Vegan Ranch Dressing

June 9, 2011

I adapted this raw vegan ranch dressing recipe from Eva Rawposa from Uncooking 101.

This vegan ranch dressing is one of those recipes that will become like a little black dress in your culinary closet. It works for most occasions and never goes out of style.

This raw vegan ranch dressing is full of raw fresh ingredients, free of additives and preservatives, and really does taste similar to store-bought conventional ranch dressing.

Serve this ranch dressing over a simple salad, with buffalo cauliflower, or use as a dip for veggies sticks or crackers.

To use this ranch dressing as a dip, reduce the water by 1/4 cup and allow the dressing to thicken in the fridge. Chilled and thickened, this ranch dressing is also fantastic on sandwiches and wraps.

Tweak the fresh herbs to taste. Either way, give this raw vegan ranch dressing is incredible.


This VEGAN RANCH DRESSING is sooooo good. It's hard not to pour it on everything! GET THE FULL PRINTED RECIPE:
