Finding Whole30 Approved salad dressing at the store can be just a little tricky. What oils are compliant? Is that extract okay? Well, my goal is to help save you from scouring your local grocery stores aisles, and googling a million ingredients. I want to make it easy for you!
So I compiled a list of every single Paleo and Whole30 salad dressing I could find! You’ll still need to double check your ingredients labels because companies can make changes, but I hope this makes your life and your Whole30 meal planning just a little simpler.
When you check your salad dressing labels, be sure to check for sneaky non-compatible ingredients like soybean oil, maltodextrin, stevia, monk fruit, and honey.
Best Whole30 Salad Dressings
- Ranch: Tessemae’s Habanero Ranch
- Caesar: Primal Kitchen Caesar
- Vinaigrette: Sir Kensington’s Dijon Balsamic
No official award has been given to the above salad dressings, although that would be a fabulous idea! They’re just my personal favorites. Okay, now on to the full list of Paleo and Whole30 Approved and compliant salad dressings!
Whole30 Approved Salad Dressing
These dressings have the official Whole30 Approved stamp from HQ, which means the products meet the requirements of the Whole30 program, and the company has met the standards of the Whole30 team.
Primal Kitchen Foods
Primal Kitchen Foods is another brand sharing a huge variety of Whole30 Approved salad dressings. They’ve got something for everyone! Not all of their dressings are compatible, so just be sure to check your ingredients label.
- Vegan Ranch: If you’re looking for a Whole30 ranch dressing made without eggs, Primal Kitchen’s Vegan Ranch is it!
- Caesar. I have a homemade Whole30 Caesar Dressing if you’d rather make it yourself!
- Green Goddess
- Balsamic Vinaigrette
- Greek Vinaigrette
- Italian Vinaigrette. This fabulous on my Grilled Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Salad!
- Dreamy Italian Vinaigrette
- Thousand Island
- Lemon Turmeric
- Oil & Vinegar: This is a super classic, versatile dressing that you can use on almost anything!
*Note: Sesame Ginger and Honey Mustard (pictured) are not Whole30 compatible as they contain honey.
Tessemae’s is the OG of Whole30 Approved salad dressings. To the best of my recollection, they were doing this way before anyone else was, and definitely before it was cool.
They’re most famous for their creamy ranch, but they offer a huge variety of compatible dressings to choose from. Just be sure to always check the labels because they have a few options that aren’t compatible.
- Creamy Ranch: I use this in my BBQ Chicken & Ranch Sliders.
- Habanero Ranch
- Avocado Ranch
- Everything Bagel Ranch
- Cilantro Lime Ranch: Great on my Chicken Fajita Salad!
- Lemon Garlic: This doubles as a marinade. I personally love it on chicken!
- Balsamic Vinaigrette: This is also a great marinade.
- Creamy Caesar
- Classic Italian
These salad dressings are the brand new offerings created by Whole30.
- House Ranch
- Creamy Balsamic Dressing
- Buffalo Vinaigrette
- Elderberry Vinaigrette
- Secret Sauce: This would be fantastic on my Big Mac Potato Skins!
These dressings are comin’ in hot with a really nice change of pace to the regular lineup. They have a few varieties that the other brands don’t offer, and I’m excited to try them sometime!
- Olive Oil & Balsamic
- Herbs de Provence
- Non Dairy Ranch
- White Balsamic
- Sundried Tomato & Garlic. I think this would go beautifully on my Tomato-basil Grilled Turkey Salad!
Whole30 Compatible Salad Dressings
This list of dressings fully meets the bill when it comes to Whole30 , but they don’t have the official approval from Whole30 HQ. Now that doesn’t doesn’t mean they aren’t perfectly good choices, you just have to make sure to closely check your ingredients label!
Chosen Foods is a great brand (and I adore their Whole30 Mayo!) offering quite a few Paleo and Whole30 compatible salad dressings. Be sure to check the ingredients labels, because not all are Whole30 compatible, and read the product descriptions and ingredients because the names aren’t overtly descriptive of the flavors.
- Baja Goddess
- Golden Goddess
- Garden Goddess
- Greek Goddess Dressing
- Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing
- Lemon Garlic
Sir Kensington’s has a bunch of delicious, better-for-you condiments, but only some are Whole30 compatible. These are their two salad dressings that work perfectly with the Whole30 and Paleo way of eating!
These plant based and egg free salad dressings are all made with tea, which I imagine gives them an herbal, floral, and deep flavor. I’d serve these with salads or as dipping sauces because they sound fabulous! And can we just quickly touch on these names? Too cute!
- The Beet Goes On
- No Cows on this Ranch
- Apple Spice Vinaigrette
If you love citrus, this salad dressing is for you! I love that it’s versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes as a marinade, dressing, dipping sauce, and more.
- Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette
Whole30 Compliant / Compatible (but with Canola Oil)
While completing a Whole30, canola oil isn’t strictly prohibited, but it’s recommended to limit the amount of canola oil you consume to get the most out of your Whole30.
The next batch of dressings are made with canola oil, so they’re certainly compatible for your Whole30. They would be an appropriate choice in certain situations, like if you’re at a friend’s house, using it only occasionally, or if they’re what’s available to you, so I think it’s important to know about them!
Yo Mama’s Foods
You guys know I’m a sucker for good branding. All I did was read the company name and the name of the product and I’m in, 100%. I haven’t tried this ranch dressing before, but it sounds delightful and it has rave reviews on Amazon! I’d love to use it in my Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Spaghetti Squash.
- American Ranch
I love Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, so it makes sense that this vinaigrette is wonderful, too. I used to buy it at my local Kroger but haven’t seen it in a while. Just be careful when purchasing, because they have another vinaigrette that contains honey, and the packaging is similar.
- Organic Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Where to buy: Amazon, or check their store locator.
Canola oil is Whole30 compliant, however it’s recommended to limit your consumption at home. If you’re eating out or other circumstances make it so that other options aren’t available to you, salad dressings made with canola oil are perfectly acceptable.
That’s easy! Try dump ranch and your life will be forever changed.
No, Skinnygirl salad dressings are not Whole30 compatible because they all contain maltodextrin or other non-compatible ingredients like monkfruit sweetener.
