The Big List of No-oil Salad Dressings


Don't let anyone tell you there aren't options when it comes to no-oil salad dressings!

A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who contributed to this list. I am amazed, awed and inspired buy all of you. Anyone want to contribute more? Send 'em in to healthygirlskitchen@gmail.com and I'll post a second list next week.

Please note: many of these dressings are not fat free and include healthy sources of fat such as nuts, seeds, avocado or tofu. If you have a heart condition, Dr. Esselstyn recommends removing all nuts, seeds and avocado from your diet. But there are still plenty of salad dressing options, as evidenced by our list below!


Almond Ginger Dressing
adapted from a recipe from drfuhrman.com
makes about 2 1/2 cups

1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1 cup water
4 tablespoons tahini or unhulled sesame seeds
6 dates, pitted
2 small cloves garlic or 1 medium clove garlic
1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled

Place all ingredients into a high powered blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add more water if a thinner consistency is desired.


Chef AJ's Husband's Favorite No-oil Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 cup of Balsamic Vinegar (4% acidity preferred)*
4 Tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast
3 Tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce, coconut aminos or tamari (Trader Joes brand has only 465 mg of sodium per tablespoons)
3 tablespoons of date syrup (or date equivalent) -could use maple syrup
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend. Refrigerate any unused portion.

*Using a good balsamic makes all the difference in this recipe.Most balsamic vinegars have at least 6% acidity and they are very strong and sharp. Napa Valley Naturals Grand Reserve, available at Whole Foods has only 4% acidity and it is naturally sweeter and less sharp.


Engine 2 Inspired Orange Hummus Dressing
It's not the exact recipe out of The Engine 2 Diet Book, but I think it's better!

3 Tbsp plain Hummus
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp orange juice
1 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated on a microplane
1 tsp maple syrup

Whisk the ingredients together in a bowl.

HGK Note: Just a reminder, you can keep fresh ginger (in a ziploc baggie) and orange juice concentrate (just spoon out what you need and reseal the container) in your freezer at all times, which I do. And hummus, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and mustard are all staples in any Healthy Girl's kitchen. That makes this dressing a snap to throw together without having to stress about making a trip to the grocery store.


Cashew Currant Dressing 
adapted from a recipe from drfuhrman.com
Serves: 2-4

1/4 cup raw cashews or 2 tablespoons raw cashew butter
1/3 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1 peeled apple, sliced
2 tablespoons dried currants or raisins

Blend cashews or cashew butter with soy milk and sliced apples in a high powered blender until smooth. Add the currants and blend well.

1 large roasted red pepper

Lori's Red Pepper Dressing

1 jar roasted red peppers (with liquid)
1 can artichoke hearts (with liquid)
1/2 c. fresh basil
2 tbs. red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbs. raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
salt and pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients and enjoy :) 

Keeps for at least 1 week in the refrigerator.

1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Juice of 1 lemon, lime or orange
1 Tbsp agave nectar, honey or maple syrup

Lindsey and Danny's No-oil Dressing

I don't have exact measurements/ratios, we just go by the bottle we make it in. but we use tahini (the kind without water added), apple cider vinegar, tomato paste(no salt added), and season with garlic and onion powder, and a little basil and oregano - so yum!


Sharon's Japanese Exchange Student Dressing
"It's DELICIOUS!"

Equal parts:
Crushed onion
Rice Vinegar
Sweet Saki
Soy Sauce


The Healthy Librarian's Creamy Chipotle Dressing
http://www.happyhealthylonglife.com/

10.5 ounces of Mori-Nu Silken firm low-fat tofu
1/2 tsp. nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (I wanted this to be easy, so I used Santa Cruz's bottled organic real lemon juice)   Note:  I bet lime juice would be good, too!
1 1/2 teaspoons agave, or brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 dried chipotle  (I found this at my regular grocery store--if you're "heat"-sensitive, start with a half, & then add more.
3 tablespoons of chopped shallots  (I've really grown to love this delicate onion-like veg)
1/2 teaspoon of salt (or not)
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of paprika (I think this is for color---I also made it with smoked paprika, which makes it spicier--but we liked it that way.  But, I'm just warning you....)
1 fresh garlic clove, minced

Put everything into your blender or Vita-Mix and blend until it's all smooth.  Taste it--and adjust the seasoning.  If you don't like things too hot, use less chipotle to start, taste, and then add more.

