My current fave: walnut oil, lime juice, freshly grated ginger root, freshly pressed garlic, wf tamari. I make a batch and keep in the fridge. That way the flavors can meld over time. Also, walnut oil doesn't get solid when cold.

You know what is SO good?  Dark-toasted sesame oil, baby.  VERY flavorful, in a complex, nutty sorta wondrous way.  Try that instead of the olive oil sometimes.

You can also use creative things like pesto, pureed fruits, etc., in salad dressings.

I use maple syrup and walnut oil with sea salt.  Great over greens with green apple, cranberries, walnuts and a bit of goat cheese.  Mmmmmm!!!!

I think I know what I'm having for dinner tonight!

How interesting and creative!  That sounds delicous!  ...Too bad I'm not allowed to have maple syrup...or apple...or goat cheese.  *boo HOO!*  But it sounds wonderful.  Wowie.

edited to add:  I think I know the answer, but I'm curious:  do you use dried or fresh cranberries?  Dried would be DA BOMB in the salad you describe, I'm thinking.  Ummmmmmmm.  Lucky A's!

These are great ideas to make freshly prepared dressings, which is always best.  For a store bought option, Annie's Naturals offers a Lemon & Chive Dressing (Vinegar Free).  It is canola oil based with water, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, shallots, mustard flour, black pepper (?), chives, and xanthum gum.

Forgot to say, try my famous "spread" (http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b=btdlf1,v=display,m=1122303873,s=0), only a little thinner (more oil or ghee, less nutritional yeast flakes) for a salad dressing.  It is THE BOMBAROO!  I usually make it with

Dark-toasted sesame oil (about 2 parts)
lemon juice (about 1/2 a part)
Nutritional yeast (about 1 part)
Sea salt (to taste)

But you can use olive oil, ghee, or something like walnut oil or whatever oil you like.  You can add garlic and other spices, too, such as organic "poultry seasoning" (turns out I LOVE this stuff added to just about anything--it is mainly sage...A's and sage click well, right?*), curry powder, or whatever.

Nutritional yeast flakes rock my world.

* edited to add:  just checked, sage is neutral for A's.

Thanks for clarifying xanthum gum, Drea.  I wasn't sure about that one.  Peppermint Twist:  your dressings are awesome.  Fresh is obviously the way to go.  What time is dinner today???????

My current favorite is:

6 oz yogurt (recipe calls for plain low fat but I use vanilla)

2 tsp fresh grated ginger

2 TB fresh lemon or lime juice

1 pack stevia (my own addition, gives it a sweet kick)

Makes enough for two servings.

I pour it over a cold salad made with raw snap or snow peas, red onion, celery and some cold chicken.   Almost like eating dessert.  I may try adding some grapes next time as well.

Mitchie:  Have you ever tried Organic WholeSoy Yogurt?  I have found their brand to be the best (vegan, gluten-casein-free) with a wonderful texture and taste.  Not sure if your brand contains dairy.

Hey Milton - Haven't tried it but I'll give it shot.  I was looking at some organic lemon flavored the other day also.  I bet strawberry flavored would be good with some fresh spinach and chicken and maybe a couple chunks of watermelon thrown in to celebrate summer.

Great ideas!  I have a some questions,though.

My ghee is solid, how do you incorporate it into salad dressing?  Must you warm it up or do you just blend it with other ingredients?

Does nutritional yeast cause any problems with...uh..yeast problems?  

Has anyone made their own mayo with lemon juice since we can't have vinegar?  Got a great recipe?  Thanks!

blending softens the ghee......

no, to your nutritional yeast question
full spectrum of "B" vitamins, lots of protein, minerals
the good yeast found in nutritional yeast will
fight the bad candida yeast.


and yes to the mayo recipe


Quoted Text
1 egg yolk (pasteuriced, no salmonella!)
pinch of salt
½ tsp. of lemon juice or (white) vinegar
pinch of (white) pepper
1-1½ dl oil


Mix the egg yolk with all the ingredients except the oil untill it is smooth. mix in the oila small amount a time (1 tsp) and mix it with high speed whipping. Use a machine for this if you a out of shape or not a french cook.

The magic in this recipe is to use an egg yolk and oil with roomtemperature, otherwise it ruins everything. And it does take some practice to get it right with the whipping process, but so does almost everything else in life. Add a vey small amount in the beginning and when the texture gets "mayo-like" you can begin pouring in a fine small squirt. Pratice and you become a master.

Lola--we have to stop meeting like this!  

Thanks for the recipe!

I have a Vita Mix blender I was hoping to use--have you used a blender to make mayo?

Also, what is a dl, is that 1 cup?   Which kind of oil have you used? --I have cold pressed canola...I miss mayo!

I make my own mayo...and I've tried using the blender, the hand wand, and the food processor. Each time, though, I end up using a good old whisk. It's good on the arms, too!

Hi to all!
I just wanted to thank everyone for posting these dressing recipes/ideas. I'm on my third week of the diet now and don't do so well with lemon, so this is very encouraging!!

OOOOhhhh Sunny!  How unfortunate!

What about pink/ruby red grapefruit in a salad?  I like to cut off the peel, then supreme the grapefruit (cut out the nice fleshy bits from the membrane in a wedge fashion) and then SQEEEEEEZE the remaining bulk of membrane over the salad with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.

Also - for a creamy style dressing:

Take some plain kifer and sweeten it slightly with honey (or agave nectar) season with finely minced thyme, parsley, dill, basil and a little onion powder, garlic powder and salt.  RANCH DRESSING!  (My family can't tell the difference - and they aren't on the diet)

Or sometimes I do this for a dinner with guests:

Kifer, again sweetened with caramelized onion, salt and thyme

or

Kifer, the best creamy blue cheese you can find (most roqueforts are sheep's milk - and it's only for a "treat") a blob of sour cream and a blob of mayo (home-made) and lemon juice.  Mmmmm!!!
