I adore Newman's Own® Southwest salad dressing from McDonald's®. Sadly it's not available at any stores (that I can find). Play around to make it taste as you remember it. Enjoy!

Fabulous recipe! In place of the vegan mayo I added a pureed avocado and a large spoonful of plain greek yogurt and extra water to thin. It was fabulous low cal for a dressing and super healthy. Thanks! Read More

Was sooo excited to find a recipe for this!! I tweaked the recipe for what I had at home. 1/2 mayo and 1/2 plain greek yogurt instead of vegan yogurt, honey instead of agave nectar, regular white vinegar, lemon juice (though I'm sure lime would be a little better), and I know it's weird, but I used the vinegar water from banana peppers instead of water to thin. I also added about a teaspoon and a half or so of sriracha! It tastes great and I'm sure after sitting over night it will taste even better tomorrow :) Thanks for sharing. Read More

My family loved this! We are not vegan so we used regular mayo and put it on a chicken salad. We liked it so well that we did another salad with steak. A yummy dressing for any summer salad. Read More

Amazing. My boyfriend is in LOVE with it and can't stop raving. Made me look like a champ. I served it with organic brown rice and a southwest salad... We are vegan and it is a new staple! The sauce really makes it! Read More

YUM! I made this with vegan low fat mayo and it was amazing! Put it on a salad of romain corn (fresh or even frozen) black beans (canned) and top with a few tortilla chips. Amazing and guilt free! Thank you for the great recipe! Read More

I really like this. I pretty much double the spices then adjust the mayo and water to taste. I substitute sour cream for part of the mayo again to taste. I use sugar instead of agave nectar as I always have it on hand. I tried it with a tablespoon of sugar but will cut that in half next time. Although I made changes to suit my taste this recipe provided the basics of what is now a favorite. Read More

Very Good - I mixed this dressing into a Southwest type salad adding crushed tortilla chips just before serving. I topped salad with grilled Fajita Chicken. It was delicious! Read More
