Our Cajun Salad Dressing is cool and creamy with a spicy Cajun heat and is just brimming with tangy flavour. Perfect for salads, as a sauce for grilled meats or a dip for your crudités!
The star in this delectable dressing is the Cajun spice mix typified by its peppery spiciness, and agreeable oregano, thyme notes combined with paprika, onion flakes, garlic powder and cayenne pepper for some extra heat. It really makes a huge difference if you take the time to make your own as most store-bought varieties have added salt.
What Can I Use It On?
- Use it as you would any ranch dressing especially great with mixed salads, chopped salads and kale salads.
- A fantastic alternative to mayonnaise in your pasta salads and coleslaws
- Fabulous on bean salads.
- Makes an excellent dip for crudités and pita chips.
- Great topping for your roast vegetables try it on potatoes, carrots, beets and pumpkin.
- Try it on grilled corn with some crispy bacon.
- Use it as a sauce on simple grilled meats and spicy chicken wings.

Made a green salad and used this dressing and also put a spoonful on salmon patties that we made, it was delicious on both. We always make our own salad dressing, and this one is top notch. Thanks for sharing.
I couldn't agree with you more on homemade salad dressings; they taste a million times better than anything store-bought.
I am really glad you enjoyed it.
This was so delicious!!! It was great on my salad and I ended up dipping my shrimp in it too. My 9 year old tried it, said it was so-so, but when I turned around she was licking the spoon!
So glad you enjoyed it, it would be great for shrimp!
