Homade Vegan Dressing Recipes

From the people over at Sprouts Farmer's Market in Arizona is this incredibly useful info-graph detailing several good homemade vegan dressing recipes. I am a huge fan of the Orange Ginger and the Sweet Basil.

One tip, you can double, or more, the recipes to make bigger portions. I took the Orange Ginger to a client's picnic last summer where it was a huge hit among everyone there.You can also modify ingredients too. I prefer a lot more garlic and usually end up doubling it in those recipes that call for it.

How would modify these recipes to your tastes?
