Vegan French Dressing

by Jill Dalton

The next Plant Based Vegan Dressing in our Salad Dressing Series is French Dressing. Being one of the top 5 favorite dressings, we knew we had to create a healthy Plant Based version for you all. Typically French dressing is made with ketchup, oil, vinegar and sugar. We replaced those ingredients with health promoting whole food ingredients and the result is both delicious AND nutritious.

Thank you so much for your contributions to lives well lived. Just curious, why do you use hemp seeds vs say cashews for your dressings?

Hi Jill! Can I use hemp powder instead of hemp hearts?

Thank you for all the delicious recipes!!!

Is it 1 teaspoon of onion powder or half a teaspoon of onion powder. The video says one thing and your printed recipe says another.

Hi Tammy, It is one tsp. Sorry about the confusion.

Hi Jill, I just made this wonderful French Dressing recipe. I used sunflower seeds because I didn’t have hemp seeds available today. And I used soy sauce because I didn’t have any Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. The dressing turned out beautifully, so tasty and creamy. I absolutely love your channel and recipes. Thank you so much!!!

This is the first recipe on this site that was disappointing. It had almost no flavor. Maybe I forgot an ingredient or something….
