Hello there, eric ~~ I'm not familiar enough with the common store brands to be able to recommend any for you. :-( I prefer making my own salad dressing; it's quick & simple to make, cheaper than the bottled stuff, and I KNOW what's in it. So maybe these suggestions will help. :-)
If you have a blender, you are 3 minutes away from having your own personal salad dressing of any old kind you would like.
Here are a few Beneficial Blends for AB. Use them to get your imagination going on others you'd enjoy.
1) Basic: 1 cup olive oil, juice from one lemon, dash of sea salt.
2) Add to the basic recipe a handful of fresh basil or oregano - or 1/4 cup of red wine.
3) Fresh pink grapefruit, sectioned; 1 cup olive oil; one or two tablespoons of blackstrap molasses, touch of sea salt. Sounds bizarre, but it's very tasty!
4) 1 cup walnut oil, juice from 1/2 lemon, one tablespoon of miso, a raw garlic clove, two tablespoons brewer's yeast. Makes a rather thick, pungent dressing for Asian-style grilled vegetables, noodles, grilled turkey breast, or a hefty salad.
In all cases, just dump everything in the blender and whiz it up. Adjust to taste, and you're done!
I wouldn't think you will need to adapt the AB diet to handle the diabetes. In fact, it should begin altering you, since diabetes is one of the conditions it is designed to alleviate. People often write that after being on their diet for a few weeks, they needed to reduce their medication! so it's a good idea to keep a close eye on your insulin dosage, and stay in touch with your doctor.
