Something simple and versatile for you today. It’s my Low-FODMAP Homemade Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.
Prior to coming to A Gutsy Girl full-time, I did content creation in the natural foods industry for years. Most recently I was the Marketing Director at Delighted By Desserts. But I have also worked for companies like: Nutiva, Elmhurst 1925, Lotus Foods, Kaila Organics, and many other via misc. project-based work.
The largest portion of my work consisted of creating recipes using the brand’s product and then writing about plus photographing it. Gosh, I did really love it; just not enough to only devote a few hours a week to the Gutsy community. You are my first love!
The best part of it is that, because I always worked with the highest-quality brands, I now have a huge portfolio of work that is or could be relevant for you.
It’s about time I start sharing it all. And guess what? I’ve already sourced about 40-ish recipes that I’m going to share.
And it all starts today with this Low-FODMAP Homemade Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.
Why Make Your Own Salad Dressing?
Store-bought salad dressings are filled with unnecessary ingredients, and they can be costly. Learning to make your own at home will not only save you money, but it will also have you excited about making your own!
Don’t get me wrong, I do buy pre-made salad dressings now that my gut is healed. Rarely did I buy them when I was doing intense gut healing. But even when I buy them now, I’m careful and cautious because the ingredient panel of most salad dressings is far too long and complicated.
Also, if you’re trying to save money while gut healing, this is a great way to help.
Finally, when you make your own salad dressing like this basic version, it can be used for far more than just a salad. Here are some other ideas for this vinaigrette:
- stir frys and sautés
- rice bowls (or other grain/non-grain bowls)
- vegetable dip

This is a basic, 4-ingredient gluten and dairy-free Vinaigrette to use in sautés or salads.
It is so simple and basic that it can and will quickly become a staple dressing in your house.
All you have to do is make it once and you’ll see how delicious and easy it is!
For this basic Homemade Vinaigrette Salad Dressing, all I used were 4 ingredients that included Nutiva Organic Liquid Coconut Oil, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos, and fresh rosemary.
That’s right. All 4 of those ingredients are low-FODMAP.

Low-FODMAP Homemade Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Recipe
It’s a super simple recipe and process.
- ½ cup Nutiva Organic Liquid Coconut Oil
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 1 sprig rosemary
- Place all ingredients in a salad shaker, and shake vigorously.
- Drizzle over your favorite salad and/or sauté.
Here are the notes on the ingredients from a low-FODMAP standpoint.
- Coconut oil is always low-FODMAP.
- Apple cider vinegar is also always low-FODMAP. You should know, though, that some people don’t fully tolerate apple cider vinegar. However, there are so many apple cider vinegar benefits that you should not cut it unless absolutely necessary.
- Coconut aminos are also low-FODMAP. I love the Big Tree brand, but the Thrive Market one is the same and it’s cheaper.
- Fresh herbs. Fresh herbs are also always low-FODMAP.
In case you didn’t know, I have an e-book, Reasonable SIBO that has 310 graphics that show whether or not a food is low-FODMAP and how much you can eat before it turns high-FODMAP (if it does at all).
Questions? Let me know how you use this dressing. Is there another homemade dressing you are looking for? Let me know. I’d love to share it if I already have made one and/or create it for you.
And by the way, don’t need it to be low-FODMAP? Oh well, you’ll still enjoy it.
