Candy's Kitchen Barcelona Vinaigrette


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has already been asked but I couldn't find the question anywhere in the Forum already.  I've finally got my husband to eat salads and he really likes this salad dressing. I know sunflower oil isn't encouraged but everything else in the ingredient list on the bottle seems okay - is it?  I'd like to keep using this dressing as I fear my husband won't be so keen on his salads without it.

It's not that it's 'not encouraged' - it's actually not allowed for anything other than eating out when there are no other options available.  My guess is he likes this because it's a bit lighter tasting than just evoo but it looks like it would be easy enough to recreate using a mixture of avocado oil or light tasting olive oil instead of the sunflower.

Not allowed? I'm confused. Tessamae's dressings contain sunflower oil and the ones I just bought have Whole30 Approved labels on them.  They even say that Melissa approves the dressings on their FAQ page https://www.tessemaes.com/pages/faqs  Has this changed?

The oil in the Tessemae's dressings is high oleic sunflower oil which has a similar fat profile to olive oil.  Regular sunflower oil (when it is not specified as high oleic) is not permitted for in home use on the program and only in dining out situations where there are no other options.

I've clearly misunderstood this then.  The reason I thought that sunflower oil was acceptable for limited use (but not for cooking), is because the book says,  "So, we ban the seed oils specifically off-limits according to the Whole30 “no grains, no legumes” rules (corn oil, rice bran oil, soybean oil, and peanut oil), and encourage you to limit your use of the others (like safflower, sunflower, canola, grapeseed, or sesame) at home, while not specifically excluding them on the program."
