Healthy Whole Foods Low Fodmap Salad Dressing – No Oil
Homemade Low FODMAP Salad Dressing, with seeds, oranges, white wine vinegar
It is easy to make your own healthy and tasty whole foods low fodmap salad dressings if you have a blender.
I used this dressing for weeks and weeks before working on other low fodmap dressing variations. I found it so tasty and satisfying!
It’s sweet and spicy, and with a nice white wine vinegar and pumpkin seeds instead of oil, is creamy and kind of fancy. Other vinegars would likely work also, as long as they are light, delightful ones.
Being onion-free and garlic-free, it won’t upset sensitive IBS tummies, and using seeds or nuts instead of oil, means it barely separates, and is whole foods plant based.

Orange Spicy Low FODMAP Salad Dressing – Vegan, Oil-Free
Blend fresh sweet orange or clementine segments, with a hint of ginger, pumpkin seeds, spicy crushed red pepper flakes, and white wine vinegar to create a slightly spicy and delicious low fodmap salad dressing.
The pumpkin seeds act as a thickener, and substitute for oil. Very rich and satisfying. See here if you are wondering, why no oil on a whole foods plant based diet?
Pumpkin seeds (reading the bag here) have 30g of protein per 100g, – 30% protein!
Plus pumpkin seeds are a good source of other really important nutrients: Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Potassium, and fibre, and they are low fodmap, as well as nut-free.
Low FODMAP Salad Idea – With This Low Fodmap Dressing
For lunch, I’ll throw a couple big handfuls of spring greens, or chopped romaine lettuce in a large bowl.
Then I add diced green onions, crunchy fresh radishes, sliced yellow pepper, diced cucumber, and some halved cherry tomatoes.
The coolness of some of those vegetables, tames the spice of the dressing, and to me the green onions make it extra delicious!
To round out the meal, I’ll add carbs like: leftover chopped potato, wild rice, quinoa, wheat free pasta, or a slice of gluten free toast. Also I’ll add some more protein: edamame.
Spoon the dressing generously over the top, it’s good for you after all.
Enjoy making your own quick and easy low fodmap salad dressing in 5-10 minutes!
