Two tablespoons of this dressing offers about 50 calories. That is more than enough dressing to put on one to two cups of salad and is a great way to keep the calories low.

If using this type of vinegar for cooking, remember that in one cup of balsamic vinegar there are about 220 calories. Most recipes call for a lot less!
For weight loss enthusiasts, balsamic vinegar can be kept in a spritzer bottle and sprayed on veggies to flavor them up. This is a healthy alternative to ranch dips, sour cream and other fatty sauces. Vinegar is light and flavorful and, best of all wont pack on the calories.
