Creamy salad dressings

bcrall | Jan 27, 2007 06:49 PM

So, I usually dress my salads with a simple balsamic vinaigrette: EVOO, balsamic, a touch of dijon mustard and salt & pepper. However, my soon-to-be-husband recently revealed that he prefers creamy salad dressings ("oh, but of course I love YOUR vinaigrette dear!" - eye roll).

Anyway, a couple of wrinkles in this: One, I've never ventured into making creamy dressings from scratch, and am not a huge fan of most commercial ones I've tried (Kraft ain't going to cut it, if I have to eat it on a regular basis).

And two: soon-to-be-husband has diabetes (Type I - not a reflection on his lifestyle) and high cholesterol (genetics, supplemented by hearty doses of bacon). So I need some relatively healthy stuff and *definitely* no egg yolks.

What's a girl to do? If anyone's got a recipe for semi-healthy creamy salad dressings, or know of a semi-palatable commercial one, I would love to hear about it.
