A simple low calorie Balsamic Vinaigrette made with pomegranate juice and pomegranate seeds.

Recently I read an amazing article where they talked about volume eating and volume foods. If you haven't heard of it before, volume eating basically means choosing foods that have a lot of volume (size) but are low in calories. Something like lettuce if a perfect example. You can eats tons of it for very few calories. I definitely naturally subscribe to this eating philosophy and always reach for things like spaghetti squash, zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, and fresh fruit so that I can have a huge serving without breaking the calorie bank.

Not surprisingly salads are a mainstay of this kind of eating since salads are naturally full of lower calorie choices if you add lots of fresh veggies. However it can get boring pretty quick if you don't have some killer low calorie salad dressings to mix in. This simple pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette is one of my absolute favorites. The pomegranate seeds and juice add a touch of sweetness and a tartness I love. It pairs great with a fall salad full of roasted squash, brussels sprouts, carrots, or pumpkin. Lately I have been using it with fresh spinach and walnuts. Yum. And in case you need a refresher on pomegranates, here's my favorite way to get out the seeds.

Looking for more low calorie salad dressings? Consider trying Cilantro Lime Yogurt Dressing, Light Italian Dressing, Lemon Feta Vinaigrette, Indonesian Peanut Dressing, Pumpkin Tahini Dressing, Skinny Ranch, and Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing.
