Vegan Ranch Dressing
Ranch dressing is a popular American condiment, it is a delicious sauce often used with pizzas, salads and wings. It typically contains buttermilk but I have made a plant-based, dairy-free vegan alternative. This vegan ranch dressing recipe combines plant-based yoghurt, vegan mayonnaise, lemon and herbs. My vegan ranch dressing recipe is easy to follow, has simple ingredients and is above all tasty! Even non-vegans will love it. Oh and don’t worry, you do not have to finish it within a day, this ranch dressing should last in your fridge for up to a week. Whilst you’re here if you are looking for a dish to enjoy this with, check out my vegan “wings” recipe or my summer salad recipe. I hope you’ll love this delicious recipe as much as I do!
- 100g vegan mayonnaise
- 100g unsweetened soy yoghurt/ unsweetened almond yoghurt
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 the juice of a medium-sized lemon
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp mustard
- 1 tbsp chopped chives (fresh or dried)
- 1/2 tbsp dill (optional)
Step 1: Firstly, prepare an 8 oz jar or a smallish bowl to mix the ingredients in. Then, prep the garlic and chives, by grating the garlic finely and chopping the chives into small pieces as you do not want big chunks of garlic or chives in the ranch dressing.
Step 2: Then, put the mayonnaise, yoghurt, lemon juice, onion powder, grated garlic, mustard and salt into the jar/bowl. Note: in my opinion, a jar works best as you can use it to store the vegan dressing in for up to a week.
If you are using a jar, then place a lid on top and shake it until the dressing is smooth and glossy. Otherwise, whisk it in a bowl until it is well combined. Note: if it is too thick, you may need to add a little more lemon juice.
Step 3: Finally, add in the chop chives and stir until combined. Then, taste it, you may re-season it with salt to your taste preference. Enjoy!
