This Vegan Thousand Island Dressing recipe is so easy to make, tangy, sweet, and full of flavor like the original classic. One bowl and 5 minutes are all you need to make this healthy vegan dressing. Oil-free, gluten-free, and nut-free!


Units Scale
  • 12-ounce box firm silken tofu (I like Mori-Nu)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt or to taste
  • 3 Tbsp sweet pickle relish or diced dill pickles
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill


  1. Combine tofu, ketchup, mustard, maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a small mixing bowl, add the relish and dill, and whisk until well combined.



I love using it as a dipping sauce for my Oil-Free Oven Roasted Potatoes, a sandwich spread on my Potato Chip Tomato Sandwich, or just a simple salad dressing on this Apple Walnut Salad. The possibilities are endless.

You can store this Vegan Thousand Island Dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days. Honestly, it probably won’t last that long – it disappears extremely fast in our house.

It may thicken up as it sits so just add a little water, stir, and you’re ready to go!
