Hi, BTDers.

I'm an A bloodtype as stated in the subject.  I quickly purused the recipe center for A bloodtype friendly salad dressings.  I found two.

I need more choices.  My favorite is olive oil, lemon juice, and a dash of salt and a few pepper flake (please don't tell me pepper is not good.  It's just a dash).   It always makes the salad delicious for me.  But it's time for a change.

Any ideas?  Hopefully it's not too many ingredients.  

I'm trying to increase my salad consumption but the dressing does make a difference as to whether it enhances the salad ingredients or not.

All mainly compliant ideas  welcome!

In the salad is butter crunch lettuce (romaine works for me also because it is A compliant)  and usually slices of avocado and maybe some walnuts or almonds, maybe some endive or chopped up broccoli or parsley.  

I prefer creamy dressings over vianegrettes (but give me a great dressing idea).

OK, darlin'. These are the ingredients, besides the lemon juice and olive oil you're currently using, I'm looking at for primary salad-dressing use.
There are so many of them!

If I were you I'd consider adding one ingredient at a time to see if you like it. I.e., Make a mustard lemon vinaigrette (great, traditional combo!) or see what happens when you use an oil other than olive. Or add a little sweetener. Something that puts a different slant on your salad is to exchange a couple of drops of tamari/soy sauce for your salt (very nice with lemon). A hint of ginger in there would be nice, perhaps, too.
In any case, I'd do only one thing different at a time, to experiment and choose your favorites.

For creaminess, yogurt is a great base, but I also like a homemade mayonnaise (egg/oil) to which you can add some mustard and/or garlic.

Does this help?

I love to make a salad dressing that consists of:
olive oil, soy sauce, a little salt, two cloves of garlic, pressed.
Goes well with salads that have a strong flavor.

Or else:
dry mustard, one teaspoon of honey, a little oil and lemon juice to mix it up, and voilà.
Goes well with anything creamy, like cheese in the salad or avocado.

I make my own compliant mayo...which is nothing more than EVOO, egg yolk and lemon juice made in
a blender or food processor.  To any basic, compliant vinaigrette, I just add a bit of mayo plus
dry mustard so it's creamy.  And as a Teacher who can have cheese, your flavor palette widens....
You could literally make a blue cheese type dressing with a vinaigrette, mayo and an aged cheese.
Ranch too if you can have buttermilk.

I also like ume plum vinegar mixed with EVOO.

I add fresh-pressed garlic cloves to the above, and voila!

Mix up the lemon juice and try lime or grapefruit juice sometimes. Vary the spices. A favorite in my house is lemon juice, agave, olive oil, salt, and Italian Seasoning. Other times we'll put in onion powder, garlic powder, and basil, or onion, garlic, ginger, and a little ume plum vinegar.

Since you're an A, you can have yogurt, and that can be the base for creamy salad dressings. Thin yogurt with a little water and add spices.

Nut butters can also make salad dressing bases. Sesame paste (tahini) is thin enough all by itself, and you just need to add lemon, salt, and seasonings. But almond butter is thick and needs to be diluted if you're using it as a salad dressing.

All pepper is avoid for me, so I now use paprika which is diamond and gives a nice dimension. Just an idea...

Ruthiegirl,

I hear you and I love tahini.  Forgot about yogurt to make dressings creamier but a few people did mention it and it sounds good.

Thanks.

I have some Hungarian Paprika.  Might try that.

For creamy go for mayo based dressings making your own compliant mayo. I add curry powder to mine - tastes yummy.

I've made strawberry vinaigrette in the past by just pureeing strawberries, onions, garlic, basil, sea salt, lemon juice and olive oil together.  Came out good just doesn't taste good with tuna in my opinion which is what I put it on (there was tuna in the salad).
