Ugg, Soy Oil! Sick of it... Need Salad Dressing Recipes.

I have noticed something strange the last few weeks... Every time I buy a new salad dressing the soy oil makes me want to yack! I've thrown away THREE new bottles in the last two weeks.

I KNOW soy isn't good for me but I used to be able to at least EAT the dressing and like it. I just don't have very many good dressing recipes besides just good EVOO and vinegar.

I like creamy, fatty dressings and really LOVE (or used to!) Chipotle Ranch.

I don't know what it is that has set me off on the soy but it just all tastes so gross to me now, like each of them has gone rancid.

I have been eating less and less processed LC and I think dressings and condiments (LC/SF) are the last vestiges of chemicals left in my diet (besides occasional splenda.).

So I need dressing ideas.

I also have got to order some good oils to make homemade mayo..

What is your fav. dressing recipe?

I love:
Blue Cheese
Chipotle Ranch

I also want a recipe for a spicy, creamy Italian.

Please share!

of course mayonnaise is normally the basis for creamy dressings, in concept even if it's not added as a named ingredient, and mayonnaise is problematic too.

try adding your flavorings to sour cream and thinning it a bit. canned chipotles chopped and blended in would be great, or blue cheese, or mustard and sweetener, just about anything that normally makes a creamy dressing.

they won't last like commercial dressings, but so easy you can make just want you need for a day or two.

If ravenrose's idea of subbing sour cream for mayo doesn't work for you for a particular dressing, you can still try using sour cream in place of half the mayo, or for some part. You can use light, or pure, olive oil to make your own mayo (see Linda's mason jar mayo recipe--it really works if you've got a stick blender, and it's incomparably more convenient than using a food processor). That kind of olive oil at least doesn't have the high omega 6 fat comp that soybean oil does, but of course it's highly refined, that is to say, damaged--that's why subbing sour cream for whatever part part of mayo that will work is a great furth er improvement.

Here's a new one (for me anyway) you might consider:

Thousand Island Dressing:
In a bowl mix...
1/2 cup mayo
2 tbls Heinz reduced sugar ketchup
1 tbls sugar free sweet pickle relish (i.e. Vlassic)
1/4 tsp white vinegar
Dash onion powder, salt, pepper

P.S. Just add some Chipotle powder to my "Just Like Hidden Valley" (see Tilly's post above for link) for your Chipotle Ranch. I should try that, too.

In a pinch, the dry packaged original Ranch dressing where one adds mayo and buttermilk is very good. I do not like bottled drawings at all but this mix is excellent and tastes homemade and is fast. For a chipotle flavor, I would add one canned chipotle pepper, finely minced.

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...s-newbies.html There is a RANCH-STYLE SALAD DRESSING MIX in this thread, it is a dry mix you can put together.

Something you can add flavors to?
