From entrée salads to marinades for meats or dips for veggies, salad dressings have a variety of uses. To please any holiday crowd, baste meats with salad dressings or some of the many flavorful tasty sauces available in grocery stores.

For an alternative to the traditional holiday fare, add a few pieces of turkey to mixed greens and salad vegetables. Sprinkle with dried cranberries or nuts, and top it off with your favorite salad dressing. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that eating salad vegetables with added fat, such as full-fat salad dressings, actually promotes the absorption of key nutrients.

Looking to give a little kick to holiday meals? Mayonnaise adds terrific flavor to deviled eggs, sandwiches and deli salads. With so many varieties available, including light and low-fat, mayonnaise can be part of a well-balanced diet, meeting anyone's dietary needs. Commercial mayonnaise is made with healthy oils, contains Omega 3 fatty acids and is free of trans fats.

Yellow mustard, hot sauce and horseradish are all low calorie condiments that add a spicy kick to everything from baked macaroni and cheese to jambalaya. For delicious holiday meal recipe ideas using salad dressings, mayonnaise and condiments, visit
