Healthy foods like salads can become unhealthy calorie bombs if you use too much dressing. If you’re getting bored with your recipes, instead of adding fat or chemicals, add some vinegar.

We’ve covered some make-your-own salad dressings before, and specialty vinegars add flavour to everything without many calories. Soups, marinades and anything that uses a little vinegar taste better with a different style. The Kitchn explains that balsamic is a good start, but there’s more on the shelf:

While balsamic gets a lot of attention, red wine vinegar has a nice bite to it and rice wine vinegar has a sweetness that is great in a lot of salads or to pickle vegetables. I recently discovered brown rice vinegar which has a delicate sweetness and is wonderful in salad dressings, as is apple cider or champagne vinegar.

Many supermarkets and speciality stores are getting on the flavoured vinegar bandwagon. All you need is a tablespoon or so to enhance your food.
