Several people from the Facebook page mentioned that they could use some different ideas for salad dressings to help them on the yeast free Candida Diet so I wanted to post a couple of my favorites.

One of the tricks I enjoy is using guacamole on my salad to change things up – pair this with a black bean salsa for a delicious southwestern salad.  You can also use guacamole in place of mayo for sandwiches or as a dip for your favorite veggies.


– 1 avocado, mashed with a fork or hand mixer
– 1 tomato, chopped
– 1 green onion, chopped
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/8 tsp onion powder
– 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Combine avocado with tomato, green onion, salt, onion powder and garlic powder. Use as a dip, dressing or garnish.


Note: Guacamole is best served immediately as avocado will start to brown once cut.

Another favorite yeast free salad dressing is the classic Italian below:

Italian Salad Dressing

– 1/2 c light olive oil
– 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
– 2 tsp fresh basil, finely chopped
– 2 tsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
– 2 green onions, finely chopped
– 1/4 tsp salt

In a sealable container, mix the olive oil, parsley, basil, oregano, green onions and salt. Marinate in fridge and serve over veggies or your salad of choice. Keep refrigerated.
