    I've been using olive oil, a crushed hard boiled egg and sprinkles of parmesan cheese.

    I can't find the lite version around here anymore either. I'm in Michigan. I do buy just the regular Marie's Cream Ranch though, and I'm fine with it (in small amounts).

    salad dressing

    In the stores around my area,(northern va.), the Marie's lite is where the lettuce is.

    I buy it at Safeway I've also seen it at Albertsons. Those are both West Coast stores. I couldn't find the lite one in Tennessee, but I diluted it with nonfat milk & figured that was the best I could do. (I've gained so much weight since IC!)

    You could try it. I don't think it tastes "that" much like soy sauce, but you could tinker around with it. You may find that it's an acceptable substitute.

    PS If you can't find an IC friendly (without acid) pear juice, sometimes you can buy pears canned in their own juice & use that for the dressing!

    For salad dressing, I mix pear juice with canola oil & a little basil. This is good on baby romaine or spinach with a little feta cheese and some almonds, dates or pears.

    I'm also ok with a small amount of Marie's lite creamy ranch dressing. It's available in the refrigerated shelves in the produce section at the grocery store. I put it on the side of the plate & just dip my fork in it for a little bit of flavor, but not a lot of the dressing before each bite of salad. If you're still worried about it, you could take Prelief (antacid) with it.

    He makes something he calls a soy sauce substitute out of water, dark molasses, sesame oil, and salt. I use it in salad dressings and to put in stir frys, etc. It gives you the color, saltiness, and a little bit of the smokiness of soy sauce. I wouldn't use it alone, but in other things it's not a bad substitute.

    A chef named Daniel Norten has a site that is designed for us IC patients. Unfortunetely it costs about $5 a month, but I believe he does have some free salad dressing recipes on his site. They've all been pretty decent in my opinion. It's interstitialcystitis.me

    I made the Asian dressing with his soy sauce substitute - I added a little fresh ginger. It was really good!

    I have the subscription. My only complaint is that the recipes are not well written. He frequently gives you an ingredient and then does not explain where in the directions to use them, or the directions will mention an ingredient that was not in the list. However, if you know how to cook, it's not much of an issue. He has some creative stuff on there - like chicken lettuce wraps - that I have really enjoyed.

    But I also make good use of the recipes on this site - we have some good cooks here, too!

    If you can tolerate cottage cheese, you could try putting some in the blender with your favorite herbs --- it makes a nice dressing.
