Recipe For Salad Dressing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Help! Diagnosed 1 month ago with Celiac. I have found, through trial and error, that I am not tolerating dairy and soy. I have also found that I am not tolerating vinegars very well, at the moment. Does anyone have a recipe for a tasty sald dressing that does not contain any of these. Thanks so much!

Can you have eggs? You could make your own mayo with eggs and oil (canola or LIGHT Olive oil) and then add different spices to it. I have not tried it but someone posted a while back they do this and add dill to make their own ranch dressing.

Also in the past I have just drizzled olive oil and then squeezed a fresh lemon over the salad. I find this works if you have a salad with a lot of things that taste okay without dressing. It doesn't really do much if your salad is all lettuce.

Here's one of my favorite salad recipes that uses just oil and lemon for flavor: http://healthy.food.com/recipe/bok-choy-carrot-and-apple-slaw-94458

So if you can't have dressing, you may want to focus more on what else you can put in the salad to make it tasty. Some things I like--craisins, raisins, almonds, cashews, toasted walnuts, apples, pears, manadrin orange slices, avodaco. I usually choose a nut and fruit to add to the veggies.

You always need an acid in vinaigrettes so if you cannot have vinegars try orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit juice (and zest) with your neutral oil. You can also use some apple cider. You'll also need an emulsifying agent such as dijon mustard. Some finely minced shallots are also lovely in vinaigrettes. Add a touch of honey, agave or maple syrup or sugar. Some fresh herbs, S&P and voila - done! :)

Can you tolerate buttermilk powder? If so, you can use it to make many creamy dressings

Here's a recipe for Hommade Mayo that doesn't use any vinegar: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/home-made-mayonnaise/Detail.aspx

I want to try this myself so I started to search and then realized some mayo recipes have vinegar added. I have read that if you use olive oil it MUST be the LIGHT kind, not virgin or extra virgin or regular. Regular (or virgin) Olive oil tends to taste racid after it is emulsified to make mayo. You could also use canola oil.

Thank (all of) you so much. Needless to say, I'm not a natural born cook! I have to have a recipe for just about anything!

I'm not sure about the buttermilk powder. Haven't tried it. Thanks!

You might also test out powdered goats milk--some people can tolerate goats milk but not cow's milk. It tastes very similar to buttermilk. Before I became allergic and had to cut out all dairy I could tolerate goats milk products better than cow's milk. It works well for anything calling for buttermilk or sour milk. You wouldn't want to drink it straight or use it on your cereal but for bakign it's great if you can tolerate it.

Coconut milk or Vance's Dari Free (powder), two non dairy substitutes for dairy milk. Yogurt can be used (there are non dairy yogurts, too.)

But just putting e.v. olive oil in a cruet, and sprinkling that in salads, then adding a squeeze of juice should work, then sprinkling with salt. (try pure apple cider vinegar, it may agree with you better than the other kinds). Sometimes I add a tiny sprinkler of artificial sweetener.

You can, in a bowl, mix in some gluten free ketchup or mustard or mayonnaise, and spices or herbs - Spectrum is now selling a gluten free soy free mayo.
