Creamy Vegan Salad Dressings to Take Your Next Lunch Up a Notch

Looking for vegan creamy salad dressing? Whether it’s cruelty-free ranch, Caesar, or Thousand Island—or another dairy-free option—we’ve got your salad covered.

Dairy production is both cruel and sexist. (Yeah, we said it.) That’s why more and more people are demanding that brands offer vegan products. And guess what? Dairy-free and meat-free items are practically flooding store shelves at the moment. It’s encouraging to see these changes, so let’s keep up the good work. We look forward to a future in which everyone knows that going vegan benefits animals, the environment, and their own health.

Enjoy these creamy vegan salad dressings, which are available at a grocery store near you:

Simply Free

These creamy and healthy dressings come in four delicious flavors: Greek Feta Dill, Spicy Harissa, Zesty Garlic & Lime, and Moroccan Spiced Lemon.


That’s right—even Kraft has “accidentally vegan” creamy salad dressings, including Classic or Zesty Catalina and Fat Free Creamy French. The Creamy Italian is also milk- and egg-free, but the variety made with olive oil isn’t, so be sure to check the ingredients.

Trader Joe’s

Thank goddess for Trader Joe’s Goddess Dressing. We swear this store has so many vegan goodies that it’s hard to keep track of them all.

Follow Your Heart

We’ve been in love with Follow Your Heart products for a while. We’re obsessed with the anchovy-free Organic Vegan Caesar and think it’s awesome that some of the dressings are fortified with omega-3s. (Check out these great ways to get omega-3 fatty acids from plants.) Choose from High Omega Vegan Ranch, High Omega Vegan Bleu Cheese, Organic Vegan Caesar, Reduced Fat Vegan Ranch, Reduced Fat Vegan Southwestern Ranch, Vegan Creamy Garlic, and Vegan Thousand Island.

Newman’s Own

The “accidentally vegan” Creamy Balsamic and Poppy Seed dressings are available at your local grocery store.


 This delicious salad dressing line is available at Target and other big-box stores. Flavors include French, Greek. Miso Ginger Vinaigrette, Non-Dairy Ranch, Non-Dairy Thousand Island, and White Balsamic Vinaigrette.


One might call this the original Goddess dressing. It’s delicious, and doesn’t need dairy to achieve the perfect creamy texture.


Daiya is another of our favorite brands that makes delicious vegan products free from animal suffering. Blue Cheeze, Creamy Caesar, and Homestyle Ranch are all equally yummy.


Coconut milk is the secret creamy ingredient in Hilary’s Ranch Chia and Spicy Island. What can’t coconut milk do?

Field Roast Chao Vegan Creamery

Field Roast is one of our favorite brands for vegan meats, and its dressings are scrumptious, too. Choose from Bold & Tangy Thousand Island, Classic Caesar, and Cracked Peppercorn Ranch.


This brand can be found at Vons, Ralphs, Gelson’s Markets, Target, Whole Foods Market, and elsewhere. Flavors include Blush Wine Vinaigrette, Real French Vinaigrette, Rich Poppy Seed, Special Request Rich Santa Fe Blend, and Zesty French.

Walden Farms

Talk about “accidentally vegan”: Even the bacon flavors are made with soy “bacon” bits. We love it. Choose from these calorie-free creamy dressing flavors: Bacon Ranch, Ranch, Chipotle Ranch, Creamy Bacon, Creamy Italian, French, Russian, and Thousand Island.


Now that you’ve got the 411 on vegan creamy salad dressings, there are no more excuses—it’s time to go vegan!
