A lot of my friends went on a "spritzer kick" claming that it was healthier than using a regular or even low calorie salad dressing. How you apply a dressing has no bearing on the calories, carbohydrates and sodium so if you are starting out with a regular salad dressing and putting it in a bottle that squirts out the dressing, you are not changing anything outside of the delivery method. I had a bottle of Asian Silk on the door of my refrigerator for about nine months; the only time I used it was when I was looking for something with a unique taste to dress up my raw vegetables. This has a wonderful taste on celery and lettuce if you are using the leaves as wraps for sandwiches but for some vegetables like raw broccoli and raw cauliflower it overpowered the taste of the vegetables. The Asian Silk is a nice topper for salads if you are using water chestnuts, bean sprouts or tofu and the slightly tangy kick from the orange and lemon goes great with chicken breasts or pan fried pork strips. Ultimately I ended up throwing out the bottle because I was the only one that was using it and it was getting close to the expiration date. While this was low in calories (10 calories per ten spray serving) it contained 100 milligrams of sodium.
