Some dressings without vinegar include green goddess dressing, avocado dressing, low-fat yogurt honey mint dressing, thousand island dressing and honey lemon dressing. Most of these dressings rely on lemon juice for their acid.
Green goddess dressing is made from mayonnaise, chopped scallions, fresh basil leaves, the juice of two lemons, chopped garlic, anchovy paste, salt, pepper and sour cream.
Paula Deen's avocado dressing is made of one large avocado, lemon juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, chopped onion, minced garlic, salt and cayenne pepper.
Low-fat yogurt honey mint dressing is made of plain, low-fat yogurt, honey, unsweetened pineapple juice and fresh, chopped mint leaves. Thousand island dressing consists of mayonnaise, ketchup, sweet pickle relish, salt and pepper.
Honey lemon dressing is made of fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, chopped thyme, extra virgin olive oil, salt and freshly ground pepper.
In most cases, the main ingredients are simply whisked together before adding salt and pepper. The dressings are then poured over a salad made simply of Bibb or Romaine lettuce or a salad with lettuce, tomatoes and other additions. However, most of the ingredients in Paula Deen's avocado dressing are put into a blender to make them smooth, and then the dressing is chilled before use.
