You can't go wrong with a ranch dressing that's tasty and healthful. Enjoy it on salads, veggie wraps or as a dip for raw vegetables.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List

Ingredients:

1 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white rice vinegar
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons nutritional yeast (optional)
1/2 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos or low sodium soy sauce or kelp granules (optional)

Instructions:

In a medium sized bowl, add two cups of boiling water to the raw cashews. Allow to soak for 5-10 minutes before draining the liquid.

In a high-powered blender, combine the cashews (soaked and drained), non-dairy milk, fresh lemon juice, and white rice vinegar. Blend until creamy and smooth, adding more non-dairy milk to reach the desired consistency.

Add all of the spices and dried herbs and blend for several seconds to combine.

Allow to chill in the fridge before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge; it will keep for several days.

I think this dressing is one of the best recipes I've found. I sometimes use cashew butter instead of the raw cashews. I also add 2 T. of tahini.

This is a great dressing and I don't like ranch dressing. Had it as a dip.

This is the best nutritarian dressing I have made so far. It is delicious and very creamy. I used it as a veggie dip. I can see using it on some lentil or chick pea pasta with veggies as a macaroni salad.
