While I don’t know who originally tossed this dressing together, I can say it’s delicious! This dressing is one of my daughter Melissa, and her friend Chelsea’s favorites (I’ve also added their notes) This ranch dressing is pHabulous on sammies, especially salad wrap sammies, of course salads, and I’ve added my notes for making it a rich vege dip.
Traditional Dairy Version: Use same recipe, substituting dairy products for non-dairy or vegan, i.e., Veganaise, use mayonaise, etc.
Not Your Mom’s Ranch Dressing (makes 1 cup)
Blend the following together with a wire whip, mixer, or blender.
1/2 cup Veganaise (or another vegan mayo)
3/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 c. milk (almond, coconut, soy)
1/4 tsp of each: ground black pepper, unbleached sea salt, garlic powder
A couple of shakes of vegan parmesan
Notes: Melissa and Chelsea use a lot more seasoning than the recipe calls for, and prefer almond milk for best flavor.
Dip Note: Maraline suggests for extra richness, blend finished recipe with 2T. of Tofutti or vegan cream cheese!