This dressing keeps in the refrigerator, covered well, for a week.  Serve chilled.


Kristy's Basic Dressing
http://readyin5weeks.blogspot.com/

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon grainy mustard (get mustard with no sugar)
1 packet Splenda or other sweetener
salt
pepper

Shake well or whisk up.

For a change I will sometimes combine balsamic and red wine, this makes it lighter. I also make it with white wine vinegar. It's delicious on salads or vegetables, almost anything!


Mandy's Spicy Vinaigrette
"Here is one I got from my favorite beach on the Florida panhandle "George's at Aly's Beach". They did not give me the measurements, just the ingredients. So these are all to taste, but the way I like it! You can add more kick if you want!"
Prep time -- No time! Maybe 1 minute :)

1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Tbsp Honey
1/2 - 3/4 tsp "Chili Garlic Sauce" by Huy Fong Vietnamese Foods (can buy at Walmart, huyfong.com, Amazon.com, etc.)

Whisk together ingredients. Adjust more chili garlic sauce to taste.

1/2 cup salad vinegar (I use rice vinegar)
1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup water
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 tsp. dried sage
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

juice of one lime (2+ Tbsp, and you could even use more)
4 Tbsp mellow white miso
6 dates pitted or 1/4 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce or Tamari or Nama Shoyu
1 cup water

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until creamy.


Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing
"The original recipe from http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/ calls for some oil, but I just skipped it and never missed it (i made it both ways and honestly can't tell the difference)! This is a great starting point for other flavor combinations. I've made a southwest version that was wonderful on a taco salad." Megan in Portlandmakes about 2 cups

15 ounces silken tofu, drained/squeezed dry
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 tsp celery seed
3/4 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp fine black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 Tbsp maple syrup - grade b (start with 1 Tbsp and add to taste, I found 2 was too sweet)
salt to taste

Place all ingredients into blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Me Again's Fruity Orange Dressing
"This really compliments a salad that includes the orange slices and a few raisins, plus what ever else you might like in your salad"

Supreme an orange for salad, then squeeze out all juice from remaining orange into small bowl. Add equal amount (+/-) raspberry vinegar or rice vinegar, equal amount (+/-) water, some minced onion or shallot, a few shakes of Mrs Dash seasoning, and a small amount of your favorite sweetener. Whisk together.


Cooking in Color's Simple No-oil Dressing
http://nanetteblanchard.blogspot.com/

Equal parts Dijon or stone-ground mustard, agave nectar, and unseasoned rice wine vinegar

Cooking in Color's Catalina Dressing
http://nanetteblanchard.blogspot.com/

1/4 c. ketchup
2 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. minced onion, 1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce (I use Annie's Naturals Organic Worcestershire sauce)
sprinkling of black pepper
optional: apple juice

Blend this up until smooth and add about 1/4 c. water or until desired thickness. I occasionally make this sweeter by adding some apple juice.


Piquant Dressing
from Jennifer Raymond's vegetarian cookbook Fat-Free and Easy
"Here's one my DH likes - it is . Taste it for sweetness - sometimes I add some agave nectar or maple syrup." Nanette Blanchard
Makes about 1/3 cup

1/4 c. seasoned rice vinegar (I use unseasoned)

Cooking in Color's Smoky Tomato Dressing

1/4 c white balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic
several drops of liquid smoke
salt and pepper to taste

Blend this until smooth, adding water to dilute until desired thickness. (Extra sweetener might be needed depending on the sweetness of the ketchup.)

If too thick dilute it with a little water or orange juice to desired consistency.

The recipe indicates no tahini hummus for a fat free recipe but regular hummus can be used.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease's Hummus Salad Dressing
"My favorite dressing of all time is the Hummus Salad Dressing in Dr. Esselstyn's book 'Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.' It goes so well with green lettuce salads, any other salads (tomato, cucumber, artichoke,celery, etc) and rice or grains salad. Tangy and delicious! It sticks well to lettuce leaves. I always have a container with some of this dressing in my fridge." Jos
Makes 1/4 cup

2 heaping tablespoons no tahini hummus
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or vinegar of choice
1/2 teaspoon mustard of choice

Mix and use or refrigerate for later use.


