balsalmic vinegar and olive oil…so basic that you taste the flavors in the salad rather than just the salad dressing!

Maggie February 1, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Anything vinaigrette! Especially anything heavy on the herbs, such as cilantro or tarragon.

Jil February 1, 2011 at 12:56 pm

My favorite dressing is made with fresh squeezed oranges, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, with a little salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar. Make sure to add cilantro, cherry tomatoes, and slices of apple to a dish with this recipe. It’s a great summer refresher. Simple never tasted better!

Sharon February 1, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Hmmm, there are so many yummy dressings out there but I love the balsamic, honey, dijon mustard combo with herbs like basil or oregano!

Elizabeth February 1, 2011 at 2:43 pm

If I’m at work and really feeling healthy, I make sure to have avocados on my salad, then I squeeze a few lemon wedges over it and sprinkle on some celery salt. If I really don’t give a crap and my day has been hell, it’s all about our housemade ranch mixed with our house made salsa, plus extra garlic. After a crappy day, nothing feels better than that, lol.

Lisa Salvatori February 1, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I love a mix of garlic-infused olive oil, red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard all shaken up!

cp February 2, 2011 at 2:25 am

maple syrup vinaigrette or a nice watercress vinaigrette

Hanne February 2, 2011 at 2:42 am

I’d say something mustard-garlic-based, but I generally actually prefer my salads un-dressed.

Susie February 2, 2011 at 2:52 am

Homemade Ranch! Yum

Simone Anne February 2, 2011 at 3:09 am

Poppyseed! YUM! :D

I am such a plain Jane but my favorite is a creamy buttermilk ranch.

Teslaca February 2, 2011 at 3:35 am

I love all sorts of dressings, but one of my favorites is a ginger-carrot Asian dressing. It’s great!

elizabeth February 2, 2011 at 3:52 am

oh so many! hmm i usually end up concocting my own dressing which usually includes, olive oil, lemon juice, date honey and crushed oregano xp

Leo February 2, 2011 at 3:55 am

Lemon juice, Olive oil, salt, chilli(optional). This is the easiest dressing and it goes with so many different salads. The best

Kristin February 2, 2011 at 4:38 am

Paul Newman’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Judi Wensel February 2, 2011 at 5:42 am

My mother-in-law is from the south of France. I love her salad dressing. Everytime she makes it, it is different, but with the same ingredients such as olive oil, balsamic vinigar , mustard, and pepper. I’m sure there are secrets too, because when I make it, it doesn’t taste the same.

jess February 2, 2011 at 5:44 am

definitely the fattiest dressings taste the best: creamy ranch or blue cheese!

Jackie February 2, 2011 at 5:46 am

My favorite dressing is a lebanese fattoush salad dressing. yumm!

margaret February 2, 2011 at 6:09 am

Good Seasons Italian

Lisa February 2, 2011 at 6:11 am

I like trying new combinations of things….like cranberry juice and with a splash of balsamic and olive oil on top of spinach and mandarine oranges with dried cranberries. Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t. The mystery is the best part.

Erin February 2, 2011 at 6:17 am

Depends on what I’m in the mood for, but probably olive oil and balsamic vinegar or ranch.

Linda M February 2, 2011 at 6:19 am

I’ll call it Strawberry Vinagrette. I simply blend olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a few strawberries, a touch of maple syrup, and adjust to taste.

mcouperacer09 February 2, 2011 at 6:25 am

Melanie February 2, 2011 at 7:34 am

honestly, not a huge salad dressing (i.e. pre-made ones) fan, so I usually just make my own by mixing a little apple cider vinegar, honey, and dijon mustard. Yum :)

Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing…yummmmmm, when eating it people always ask me, “You want some salad with that dressing?”

Sue February 2, 2011 at 8:13 am

For every day: red wine vinegar and olive oil, salt and, sometimes, a bit of garlic and oregano. Occasional indulgence: old-fashioned-steakhouse-type creamy garlic.

Japanese ginger garlic dressing.

Suzanne R February 2, 2011 at 9:36 am

I love a variety of salad dressings, but I tend to go for the balsamic vinegar and olive oil, salt and pepper the most. Best quality balsamic and oil, sea salt and fresh ground black and white peppercorns.

Jenni February 2, 2011 at 9:46 am

Ranch. Bit Time. Though, really, I use it more for a dip than on salads :)

sylvie February 2, 2011 at 12:50 pm

french vinaigrette is the only dressing at my house. oil, cider vinegar, pinch of thyme, squeeze of mustard and s&p. it doesn’t over power the veggies and is made from stuff i always have around.

Cooking light has a great salad recipe with barley, black eyed peas, tomato, roasted pepper, etc… The dressing for that salad is awesome! It has lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, etc… Love it!!!
