creamy-style vegan salad dressing suggestions?

  • n

Made a delicious vegan creamy lemon salad dressing tonight that is inspiring me to try other creamy vegan dressings. Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. You could try a vegan ranch or Caesar dressing.

      I made a nice miso-ginger dressing to serve with artichokes a couple of days ago.

        thanks--I'm specifically looking for recipes. Do you have any? Thanks again!

          Oh She Glows, Fat Free Vegan and Choosing Raw have some dressings that use cashews or avocados for creamy salad dressings.

      2. I like mixing some silken tofu with vinegar and whatever herbs I have handy, plus salt and pepper for a quick, easy, healthy, AND vegan dressing.

        1. Avocados make beautiful dressings...very creamy and silky due to the healthy fats. Haven't tried it with lemon but usually balsamic vinegar works nicely.

          Something like this: http://localfoods.about.com/od/saladd...

            wow--looks INCREDIBLE. Thank you!

              I just use a fork to mash up the *ripe* avocado...you could use a food processor but it seems unnecessary...the mashed avocado breaks down nicely with any acid, I've noticed.

              Love tahini dressing! I will have to try this one.

                I was going to suggest a tahini dressing. Love them all!

              2. I am obsessed with Trader Joe's Goddess dressing which is vegan. Satisfies the creamy dressing need. It also have tahini.. you could try looking for a recipe for Vegan Goddess dressing if you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby.

                  That's Annie's Goddess dressing sold under Trader Joe's label, I'm pretty sure, and you can buy Annie's dressings at many supermarkets and natural foods stores.
