I like to mash up an avocado and mix it with just enough oil (olive, coconut, grapeseed,etc) to make it a thick dressing.

1. plain extra virgin olive oil, salt & cracked pepper (dried dill optional) good on rinsed drained canned beans, soft leaf lettuces
2. one cup shredded slaw* to plain mayo1 Tablespoon :1 Tablespoon sugar free pancake syrup ratio- if you like restaurant coleslaw you'll like that....celery seed optional (no sugar, salt, vinegar, nor milk needed) *carrot salad raisins & pie spices optional
3. stir in a little ground ginger to soy sauce & sugar free pancake syrup for Asian dressing- oil optional-
Tessamae brand is available at Kroger and is non-dairy and delicious! My favorite is the Ranch. I can't find dairy-free Ranch anywhere else! It may also be available at Whole Foods or your local natural foods store. I also like to just use plain old olive oil (no more than a tablespoon due to fat content) and balsamic vinegar. For a "cheesy" twist, I dump on a tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast, also available at Kroger and natural foods stores.
Tahini (or sesame oil) mixed with water, ginger, garlic, and tamari Hummus thinned with water (leave out the lemon juice) Blend an avocado with a little salt, pepper, water, and a touch of olive oil Silken tofu and herbs with a bit of salt makes a passable (if a little boring) ranch-style dressing; if she can do mayo and/or buttermilk, it's tastier Sometimes I just sprinkle furikake (roasted sesame "rice topping" you can get in an Asian store) or gomashio (roasted sesame seeds ground with salt) on my salad and don't put any dressing
I use beans blended up and add seasoning; black beans with cumin, cilantro, and you can add tomatoes (if tolerated) or just water to blend into consistency you want. Might try chicken, beef, or vegetable stock, or milk or buttermilk??
Any bean works; lentils, pintos, white beans, I have even blended up a can of vegetarian baked beans. Tastes great & extra fiber. Canned beans are easy to keep on hand.
Make sure to drain the can and rinse off salt if you're serous about sodium issues, otherwise I've dumped all and not bad to add too much other liquid.
Olive oil is delicious and healthy too. I love it.

You can use ginger as an almost acidic substitute, and it's even a wonderful supplement for gastrointestinal issues. There are some really yummy carrot ginger dressing recipes out there, kind of like a Japanese steakhouse dressing.

Dairy free ranch...use whatever mayo she can tolerate either homemade or store bought, add coconut milk or any nut milk, dill, garlic, chives, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix to a dressing consistency.
Make your own mayo without vinegar! You can use egg whites or whole eggs added to extra virgin olive oil. Use water to thin to the consistency you want. Add whatever spice and herbs work for you. Oregano, salt, and pepper added to your mayo make a simple salad dressing. If you want a lemony flavor try sumac, you can find it at your international market.
I have a friend who can't eat acids, too, which means many fruits and veggies, as well as dairy are off the menu. I do understand what you are going through. I also know that chocolate, caffeine, and mint are to be avoided. Not fun, but it can be done. Good luck!
I like to make hummus and mix it with tahini and some water until it's a dressing consistency.

Lemon Peel doesn't seem to affect people where perhaps the juice would. You may like to think about adding a little to some avocado and blitz it with a little water and oil to make it a 'dressing' consistency. You could also try a little cooked garlic in it as well or instead of the lemon peel Microwaving a clove for about 15 seconds should do the trick.
Plain Greek Yoghurt is also another option, and perhaps add some herbs to it to dress it up a bit.
Most vinegar's are high acid, which I can not tolerate, in the health food section you will find organic apple cider vinegar with "mother" in it, this is the only type of natural vinegar available, it works different in the body then any other vinegar's, it also helps with a lot of medical problems & is advised to add it daily to water you drink as well as lemon.do not buy it in the regular vinegar section of grocery stores, do not drink any vinegar unless it is mixed with something else. The advised amount is 2 tablespoons in 6 glasses of water put in a jug to have daily. I am allergic to dairy as well, I do use coconut or olive oil as extra virgin olive oil in green bottles is the only real olive oil available, it is the law, if in clear bottles it is always mislabeled & light or olive oil that does not say extra virgin has other oils mixed in so it can be used for cooking at a high temperature. This type of olive oil is organic regardless of what it states on the bottle. All other oils are highly toxic except organic canola oil & can cause many serious side effects.
