5 Easy - Dairy Free - Salad Dressings

9:11 AM

I get asked a lot how I change up my salad from day to day and my answer is always with dressing.
Dressing, Dressing, Dressing.
If you're not careful the more dairy based dressings are not the healthiest and take away the nutritional value of your salad. 
I love a good DAIRY FREE salad dressing. They tend to be less calories, healthier, and perfectly light for the salads! 
I collected together 5 of my favorite Dairy Free Salad Dressing Recipes. Two are my personal recipes while the other three are from some of my favorite food bloggers! 

1/2 cup of any type of Mayo
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dried Dill
1 Tablespoon Dried Chives
1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley
to taste Salt and Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
as needed, to thin Almond Milk

Mix all the ingredients together except the milk.Add almond milk and thin to you get he consistency you want. I tend to like mine thin for salad dressings but if you want it a little thicker for a more dip consistency add little to no milk.

1/2 Cup of Vegan Mayonnaise (I used Just Mayo)
1/4 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce (this is the only NON-Vegan ingredient, you can easily use a substitute)
2 tsp of Dijon Mustered
1 1/2 TBLS of Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper To Taste (heavier on the pepper)
Dairy Free Parmesan, as much or as little as you want (see below)
Dairy Free Milk (cashew is preferred but soy and almond milk is fine. Just make sure its not flavored)

  • Mix all the ingredients together except the milk. 
  • Use the dairy free milk to thin it into the consistency that you'd like.
  •  I usually end up adding a tad bit more Worcestershire and lemon to get that tangy taste.
To make the dairy free parmesan: Chop up 1/4 cup of cashews in a food processor and add nutritional yeast to taste (start out with 1tsp just to be safe and then add more to get the cheesy taste)
Honey Mustard from Eating Bird Food
1 lemon, juiced
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons honey (or maple syrup for a vegan version)
2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until combined or add to a mason jar and shake to combine.

Creamy Balsamic from Hot For Food
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
3 Tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp of dijon mustard
1 tsp of coconut nectar or agave
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
sea salt and pepper to taste. 

1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Add everything to a clean jar, screw on the lid, and shake like crazy until mixed well.
