I really love Cardini’s Light Caesar Vinaigrette. It’s one of the better tasting store-bought bottled dressings. It’s sold in most large supermarket chains in the salad dressing aisle. I found it at Von’s/Safeway and Gelsons.
My favorite light salami is a brand called, Columbus Lite Italian Dry Salami. You’ll most likely find it in the deli section of the supermarket. There are other brands available in the luncheon meat section of the supermarket
