This is the one I teach at McDougall program and use all the time -great for potato salad with lots of dijon. Vit C makes it nice and tart – more like a sour cream than a mayo.

Today I whipped together ingredients that were in my fridge to create a filling vegan salad dressing and I really liked the results!
Dressing will last for up to one week in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.
This recipe was adapted from “Tofu Cookery” by Louise Hagler. The oil has been omitted from an otherwise wonderful recipe and the quantity of tofu changed for convenience.
I like creamy salad dressings that seem full of fat so since we can’t have that “fat” (nasty word)–here is my salad dressing:
I love this recipe. I follow the variation at the bottom to make a cheddar “cheese sauce” and pour it over baked potatoes topped with broccoli for a great no-fat meal. Another thing I do is make a nacho cheese dip by following the variation, but instead of using non-dairy milk, I use Rotel spicy tomatoes. Goes great with baked tortilla chips!
An easy recipe for making your own practically instant broth.
1/2 cup fatfree vegan mayo (Nayonnaise or homemade)
1 Tbs. cider vinegar…
This recipe is for an oil substitute for use in salad dressings. The thing I miss about oil in my salad dressings is the “mouth feel”, or the texture. This is not perfect and doesn’t always do the trick, but I love using this to cut the fat in some of my favorite dressings. This recipe is from “The High Road to Health” by Lindsay Wagner. (Remember that old book?)
Tastes just like regular italian salad dressing.
1 1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. dry mustard…
1 Package Silken-style FirmTofu (in aseptic packaging, such as Mori-Nu)
3 individual chipotles in adobo (beware: these are very spicy! use fewer if less heat is desired.)…
2 stalks chopped celery
1 clove garlic…
Here’s quick, easy and very healthy salad dressing that I just invented today.
A side note: I started out making this with Cuisine Perel’s Spicy Pecan vinegar (available from Dr. Fuhrman’s website and elsewhere). However, that got to be very expensive considering the amount of this I use in a week. So I started making my own pecan-flavored vinegar using pecan extract and seasoned rice vinegar. But seasoned rice vinegar is loaded with sugar and salt, so I began using less of it and adding cider vinegar. The moral of this story is that you can use all Spicy Pecan vinegar or all seasoned rice vinegar (just use more vinegar instead of the water).
- Homestyle Lentil SoupEvery time my parents come to visit, I tend to make the same dishes. My mother usually requests a stir-fry, and my daughter, seeing this special occasion as a opportunity to have her favorite dish, asks for lasagna. Sometimes I cook up a Southern meal of lima beans and greens or a vegetable soup, but […]
- Happy Tooth Visualization (and Piled High McDougall Style Hash Browns)I interrupt my food dehydrator love fest to bring you a report from my dental odyssey. Instead of the gorey details or the latest scientific debate on what the best procedures are, I’d like to share something that came to me almost a month ago, as I was walking with Romeo and mulling over the […]
