I am happy to share with you my best version of a vegan Ranch dressing. It is thick, creamy, garlicky and yes, maybe even addictive. Did I mention that it is indeed, oil free, nut free, dairy free, gluten free and still packed with amazing flavor. Tom and I are both obsessed with this dressing.
This recipe took me a long time perfect. I probably have made a version of it every month for the past year! I am not kidding. I tried it with white beans, hemp seeds, cauliflower, dried herbs, fresh herbs, lemon juice, vinegar, soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, tofu and the list goes on. I have spent a small fortune on ingredients and lots of time on recipe testing for this one. All of my attempts were indeed tasty but I was holding out for the one that I felt tasted most like a standard American Ranch dressing but without all the fat and sodium.
Let’s remember that I haven’t actually tasted a regular non vegan ranch dressing since about 2012 so my memory may be a little fuzzy. I hope this dressing will live up to everyone’s high expectations. What I do know is that this dressing is incredibly delicious and we can’t stop finding ways to enjoy it even outside of having it on a salad.
It looks like a lot of ingredients but it’s all readily available ingredients. These are the brands of products I use but you can use whatever brands you prefer. To make a good plant based salad dressing you need 5 components. Something to create a creamy base, acid, sweet, salty and aromatics.
