Ask for your dressing on the side so you can control the portions.

Avoid creamy dressings/sauces; Opt for vinaigrettes instead.

If your salad is loaded with veggies and toppings, try it without dressing.

If you really want to cut back on fat & calories, use mustard and vinegar-based hot sauces as your dressing.
