Salad Dressing with no Vinegar

Hi James,
Its me again, Roberta , the one with the yeast allergies. I wonder if you could help me find a salad dressing that did not have vinegar in it. I cant find recipes anyplace and I cant find it in the grocery stores either. Everything has some vinegar in it. Hope you can help me with this.  Thanks a bunch.  Roberta

Hi Roberta,
Just about all commercial salad dressings have vinegar.   You can easily make your own though.
Lemon juice, lime juice and/or orange juice are excellent substitutes for vinegar in salad dressings.
You can substitute citrus juice for vinegar in any salad dressing recipe.
To come up with the best tasting result for you own taste, first experiment a little.  
Combine 1 tablespoon of oil with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice in a small container and shake it up well.  Dip a small lettuce leave in and taste it.

Then try it with lime juice, then with orange juice*.  Finally with a combination of orange juice and lime juice.   
See which one you like best, and then you can use whichever citrus juice you liked best above as a substitute for the vinegar in pretty much any salad dressing recipe.
*Also try using orange juice concentrate reconstituted using 2 cans of water instead of 3 for a more concentrated flavor. (Or reduce some fresh orange by about 25%).

Hey James!!
Thanks a bunch, I can always count on you.  Your handier than a pocket on a shirt.  Blessings to you and yours for all your help to everyone out there.
Your Friend, Roberta
