My Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet: Day 37

I eat a large salad once or twice daily, often dressed with Safeway Select “Olive Oil and Balsamic Dressing.”  Wouldn’t you think the this would be an olive oil vinaigrette?  The first ingredient listed on the bottle is vegetable oil (soybean oil, extra virgin olive oil).  Then water, balsamic vinegar, etc.  I assume it has more soybean oil than olive oil.  Could they just put a drop of olive oil in a serving and still call it “Olive Oil and Balsamic Dressing”?

Just an example to illustrate you don’t really know what you’re eating unless you fix it yourself.  Gotta admit the product is tasty, however!

I’ll look for another product with extra virgin olive oil as the primary ingredient.  Any suggestions?
