I know what you’re thinking. A mayo and buttermilk-free ranch dressing…really, Vicki?

Vegan Ranch Dressing

And I totally get why you’d be skeptical.

But trust me when I tell you that this vegan ranch rivals the original in every way. It’s the perfect blend of creamy, tangy, umami deliciousness and it’s a thousand times better for you.

Saul and I have been eating it drizzled over E-V-E-R-Y-thing – grilled salads, raw veggies, roasted potatoes, veggie burgers, corn on the cob, sliced avocado, a bowl of lentils – it’s just that good.

Don’t believe me? Just try it.
