Sunflower Seed Salad Dressing is super creamy and delicious. It’s easily made in your blender and keeps well in your fridge for many days. You will love this dairy-free salad dressing recipe!



  • 1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon miso (use gluten-free soy sauce instead, if needed)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Optional: a pinch of cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Place all the sunflower seed dressing ingredients into your high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth.
  2. Store for up to a week in a jar in your fridge.


If you don’t have a high-powered blender, use sunflower seed butter instead of whole seeds.
