:chef: Oil-Free Salad Dressing recipes wanted.
 
So... I have been slowly transitioning to a WFPB vegan diet as described in Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live.

Eating lots of salads. So far I have just been buying oil-free salad dressings in the store. But I would like to save some money and start making my own.

I know I could just search the internet and find some. But I'm pretty new to this forum so I thought I would check out the expertise here and see if I could get some suggestions. Mostly looking for easy to make recipes.

Thanks in advance.

Balsamic vinegar is a pretty good salad dressing, all by itself. It's so popular that even the regular supermarket brands are selling it. You can get Pompeian at Target and similar stores.

Flavorful Salad Dressings Without the Oil!

http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj99may/99maysalad.htm


by Mary Clifford, RD

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Early Romans are said to have dressed salads only with salt. In fact,
the word "salad" means "something salted" in Latin. But early salads
were slightly different than the mixed raw greens that we would
recognize as salads today. "Modern" salads date back only to about the
Middle Ages. Cookbooks of that time often refer only to dressings of
oil, vinegar, and salt, with the emphasis on the oil. That fits
perfectly with an old Spanish proverb that advises anyone making a salad
to be a spendthrift for oil, a miser for vinegar, a statesman for salt,
and a madman for mixing. But salad dressings don't have to be
overpowered with oil to add flavor. A peek in your kitchen cupboard will
likely find plenty of savory ingredients to adorn any salad. Here are a
few ideas to get you started; these dressings are easily doubled or
tripled.

Many vegan registered dieticians say that avoiding oil is healthy, but that some source of fat from vegan whole foods is still needed to absorb the nutrients from greens.

For example, dressings made out of avocados, tahini, blended nuts, blended seeds etc.

I highly recommend this book, more vegan sauces and salad dressings than you can shake a stick at and plenty of practical tips for how to throw meals together with them
