Creamy Salad Dressing Recipes
Making this dressing is a great way to use up those half-empty containers of hummus. It has a thick, creamy quality thanks to the chickpeas and tahini but is totally dairy-free.
Creamy Garlic Vinaigrette
Creamy Sesame-Garlic Tofu Dressing
This versatile dressing from F&W's Kay Chun is delicious on anything from salad to grilled meat and fish.
Creamy Balsamic, Chive & Greek Yogurt Vinaigrette
This vinaigrette is made lusciously thick and creamy with a couple tablespoons of Greek yogurt, whose flavor is great alongside lots of garlic and balsamic vinegar.
Creamy Feta Vinaigrette
Instead of tossing chunks of feta into her salad or crumbling the cheese on top of cooked vegetables, Melissa Rubel Jacobson purees it right into a vinaigrette. This makes the dressing smooth and luscious and ensures a little bit of tang in almost every bite.
Blue-Cheese Tarragon Dressing
Roasted Eggplant and Cauliflower Salad with Tahini Green Goddess Dressing
A mix of roasted and fresh vegetables, layered into a big dish and topped with watercress, makes a striking presentation here. The dressing, made with yogurt, tahini, anchovies and herbs, is the perfect topper.
This creamy dressing is perfect for anyone who is skittish about the raw eggs in a classic Caesar salad; Melissa Rubel Jacobson enriches her piquant version of the dressing with mayonnaise instead.
Serve this classic ranch dip with whatever vegetables are crisp and in season: radicchio and sliced fennel in the winter; radishes and blanched asparagus in the spring; or carrots, snap peas and cherry tomatoes in summer.
