Dips, Dressings, and Salads We’re Loving Right Now

The new vegan Caesar dressing recipe in GP’s lunch rotation and our all-time favorite recipes for late spring and summer produce.



  • Vegan Caesar Dressing

    Egg yolk, Parmesan, and anchovies give a traditional Caesar dressing its signature creaminess, saltiness, and umami flavor. You can still achieve that with some of our favorite vegan pantry essentials: miso, vegenaise, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and nutritional yeast.


  • Vegan Chipotle Dressing

    We are obsessed with the vegan chipotle dressing at the Erewhon salad bar here in LA, so we made an easy cheat. It’s creamy enough to replace either cheese or sour cream, and the smoky chipotle adds depth.


  • Creamy Cilantro Avocado Dressing
  • Carrot and Ginger Dressing


  • Fresh Leafy Kimchi Salad

    Fresh Leafy Kimchi Salad

    The powerful flavors of kimchi are delightfully reimagined in this bright, fresh salad. Tender greens, rich avocado, and crisp sunflower seeds round everything out and make for a super savory salad that feels both light and satisfying.


  • Couscous and Clover

    Couscous and Clover

    A new take on familiar pasta salads. The pepita-and-pea-tendril sauce is similar to pesto, but seasoning it with earthy cumin and onion powder gives it a uniquely savory flavor. Prep in advance and keep in your fridge for a quick and simple lunch.


  • Vegan Chopped Salad
  • Tropical Chop with Macadamia Lime Dressing

    Tropical Chop with Macadamia Lime Dressing

    There is so much going on here in the texture department: juicy pineapple, crunchy carrots, and crisp jicama, tossed together in a creamy, tangy macadamia nut dressing—topped off with toasted coconut and a mess of fresh herbs.


  • Kale Cabbage Slaw with Almonds and Dill

    Kale Cabbage Slaw with Almonds and Dill

    It doesn’t get easier than this. The dressing is incredibly forgiving (the creamy Dijon mustard makes emulsifying foolproof), and from there, all you have to do is chop and toss everything together.


  • Grilled Corn Salad

    The perfect way to take advantage of summer corn, this recipe balances its sweetness with smoky poblano and spicy jalapeño peppers, plus tangy lime juice.


  • Chickpea Salad with Roasted Red Peppers
  • Kale and Avocado Salad with Roasted Carrots

    Kale and Avocado Salad with Roasted Carrots

    Hit the hot veggies with sherry vinegar right when they come out of the oven, so they really absorb the deep, sweet, and tangy flavor. And make this salad ahead of time for potlucks and packed lunches—the roasted veggies and sturdy kale keep well.
