Vegan Plant Based Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing. I don’t know any kids raised during the 80’s and 90’s that isn’t familiar with ranch dressing. It was considered a healthy dip for veggies and was about the only dressing that mothers could get to eat on an iceberg lettuce salad.

Now, however, we know that dairy is not actually healthy for us and buttermilk happens to be the base for ranch dressing. So, I have here a healthy recipe that will curb your “need” for the unhealthy ranch dressing. You can use it on salads or use it as a dip for veggies just like your mamma used to do.


1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews
2 Tbsp raisins
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried dill weed
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp Braggs Liquid Amino Acids
1/2 cup filtered water

Add all to a blender and blend until smooth.

    OMG…Thank you., Thank you, Thank you. I was getting so sick of tahini dressings, but never found another one that tasted good. This reminds me of onion soup mix, and so yummy. So excited to try your other recipes.

    What is “Braggs liquid amino acids”? and can you use something else instead. I am in Denmark and this is not a product we have here. Thanks.

    Do you think dates would work ok? I don’t typically have raisins. Thank you

    Could you substitute white beans for the cashews?

      I think that would work =)


  11. Currently it seems like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
