Raw ranch?!?


I’ve made vegan ranch dressing for years now. It’s one of my favorite toppings for taco salads, and of course a necessity for dipping vegan wings in. My usual recipe is mostly just vegan mayo, soy milk, and spices. I just came up with this though, and not obit is it healthier, the texture and flavor are way better too! Win-win!

I have a million cucumbers from the dumpster lately, and got a nice ripe avocado last night. The ranch dressing is just two peeled cucumbers and an avocado blended until smooth (more or less avocado to thin it out). Then I added lots of dill (about two tablespoons), minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and some chives.

This is definitely going to be a staple recipe for me! We ate it over fajitas tonight — it went great with carrot nacho cheese — and it got the seal of approval from omnis and vegans both. Score!

    Thanks! I really loved it and it seemed like everyone else did too… it’s definitely going to be a go-to recipe from here on out. I’m putting the leftovers on a carrot/spinach salad to take to work tomorrow and already can’t wait to eat it!

    Yum! I am definitely going to try this! Did I miss the carrot queso post?

    Let me know how it goes! I’m always interested in feedback… or better yet — post your own results here!

    Nope, you didn’t miss the carrot-queso. I know… I’m slacking! I’ve made it a few times since then, but I’ve either been in a hurry, or didn’t have all the ingredients and just threw together a pseudo-version of it. I really want to do it right when I post it… step-by-step photos, all the ingredients measured out, etc. I’ll try to get to it soon!
