Salads are one of the greatest and easiest ways to get your veggies and greens in your diet. They are pretty simple to put together until you get to the dressing. Often people don’t know that this is where it can all go wrong. I see it quite often that someone makes an amazing salad full of all the vibrant colors and then puts a dressing that has all these unwanted highly processed ingredients. This makes me so sad. So I thought I’d share with you some of my transitional dressing recipes you can use that are healthy, vegan, and super simple to make. Here are my three simple Vegan Mayo salad dressing recipes that take less than 2 minutes to make and taste AMAZING!

3 Simple Vegan Mayo Salad Dressing Recipes

One of the brands we recommend often to people to use when transitioning into a more plant-powered lifestyle is the Follow Your Heart brand. They make many different plant-based alternatives with ingredient labels that don’t cause confusion and I have loved every single one of them. I often use the Follow Your Heart Vegenaise, not just as a sandwich spread but as a base for many of our favorite dressings.

Garlic & Herb Dressing

This one is the one we use most because we love fresh herbs in our salads and mixing it in with a dressing is so much easier than trying to chop it up. I will use either cilantro or parsley for this recipe and often throw the whole bunch, stems and all, into the blender.

It’s not just for salads, use it as a dip for veggies and/or sandwich spread to give it a more garlic and herb flavor. You can also play with the recipe and add more garlic to give it more spice, but just keep in mind your breath :-)

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Now if there was anything I’d miss, especially with my salads was the Ranch dressing. Yes, I know it’s bad but I use to consider myself a ranch connoisseur, how silly is that? Now that I’m more focused on health and clean plant-based eating that’s not something that I enjoy anymore. Luckily I created this recipe and I was shocked by how close it really is to the flavor. It’s a little more liquid than I would prefer but besides that it’s perfect.

Thousand Island Vegan Dressing

Thousand Island dressing wasn’t something I was always into but after meeting my husband and his unique food-combining skills, I learned to love it. We use this dressing with our regular house salads and to dip cauliflower in. Don’t ask me how this tastes good but it does. My husband use to eat it as a kid and got all of us to eat it. What can I say? If it’s another way to get more veggies in I’ll take it. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
