Are oil-free vegan salad dressings possible? Can they taste great? Yes!
Finally, my oil-free salad dressings ebook is here! I’ve talked about this ebook in past posts. After creating quite a number of delicious dressings and sauces for my books and blog, I wanted to devote time to an entire collection of unique oil-free salad dressings recipes.
This ebook contains 10 new recipes along with 1 bonus blog recipe, for a total of 11 vegan, oil-free, and mostly nut-free dressings.
