Creamy Ranch Dressing - Vegan

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This really turned out great. It does get quite thick in the fridge. To use on salad I simply added a couple of spoonfuls to chopped romaine lettuce, and then tossed to coat the leaves evenly, much like a thick Caesar salad dressing. Because it gets so nice and thick, I think this would be a great dip for raw veggies, chips or pitas. For a creamier dressing, soak cashews in water for about an hour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend cashews, soy milk, lemon, vinegar and olive oil until creamy and smooth.
  2. Be patient because this sometimes can take a while.
  3. Add remaining spices and blend until combined.
  4. Check salt and adjust as needed.
  5. This dressing will get thicker in the fridge.

Little oily for us but the flavor wasn't too bad. I ended up adding some dillweed and a shake of chili powder.

Very tasty! Very garlicky--I might cut down the garlic to two cloves next time, but then again, maybe I won't. Garlicky is a good thing! Thanks for posting!
