View Full Version : Salad Dressing ???

Does anyone have a salad dressing made without nuts, seeds, or avocados?
I don't have an exact recipe for this but went to a restaurant here in town last week that includes a raw food plate on its menu. The dressing I had was a mango lime vinagarette. So tasty! I would think raw apple cider vinegar, some mango, some lime juice, perhaps a touch of salt would about do it.

Allow some chopped sundried tomatos, some dehydreted finely chopped chilli and some garlic to steep in Olive oil for at least a day and it is terific as a salad dressing

1/2 lemon juice
1 sm. onion
sea salt to taste
Mexican spice/Cumin/garlic to taste
This is my favorite dressing.

I also have a nice one with avocadoes, but, since you specifically asked for one without, here's a good one, too. It's very simple. You may wish to adjust the proportions after you've made it a few times to adapt for your taste.
1 part olive oil
1 part Nama Shoyu
1 part agave nectar
I usually add cumin or ginger & garlic, or sometimes all three, but, alone, it's great, though strong with the Nama Shoyu. If you wish to avoid Nama Shoyu (as I do now) you can use lemon or lime juice or add some Celtic sea salt to substitute for that salty taste.

Oh, sport. That sounds so good. I have company coming later this month, and I'm gathering some recipes to make them some special things. That's going on the list!!

to your tastes, mix together:
apple cider vinegar
lemon or lime
basil, oregano, &thyme
celtic sea salt
fresh ground pepper
if you want it a little spicy add crushed red pepper
even my non-raw, non veg*an fiance likes this dressing on his salads. :p

The Natalia Rose book has an excellent dressing called Golden Elixir (it's a gold color). I can't recall exactly what the proportions are but it has:
We love it.

the main reason nuts or seeds are used in salad dressing is as a binder to hold the mixture from separation.
I only add nuts or seeds when I am going to use the dressing later, or keep it for a while.
So, go on ahead and make any dressing recipe, just leave that outta' there.
