Vegan Salad Dressing Choices At Target
1. Brianna's Home Style Real French Vinaigrette
Besides being creamy and delicious, the wonderful thing about French dressing is that it's usually vegan. Brianna's Home Style Real French Vinaigrette is a fairly traditional approach to vinaigrette as it's mostly canola oil and vinegar, though it's got plenty of garlic and spices to shake things up. If you're grilling up tofu or tempeh, you can even use it as a marinade.
2. Kraft Creamy Italian Dressing
Yeah, we were surprised about this one, too. It looks so creamy that you figure it must have dairy in it, but it actually doesn't. Soybean oil is the primary ingredient. It's a little sweeter than classic Italian dressing, which vegans who don't necessarily enjoy a vinegary bite might appreciate.
3. Market Pantry Zesty Italian Dressing
Target brand Market Pantry can help you out if what you're craving is something piquant. The Zesty Italian Dressing is recommended as a marinade as well as a salad dressing, so it's perfect for anything from tofu to pasta salad. And zesty it is with vinegar as its first ingredient plus garlic and spices.
4. Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
Balsamic vinaigrette is a salad dressing staple that goes well with fruits, veggies, greens and grains. Newman's Own Organics Balsamic Vinaigrette is vegan with non-GMO, organic ingredients right down to the spices. It does separate, so you'll need to give it a shake before you use it.
5. Marie's Blueberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Summer salads are lovely with fruity dressings. This one is fragrant and sweet with antioxidant-powered pomegranate and blueberry juice concentrates added to an oil and vinegar base. It's gluten free with no preservatives, too. Combine it with bitter dandelion greens and radicchio for a good contrast of flavors in your salad.
6. Makoto Ginger Dressing
Makoto Ginger Dressing is stellar as a salad dressing, a dip or a marinade. It's spicy from the ginger and hot sauce with a savory and sweet vegetable blend of celery, carrots and tomato paste. There's little you can't do with it. We've tried it with crisp lettuce and crunchy cucumber salad, dusted with crushed peanuts as a dip for vegan spring rolls, and drizzled over vegan avocado sushi. Yum.
7. Salad Girl Crisp Apple Maple Dressing
Apples and maple syrup partner up to create this New England-inspired salad dressing. It's plant-based and natural, using real food ingredients. Instead of cane sugar, it lets organic maple syrup add the extra sweetness. This is a good choice for a healthier salad dressing.
8. Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing
This famous French-type dressing has vegan tomato soup as its number one ingredient, giving it a thick, hearty texture. Since it's so tomato-heavy, it can be turned into barbecue sauce for smothered cauliflower. It isn't preservative-free, but if you love this dressing, you know that it's vegan.
9. Food Network Kitchen Inspirations Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette
When you make vegan taco salad layered with avocado, beans and corn, this is the dressing to top it with. It's loaded with fresh, zingy cilantro and lime. As a vinaigrette, it's got natural tang, which blends seamlessly with the jalapeno and cilantro. The flavors really pop in this dressing.
10. Bolthouse Farms Organic Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
Bolthouse Farms makes a solid raspberry vinaigrette, that ever-popular salad dressing from restaurant menus to home pantries. It contains only real flavorants and no preservatives, so score for the health-conscious lifestyle. It's sweetened mostly with white grape juice, though it does have plenty of raspberry character with raspberry juice concentrate. We find it delightful over a spinach and mixed berry salad.