Chef Aj's House Dressing
courtesy of Chef Aj, http://www.chefajshealthykitchen.com/

1/2 cup water
4 tablespoons tahini
4 tablespoons Dijon or stone ground mustard
4 tablespoons sodium tamari or raw coconut aminos
6 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
8 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon date syrup or maple syrup

Place all ingredients into blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Jane Esselstyn's 3-2-1 Dressing
 "It’s so easy and good and you can make lots of variations." Penny Urwiler

3 Tbsp vinegar
2 Tbsp mustard
1 Tbsp agave (HGK would sub in maple syrup)

Appetite for Reduction's Basic Dressing
by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
"I’ve made this with different vinegars and mustards, always good." Penny Urwiler

¼ cup cashew pieces
2 Tbsp chopped shallot
½ cup water
¼ cup vinegar
2 tsp Dijon
1 tsp agave (HGK would sub in maple syrup)
¾ tsp salt
A few pinches of pepper

Blend 5 minutes in blender or until very smooth.


Tom Fronczak's Fruity No-oil Dressing

1/4 cup blueberries (or raspberries, strawberries, peaches etc etc)
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
4 whole dates (I prefer dates to sweeten, but you could use agave, or maple syrup)
1 small shallot
1 T sunflower seeds (Dr Fuhrman tells us some fat in a salad aids nutrient absorption)
splash of water
Dash of some fresh black pepper

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend it up and enjoy! Refrigerates well for 4-5 days.

Appetite for Reduction's Green Goddess Garlic Dressing
"I would have been happy taking a bath in it. Delicious." Ally G

2-3 average sized cloves of garlic
1/2 C fresh chives
1/2 cup fresh parsley
3 T tahini
2 T nutritional yeast
1 T miso
1/3 C water
2 T fresh lemon juice
1/2 t salt

Pulse the garlic, the chives, and the parsley in a food processor to chop everything up. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides a few times. Now adjust to your liking. More salt, more garlic, you can thin the dressing with a 1 or 2 T of water. Note, it will thicken a bit as it's refrigerated, so if it appears thin, don't worry.


Very Benevolent Caesar Salad Dressing
"I've been making this dressing for two years now, and I'm ready for a change, so I'm excited to see your list! I got this from Miyoko Schinner when I attended a five-day McDougall course out in Santa Rosa. It was heaven.

Anyway, I'll write the dressing as she created it (omitting the oil of course). But I sub out the almond meal for wheat germ—it's a perfectly great substitute, you don't miss the fatty almond meal at all (but it is wicked tasty with it...be warned!! )." Mairead (a.k.a. chickpeafreak)

2 tablespoons almond meal (or wheat germ)
3 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water

Combine almond meal, garlic, mustard and nutritional yeast to make a paste, then whisk in the remaining ingredients.

Jen's Sweet & Spicy Dressing
"This is almost fat free. This sweet dressing helps cut the bitterness of greens and was an instant family favorite."

2 tsp Major Grey's Mango Chutney
1.5 tsp Apricot Jam
1.5 tsp Dijon Mustard
1.5 tsp Real Hellman's Mayo
1 Tbsp almond or soy milk to thin

Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk.

HGK Note: To make this "oil-free," try substituting 1 1/2 tsp raw cashew butter for the mayo.

Jen's Easy/Out of a Jar Dressing

Trader Joe's or Whole Food's Brand 365 Salsa Verde or
Green Mountain Gringo Salsa

Use on taco-style salad.

Chef Aj's Orange Sesame Miso
from her book Unprocessed
It is so easy!!!

4 peeled oranges
1/2 cup sesame seeds
2 tablespoons low sodium miso

Put everything in blender and whiz! Especially good on kale. Massage it in!

Diane’s Balsamic Vinaigrette
This will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks if it lasts that long

1 cup water
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
*1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
3-4 cloves raw garlic
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1-2 tablespoons Agave Nectar (I use 1 tbsp because I like it more on the tart side)
**1/2 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum (the key to making it gel like an oil wood)

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until very smooth and emulsified.  Taste for sweetness and add more agave to taste.  Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  Dressing will thicken as it chills.

