Five Vegan Salad Dressings

Guys, I have bad news. When you eat a salad, you’re probably not actually making a healthy choice if you’re covering it in oily dressing! Instead of falling into that trap, order your dressing on the side at restaurants, and make these five oil-free vegan dressings for salads at home!

1. Avocado Dressing

Avocado is healthful, delicious, and a great food to incorporate into your everyday diet! This dressing is rich and satiating, and even works as a dip.

Ingredients:
1 avocado
small handful of cilantro
juice of 1 lime
small piece of serrano pepper
salt and pepper to taste
enough water to blend

Method:
Put all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and flecked with small pieces of cilantro. Yum!

2. Tahini Dressing

Tahini is a great source of healthy fat and is packed with protein! This dressing is bright yet rich, and livens up any salad.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons tahini
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/8 cup water

Method:
Finely mince the parsley.
Mix together all the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.

3. Chipotle Dressing

Nuts are one of the highest-protein components of a plant-based diet. They’re high in fat, too, but it’s good fat!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup cashews
1 tablespoon chipotle powder
salt to taste
2 teaspoon garlic powder
juice of 1/2 lime
enough water to blend

Method:
Soak the cashews in water for about two hours.
Blend all of the ingredients until smooth.

4. Teriyaki Dressing

Soy sauce tastes sooo good, but it’s high in sodium and has gluten. This dressing uses tamari instead, for a lower-sodium, gluten-free dressing!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup tamari (or substitute with soy sauce)
3 dates
1 green onion
juice of 1 lime
small piece of ginger
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Method:
Put all the ingredients in the blender, and blend until smooth. So simple and so delicious!

5. Mango Dressing

This dressing is one of my favorites! The mango is rich in fiber, vitamin C, and other essential vitamins.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup mango
1 tomato
1 green onion
2 large basil leaves

Method:
Blend everything until it’s a smooth, delicious dressing! (Don’t mind the color; I promise the taste is worth it!)
