Ranch dressing is usually made with buttermilk or other dairy ingredients, but not this time! My homemade ranch dressing is made with fresh parsley, dill and other plant-based ingredients. It’s really the best tasting ranch I’ve had, and better than anything store-bought. Other than it being super easy to make, the benefit of making it at home are having no added chemicals or preservatives that would otherwise been added. This dressing is great to drizzle on any salad or even as a dip for vegetables, so be sure to keep this stocked up in your fridge!
Yields 2-3 servings
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 cup vegan sour cream, (optional)
1/4 cup cashew milk
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. Vitacost Himalayan Fine Pink Salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. fresh dill
1/2 tsp. chives
1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- In your blender, add all of the dressing ingredients (except parsley, dill, and chives) and blend until well mixed. Mix in the herbs and set in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld together.
Chef’s tip: Feel free to add some cayenne pepper or some sriracha to make this ranch spicy!
