5 New Fun Salad Dressings

View recipe

Bowls are all the rage right now and with good reason, they healthy, delicious and so versatile. The best part is that you can customize them to your liking and nutritional needs. By switching up your dressing you can create an entirely new dish, which is why I wanted to share my 5 favourite new dressing recipes.

In my new plant-based cookbook I share my favourite dressings which include:

  1. Lemon Tahini
  2. Vegan Sour Cream
  3. Oil & Vinaigrette
  4. Cashew Cream
  5. Southwest

A lot of you have been requesting more dressing recipes so I have been having a blast in the kitchen testing out new creations. These dressings are thicker and creamier so they are perfect for a warm winter bowl. They are also vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.

Here are my top 5 new favs:
