Just 4 ingredients, less than 5 minutes to make, this everyday oil-free salad dressing is my go-to! With a creamy, tangy, and zesty flavor, this easy to make dressing will also keep fresh in the fridge for a week! This simple dressing can go toe-to-toe with any vinaigrettes, vegan caesar dressings, or balsamic vinegar. It is the BEST way to amp up any salad! This dressing works wonderfully on mixed greens, but I also love to drizzle it onto wraps, grain bowls, pasta salad, beans, or any other dish that needs a little extra oomph! Or you can even use it as a dip (or sauce) and dip your favorite vegetables like baby carrots or cucumbers. This is bound to become one of your favorite vegan salad dressings.
I like to add a side salad to most of my meals. Even though I cook with small amounts of oil, I'm not a huge fan of dredging my salads in it. When you take a super nutritionally dense low-calorie dish such as a salad and then pour even just a tablespoon of oil on top, it quickly adds a ton of processed fat and calories without adding much flavour. Personally, I'm ok with oilier salad dressings on occasion, but for the most part, I like to keep my salads light, fresh, filled with veggies and fresh herbs, and healthy with this super simple lemony, oil free dressing.
Skip buying expensive store-bought dressings, oil-free salad dressing recipes like this will change your life! Just shake this dressing up in less than 5 minutes and you have the perfect dressing for all your green munching needs!
How to make My everyday oil-free salad dressing:
There is a reason this oil-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan salad dressing is my go-to: it's super simple! Just add the lemon juice, dijon mustard, nutritional yeast, and agave (or maple syrup) to a jar or bowl, and shake it or whisk it up! I like to use these small jars, but you can also use a leftover jam jar. Pour over your favourite salad greens or store in the fridge to use later.