*Use the best quality red wine vinegar you can find for the best flavored dressing.  I (Diane) use Organic Cabernet Sauvignon wine vinegar by Kimberely.  You will find them online at http://www.kimberleywinevinegars.com/ They are very nice folks and you can get it shipped directly.  I buy 5-6 bottles at a time as I don’t want to run out.  But you can use any good quality red wine vinegar you can find as well.

**Xanthan or guar gums are excellent thickeners for oil-free dressings because they thicken without heat as the dressing chills in the refrigerator.

dj said...

I'm new to vegan, so I'm just using a good quality red wine vinegar right now. I always have frozen oj and apple concentrate in the freezer, mostly for baking. I combined a little vinegar and frozen oj. It was tart, so I added a little honey. I'm thinking I could dilute it a little with water. The key to good eats is the sauce, dressing, or spices, isn't it :-)

Jeff said...

This such an awesome list, there's no possible way to get into a rut of making the same dressing over and over! One of my favorite go-to's is just lemon juice and chopped thyme.

Dana W said...

I can't tell you how happy I am to come across this post!!! I recently cut out most oil from my diet and I'm having such a hard time finding salad dressing that actually tastes good. I bought no oil dressing from whole foods but did not like the taste AT ALL. I can't wait to try these! thank you! thank you! : )

Noah Berkowitz said...

I think I love your blog spot page already because of all the healthy salad recipe you had posted. Going to add your link on my bookmark.

Michelle said...

This list rocks my socks! Thanks for compiling and sharing. I've been talking about the oil-free dressings Whole Foods Market is now offering, but they don't have them on their website and a lot of people I know don't have access to WFM. This list makes oil-free dressings within everyone's reach. No excuse not to try one of the options.

Clove oil is aphrodisiac in nature and hence serves as an excellent stress reliever. It has a stimulating effect on the mind and removes mental exhaustion and fatigue. When taken internally, in appropriate amounts, it refreshes the mind. Clove oil also induces sleep and is helpful to insomnia patients. It is useful for treating mental problems such as loss of memory, depression and anxiety.

Clove oil when mixed with salt, and applied on the forehead, gives a cooling effect and helps in getting relief from headache.

The clove tree is an evergreen that grows to a height ranging from 8–12 m, having large leaves and sanguine flowers in numerous groups of terminal clusters. The flower buds are at first of a pale color and gradually become green, after which they develop into a bright red, when they are ready for collecting. Cloves are harvested when 1.5–2 cm long, and consist of a long calyx, terminating in four spreading sepals, and four unopened petals which form a small ball in the center.


Thanks

Great list of recipes! I Just finished a lecture by Fuhrman in school and he was terrific. Been wanting to develop oil free dressings and this is a great place to start experimenting! Just passed this link on to my best friend who is trying to eat healthier and lose weight.Thanks. Great post.

Wendy said...

Glad you found this list Sally! I hope you share whatever amazingness you can create from these ideas.

Thanks for this great list. I have been looking for oil free recipes for a while. So glad to have found this post.

Thanks!

Very nice. Waiting for new recipes. i am also interested to innovate some new dishes you pay take a look at Pakistani Recipes and comment

Anonymous said...

Are there any store bought salad dressings that I can purchase and take with me when we travel?

Wendy said...

I'm sure there are, I just don't know of them offhand. I do really like all of the dressings by the brand Galeos, but they are neither 100% vegan or oil-free. What they are is very low in calories and extremely tasty, so I use them when I don't have a homemade dressing ready in time. If I find out anything, I will let you know.

Healthnut Nutrition said...

These all look amazingggtry! I wanna try them all! I recently posted a dressing of my own on my blog... it does contain some oil but it is equally just as good without it:)

Since when is oil "unhealthy"? Corn oil is not healthy but extra virgin olive oil can offer health benefits (refer to the Mayo Clinic site) however it does add calories so use less oil and more vinegar. Many of the recipes presented here add calories via sugars from maple syrup, agave, orange juice, etc. Having said that a number of these recipes do look tasty.

Anonymous said...

Good stuff, but for a "no oil dressing" post... you still included sesame oil in a lot of the Asian dressings?
