Elimination Diet Salad Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Houmous Monster

I hate eating plain salads. Even oil dressings I'm not keen on. When you can't eat anything else this might help. It's specifically for a local hospital's Elimination Diet (UK). It goes well on salad topped with raisins. I'm not going to kid you that this tastes fantastic, on a restricted diet nothing's going to, but my boyfriend who refuses to eat any of my food admits it's not bad. UPDATED: I found it hard to use up the left over tofu before it went off, so I now make it to be OAMC. I've found it freezes quite well. Details at the bottom of directions

I love creamy salad dressings, but can't always use them in a meal, since I don't mix meat with milk. This is a wonderful solution! I assumed that the tiny measures meant dried herbs, so I just tripled the amounts and used fresh. Good call. Very green and very yummy. Next time I'll add more garlic, and perhaps some hot pepper. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Throw all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Mix until smooth.
  2. It helps to leave it a short while after mixing to let the ingredients drip to the bottom and then mix again.
  3. OMAC: I triple the recipe to use a whole 12 oz box of tofu. I then split the batch into cup portions (about) and freeze. I find each portion does two salads. I let it thaw in the fridge a couple of days before use, but based on other experience I expect it would defrost in the microwave fine.
