I know I can make them and I absolutely adore the recipes in Appetite for Reduction (mouth is watering just thinking about them) but for travel, cottage, and just general "I have too much to do, my kitchen and brain are a mess" times, are there any ranch or caesar dressings that are commercially available and taste good? Even if they taste okay, I am just looking for some creamy goodness when I want a change from vinaigrette.

This isn't remotely ranch, but goddess/tahini dressing aside, the only bottled creamy dressing I really like is Annie's Papaya Poppyseed. It's fresh tasting, creamy but not too thick, is not overly sweet, has a pleasant mustardy tang and goes with almost any salad (or wrap).

The follow your heart ranch and caesar are decent. Avoid the organicville at all costs.

ETA It's not ranch or caesar, but the Annie's goddess dressing is really good and very creamy. And pretty easy to find.

I tried organicville and didn't like it at all.

Agreed on the Annie's goddess dressing, also Kraft's lite Thousand Island is vegan. Not quite as good as the non-lite stuff, but miles better than the organicville version I tried. Their creamy italian is also vegan.

Lately for a creamy dressing I've been having Brianne's poppy seed.

None of these are ranch or Caesar though...

Follow Your Heart is the best commercially available. I'm bonkers for Annie's Woodstock. Tahini and sundried tomatoes, it's insane.

Oh, if you do go the FYH be sure to get the vegan ones. They have dairy options and if they don't have the full range displayed it can be confusing. I always thought they were a 100% vegan brand but they most certainly are not.
