In your salad dressings that call for milk, can you substitute soy milk?
Absolutely. Soy milk is a great choice for salad dressings. Be careful when you pick up a carton as many are sweetened or flavored. The added sugar or vanilla flavor could have an effect on the taste of your recipe.
Here are some salad dressings to try:
Ginger Garlic Salad Dressing
Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing
Honey Mustard Dressing
Dried Cherry Vinaigrette
Peruvian Green Sauce
