In recent years, quite a few dairy-free ranch dressings have hit the market from Daiya, Follow Your Heart, Litehouse, Tessamae’s, and others. But Organicville Non-Dairy Ranch was the first. It landed in stores nearly fifteen years ago, long before most brands were even thinking about vegan options. Their dairy-free ranch is still around, but now they have a whole line of Organicville Salad Dressings, including some very flavoful vinaigrettes.
The original line of Organicville Salad Dressings was shelf-stable and completely dairy-free. Those are still available, but they’ve also added refrigerated dressings to their portfolio. The refrigerated Organicville salad dressings come in many of the same flavors (with the same ingredients), but they did add a few more cool flavors. Unfortunately, one of them (Greek) contains dairy. As always, use caution when purchasing and read the labels!
Organicville Salad Dressings Put to the Taste Test
I’ve never been a big vinaigrette fan – often finding them too oily, too watery, too sweet, too sharp or too flat. But Organicville Vinaigrettes may have won me over with a few of their delicious varieties. Unlike so many chemical-laden brands, Organicville Salad Dressings are made with real spices and without funny ingredients. So they have wonderful depth in flavor that doesn’t taste the least bit artificial. And they are well balanced without tasting overly sweet, too sharp, or greasy.
I’ve listed the ingredients, nutrition facts, and our tasting notes for all of the shelf-stable Organicville Salad Dressings that we’ve tried. If you try any of these, or any of the dairy-free refrigerated flavors, you can leave your own unbiased rating and review below!
The color of Organicville’s ranch dressing is more natural, rather than artificially white, and it has a clean flavor to match. The consistency is creamy, a bit like a lighter ranch, and it’s seasoned with the right blend of herbs. I shared this dressing with several people, and one of them called it “gardeny.” Everyone liked it but found it just a little too tangy. It was a bit more like a ranch vinaigrette than a classic ranch dressing. Nonetheless it added zest over salads and was great as a dip for heartier foods, like chicken strips or roasted cauliflower. It was just a bit too strong for dipping fresh or steamed vegetables.

This was an absolute love, and perhaps our favorite. It has deep yet subtle flavors that are lightly rich and complimentary. Tony typically detests ginger, yet he went out of his way to say how good the green salads were with this dressing. Seriously.

Packed with so many herbs they literally tickled my taste buds. This is a fantastic all-purpose option that wouldn’t let me down on greens, pasta, sandwiches, vegetables or entrees. In fact, we made some tasty “sneaky” mashed potatoes with it (2 servings): 1/2 lb boiled red potatoes, 1 cup steamed cauliflower florets, 1/4 to 1/3 cup Organicville Herbs De Provence, 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt (to taste), and a few twists of the pepper grinder all mashed together.

At last taste (it’s been a while since I’ve had this one), it was a much gentler flavor than the norm, relying more on herbs and quality olive oil than the sharp tang of balsamic. It was also the runniest of the bunch, nearly sliding right off my plate!
Ingredients: water, organic high oleic sunflower oil, organic balsamic vinegar, organic red wine vinegar, salt, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic apple fiber, organic minced garlic, organic spices, xanthan gum, organic rosemary extract.

Like the other Organicville Vinaigrettes, this variety was not shy on taste. However it had a warm Mediterranean vibe. It melded beautifully with my Italian inspired green salad of spinach, romaine, chopped olives, roasted red peppers and chickpeas and was the perfect match to pasta salad. The sharp tang of vinegar made this one a standout, yet the overall flavor was well-tempered by the tomato.

What Others Are Saying ...
These are obsessively natural in ingredients and taste. I thought the vinaigrettes were perfectly balanced for rich flavor that isn’t overly sharp or oily. I couldn’t get enough of the Miso Ginger and Dijon. I did like the Ranch, but it wouldn’t be my go to – especially since the other vinaigrettes have so much interesting flavor.
