I have not come across anything that I actually like yet until now. I found this at superstore, near the salad dressings.

http://www.uncledans.com/products.html#Classic%20Ranch

This classic ranch dip is soooo good. I mixed 1 -1.5 tsp dip mix to 1 container of tofutti sour supreme. It was good with ripple chips or veggies. I e-mailed them about whether they consider it safe for milk-allergic since some of their other dips do contain milk. I will post my reply.

What does everyone else make for dips?

Saskmommy,
I use the dill one with tofutti sourcream, it is great. I served it at a party and many of them men who were skeptical about soy products couldn't believe it was made with soy.

We put good old onion soup mix into Tofutti sour cream. It's not too bad, but I would love to check out the Uncle Dan ones!

Karen, what brand of onion soup mix? I can not seem to find one without a "may contain milk" warning.

We use NO Name onion soup mix. At last purchase, it did not have a milk warning.

I had not been using many no name/store brand products. However, I bought PC soy deli slices and phoned about them and the customer service was great. (YES, they are free of milk/eggs and the name brand st ives are not). I am getting a little more comfortable with store brand, much to my surprise a lot is free of milk, due to the fact that using water and/or vegetable oil is cheaper than milk and butter...oh well, thats great for us!

Susan - do you like this product?

We tried a canola-based fake mayo (bought at Hull Loblaws) and it was pretty tart stuff. Kind of like mayo with lots of vinegar added. I'm looking for another mayo sub that the kids will actually eat...

Ok - I couldn't resist...I found this recipe through Today's Parent magazine...Its great, super easy and a nice change from Hummus....I hope you don't mind I posted the recipe here...
An Italian twist on hummus, this is great with raw veggies or pita crisps.

19 oz (540 mL) can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
½ tsp (2 mL) dried oregano, crumbled
½ tsp (2 mL) salt
¼ tsp (1 mL) black pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped parsley

Yes, we like this and our daughter is not much of a dip person. I find it really tastes like mayonaise. I add a little relish and call it tartar sauce.
She likes it on Bacon and Tomato sandwiches but then, she would eat just about anything if it contained bacon and tomato :roll: .

Too funny - bacon and tomato sandwiches are becoming a staple in our house. Except that Xavier won't have tomato (bacon and margarine, anyone?) and Max won't have any spread (so plain toasted bread and bacon and tomato).

I will try to find that Earth Island Veganaise in Westboro. They have been agitating for safe mayo for awhile now....
