Do you know you can have a plant-based ranch dressing with just a speck of the fats as the original? It's true!
I've mentioned before that we get a lot of families visiting throughout the year.
Something that I have missed having on hand is ranch dressing. Ed doesn't use it and I am vegan so those are good reasons why it doesn't show up in our refrigerator.
I remember, way back when, that I use to really like ranch dressing and for some reason, it seems to have become a favorite for the whole world. At least in my little world.
Since I have become so adventurous this year with homemade condiments such as my Homemade Almond Mayonnaise I thought why not tackle ranch dressing.

It was fun trying to figure out the seasonings for ranch dressing. I figured there was dill and probably a vinegar but the other seasonings were a hit and miss. Even when I missed they weren't too bad.

It is easy and delicious. I hope you will give it a try.

Dairy Free Ranch Dressing
- 1 cup cashews - soaked in water for at least 4 hours
- ¾ cup dairy-free milk - I used Almondmilk Light unsweetened
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- ½ teaspoon dried parsley
- ½ teaspoon dried chives
- ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Drain and put the soaked cashews in a food processor. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth.
- Add more dairy-free milk, if needed, to get the consistency of dressing.
- The flavors will meld after resting in the refrigerator.for a couple of hours but you can still use it immediately.

This will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
