My favorite is my Sweet and Sour Celery Seed Dressing. Message me if you'd like the recipe.

Ideas you could google:
1) Avocado dressing with lime juice and cilantro (one of my faves)
2) Tahini/soy/ginger dressing, similar to Annie's Goddess (not Green Goddess!)
3) Another alternative is to use silken tofu to get a creamy salad dressings.

Good luck.

You can also make a creamy honey mustard with a combination of yogurt and creme fraiche instead of the mayo.

I love honey mustard dressing... all you need is mayonnaise, honey, mustard, and lemon juice.

i love using yogurt in salad dressings. my favorite is just some plain Greek yogurt, enough lemon juice to thin it out to your liking, the zest of said lemon, salt and pepper, and maybe a little thyme or tarragon or whatever herbs you happen to have on hand. delicious!

One of my favorites, a tarragon buttermilk dressing. It's very light, and so delicious. Note to self: Make it soon!!

I'm also a fan of Alton Brown's fake caesar dressing: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/no-guilt-caesar-recipe/index.html
