    We do a salad with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, spring onion, kidney beans, celery, cheese, crushed original doritos with a dressing of sour cream. It is so, so, so yummy!

    You could just do olive oil, lemon juice and Dijon mustard dressing over any type of salad?

    What about Asian style salads with sesame oil, lime juice, soy, etc
    Or balsamic and olive oil with a touch of dijon?

    What about pesto? I often use pesto as a salad dressing/base - you could do a pasta salad, a noodle salad, a potato salad - and add a jar (or homemade if you have time) of pesto.

    Any acidic base can replace vinegar- orange, lemon, lime juice

    Not sure what you could use to replace mayo though..

    I have a nice Thai beef recipe that has an awesome dressing if you want?

    If you're doing a potato salad/pasta salad/etc I'd just use a pesto rather than the white sauces they usually use (sour cream, mayo, etc). They go nicely in these dishes. Can make your own, or purchase...

    For a leaf-based salad, you just need to use some sort acid to get it working - instead of vinegar, some sort of citrus would be good. I prefer lime.

    Just had a quick look on Taste to find some dressings that might suit...
