Hi, are there grocery store ready made salad dressings that meet Atkins guidelines?

Ken's Steakhouse Ranch, Buttermilk Ranch, Blue Cheese and Northern Italian are my faves and all are 1 NC per serving. There are others, just read the labels.

Walden Farms has great Atkins Friendly dressings!

Walden Farms are mostly overly processed (really, imagine what they have to do to it to be zero carb, zero calorie, zero fat!), and taste really gross IMO :p

Stick with as close to natural as you can get. The salad dressings found in the fresh section, nearest to the salad ingredients, are likely the best bet, they have natural ingredients, a lot are full fat, and minimal added sugars (read teh ingredients label, as well as the nutrition panel. Added sugars should be #5 or lower on the list. The lower on the list an ingredient is, the less of it there is. The fewer the ingredients, the more natural it is). When I lived in the US I used mainly Marzetti, and Bolthouse. Since I moved back to Canada, I use Renee's, and Compliments (all of which are also gluten free).

I haven't found the first WF product that I could stomach! They are all nasty, IMHO

Marie's Dressings in the refrigerated produce section. Ranch, Blue Cheese, Blue Cheese w/ Bacon, Creamy Italian, Chipolte Ranch and a couple more (perhaps Greek, perhaps Caesar - it's been a while!) are all 1-2 grams net carbs. Great for dipping veggies and/or cheese for a quick snack. Couldn't do Atkins without my Marie's.
