Low FODMAP Salad Dressing

Having trouble finding a low FODMAP salad dressing? Between lactose, wheat, onion and garlic, and sweeteners like honey, finding a FODMAP friendly dressing can feel impossible. It’s true, most salad dressings aren’t made with FODMAPers in mind. But, that doesn’t mean you need to be a salad nudist. Here are three of my favourite low FODMAP ways to dress a salad.

Low FODMAP Balsamic Vinaigrette

If you’re looking for the little black dress of salad dressings, try this low FODMAP balsamic vinaigrette. From light summer salads to dark winter greens, this low FODMAP dressing makes a bold statement.

According to Monash University, balsamic vinegar is safe in servings of 1 tbsp. This recipe uses 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, which works out to 0.7 tbsp of vinegar per serving. This is within the recommended range.

The Monash app says Dijon mustard is safe in servings of 1 tbsp. We use 2 tsp in this recipe, which is within the recommended serving size.

Low FODMAP Greek Dressing

Want something classic? Try this low FODMAP Greek dressing. The tang of the lemon will put a little pep in your step while the garlic infused oil gives it depth. Use it on a low FODMAP Greek salad, or for marinating meats.

To recreate the classic taste of Greek dressing, we’re swapping out the olive oil and fresh garlic for garlic infused oil. We’re also swapping out the traditional red wine vinegar for apple cider vinegar, as red wine vinegar hasn’t been tested by Monash University.

To keep this recipe FODMAP friendly, make sure you use a ketchup without garlic, onions, or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). If you can’t find a low FODMAP brand at your local store, you can order a FODMAP-frendly ketchup from Fody Foods Co.

What You Need
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup oil (lightly flavoured)
What You Do
  1. Place all ingredients in an airtight container and shake until mixed through. Serve immediately. 

Notes

Make sure you use a light flavoured oil for this recipe. The flavour of a standard olive oil will overpower the acidity of the ketchup and apple cider vinegar and will not be pleasant. I took one for the team on this one, so take my word for it!
