Oil Free Vegan Thousand Island Dressing

Oil Free Vegan Thousand Island Dressing

Jill Dalton
Thousand Island Dressing has been one of America’s favorite dressings for many years. You may know it as the sauce that gives the McDonald’s Big Mac hamburger is zingy tang. We have created an Oil Free Plant Based Vegan version that is delicious and nutritious without using mayo or ketchup, which is the standard base of this dressing. Instead of using oil, we chose to use a combination of hemp seeds and sunflower seeds which are healthy whole food fats that are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals.

Thank you for your recipes. I made your ranch dressing today, a double batch because it is so good. Looking forward to trying your thousand Island.

Thank You!!! My wife has tried many recipes, however this is the first salad dressing that we found that is actually tasty. We’ve only been eating WFPB for 3 months, now we both can start eating more salads.

Caesar is my favorite—would love to see that one if you can!! Thanks!!

I’d love to see a Caesar Salad dressing that isn’t made with fattening cashews. I know I made a yummy one several years back that was made with wheat germ but unfortunately I’ve misplaced that recipe. Thanks, and keep your great videos coming.

Hi Jill! What can I substitute the dill relish with?

Ciara February 6, 2021 - 10:56 am

I used 3 smaller pickle gurkins, worked quiet well

Amy February 3, 2020 - 2:46 am

Hi Jill,
What could we use as a substitute for the rolled oats?

Jill Dalton February 6, 2020 - 10:13 am

Hi Amy,
You could use cashews

What brand of dill relish do you use? Only one I found contained sugar

Jill Dalton June 14, 2020 - 9:08 am

Sorry Samantha, I don’t remember what brand it is. I bought it from Whole Foods and honestly there might have been a little sugar in it. You don’t use much relish in the recipe so the tiny amount of sugar that might be there is not to worry about.

I’m looking for a Russian dressing, probably similar to the thousand island. I love everything you make, and tell all my friends, vegan or not! Thanks for all you do to help us stay healthy.

I grew up on homemade 1000 Island and was always told that the pickles and the chopped boiled eggs were the “islands”. I never heard the New York story. Looking forward to trying this.

So happy I found your Thousand Island recipe – the flavor is amazing!! And so happy to be able to ditch the vegan mayo and use real food 🙂
