Follow Your Heart Vegan Salad Dressings include Bleu Cheese, Ranch & Caesar

9

Back before “vegan” was the new “vegetarian” there was Follow Your Heart. Four friends opened up shop in 1970, serving popular cafe food in their all-vegetarian restaurant and market. Fast forward 50 years, and Follow Your Heart is a leading vegan brand that push the limits of dairy substitutes. In fact, they actually made my husband say, “wow, that really tastes like blue cheese!” when we taste-tested the creamy line of Follow Your Heart Vegan Salad Dressings.

Follow Your Heart Vegan Salad Dressings include Dairy-Free Bleu Cheese, Ranch & More

Over the past decade, Follow Your Heart has amassed a collection of fifteen vegan salad dressings. They cover every dairy-free, egg-free, and gluten-free need. But of course, we were eyeing the creamy varieties first.

We haven’t tried every variety – not even close. But I’ve included our tasting notes below for the ones we have sampled. Please leave your own unbiased rating and review below if you buy and try any Follow Your Heart Vegan Salad Dressings.

High Omega Bleu Cheese

I really enjoyed this incredibly thick and creamy condiment! It has a pleasantly pungent flavor that complimented and elevated almost every dish we paired it with – even beyond salads. My palate isn’t very familiar with traditional blue cheese, but Tony really was stunned by the authentic flavor.

High Omega Ranch

I never thought my only complaint would be that it’s too thick, but this ranch was so dense and creamy that it wouldn’t pour from the bottle! Once we got things moving and thinned it out a bit, we enjoyed this dressing immensely. Overall, it really does have traditional ranch dressing flare.

We tried the Bleu Cheese and Ranch and were impressed by the flavor of both. My husband was a blue cheese fan, and he said the bleu cheese dressing was remarkably spot on. Both were a bit thicker than expected, but they were easy enough to thin out, and that just made each bottle go further!

  4. I was so happy to discover these salad dressings a couple of years ago! I am not a blue cheese fan, but based on how delicious the Ranch and Thousand Island are (my favorites), I have no dout it’s top notch. I agree that these dressings are thick, but I prefer that to one that starts out too thin. Both also make excellent dipping sauces for homemade french fries!

    • I’ve honestly never been into cheese at all, but the blue cheese dressing is pretty darn good! Thanks for sharing your thoughts – I haven’t tried the Thousand Island yet!

  5. I love the the Ranch and Blue Cheese dressings. Rich and creamy but dairy-free. Can’t ask for more than that.
