Oh Boy, Salad!
Very Good 4.4/5

This was my great-grandfather's favorite salad. He didn't like lettuce, so when he saw this salad coming out, he always said, "Oh boy, salad!" thus the name.

Tahini-Lemon Dressing
Very Good 4.2/5

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing.

Vegan Ranch Dressing
Good 3.8/5
(8 ratings)

I love ranch dressing, but it's so heavy! Here's a lighter version that also happens to be vegan. You can substitute regular low-fat mayonnaise and skim milk for the coconut milk and vegan mayo.

Hot & Sweet Rainbow Slaw
Very Good 4.2/5

Creamy cole slaw pairs well with fried chicken, but who needs all that mayo? This one uses Greek yogurt and a healthier mayo, plus a few other secret ingredients.

Awesome alternative to mayo-based dressings for coleslaw and other veggies. The combination sounds impossible, but believe me, it's MAGIC. I like to have some dressing on hand all the time.
