    Can you make the salad then take out a portion for him (use a small bowl in case others would like no dressing too) and then dress the rest of the salad for the rest of the guests? (That's what I would do).

    when you say no vingar do you mean no vinegerette or literally no vinegar?

    as PP mentioned you could make a vinegerette without vinegar, just used lemon juice.

    if you want something creamy as a subsitute to mayo - you can use natural yohgurt? depending on what it is you could also mix parmasen cheese (say for a potato salad/caesor salad etc).

    a runny egg makes a great salad dressing too.

    or you could do a roast vegetable salad and just using the cooking oil for a dressing (add a squeeze of lemon juice to balance flavours but you don't have to).

    what else are you serving for lunch? what sort of salad did u want to serve?

    Honey mustard! I just use Dijon mustard, honey and oil. It all depends on your taste. Start with 1 tbsp mustard, 1/2 tbsp honey and enough oil to make the right consistency. Then taste it and adjust. I've also used grainy mustard, hot English mustard or American mustard. They all taste good, but Dijon is my favorite, it also tastes good with a squirt of lemon juice.
    It sounds a bit odd for salad but it's so yummy.

    I'm maybe a little worn out by a fussy toddler AND a fussy partner. My attitude towards my DF & fussiness is if you want something different make it yourself

    But otherwise, lemon juice, olive oil & crushed garlic is good.

    Mustard based dressing.

    Ranch dressing. I'm mildly addicted to just the woolies select ranch dressing.

    I know it's vinegar but how's he feel about balsamic vinegar & olive oil?

    I'm mad on ranch ever since an American friend put me on to it. I like the Paul Newman's, but it's so hard to get out the bottle. Either nothing comes out, or it all comes out at once!

    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?
    Sounds delish, Yepo i'd love it please

    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...

    What about an Orange and Fennel salad with olive oil, no vinegar?

    - Orange (cut in bite size pieces)
    - Fennel
    - Spring onion
    - Salt and olive oil to taste.
    YUM!
