Vegan Ranch Dressing


My kids say this tastes better than Ranch.  I'm not sure, however, that they have actually ever had the traditional dairy version of the Southern dressing :).  But I will take the compliment!

We use this one on salads or for dipping sauces for home-made chicken nuggets or veggies.  Super quick and easy, and free of dairy, eggs, gluten, nuts, and most allergens.  Win!

Dressing

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Veganaise (we use the soy-free version)
  • 1/4 cup pickle juice (that's right, pickle juice- trust me!)  I love Bubbies cultured bread and butter chips
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder or 1/4 tsp minced fresh garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp dry Italian seasoning (or blend of rosemary, oregano, marjoram, basil)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-3 Tbsp water, if needed

Method

  • Mix all ingredients in a blender until combined.  
  • If using it for a salad dressing add 2-3 additional Tbs water to thin it out to desired consistency.  You may not want to add any water, or just a little, if you are using as a dipping sauce.
  • Enjoy and watch your kiddos eat their raw veggies!
