Learn to Cook: Healthy Salad Dressing

By Whole Foods Market

Nuts and fruit can make for creamy, juicy and flavorful salad dressings without adding any extracted oils. Plus you get the health benefits of those nutrient-dense nuts and fruits. Save money by using your imagination and what's in your pantry to come up with new flavor combinations.

Serves 8



  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts, such as walnuts, cashews, almonds or pecans
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh fruit, such as plums, peaches, blueberries or strawberries
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk (or fruit juice, such as pomegranate or orange)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (or vinegar)


Purée all ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth. For thinner dressings, add a little more soy milk or fruit juice.
