Whip up this creamy, rich vegan ranch dressing recipe for your next barbecue or picnic. Whether it’s drizzled over a salad or served alongside fries for dipping, this ranch dressing is an all-American classic. Plus, with this dairy-free recipe, vegans and those with lactose allergies can at last enjoy this essential dressing.
Eggless mayo serves as the perfect base for this vegan ranch. It blends with almond milk, fresh chives, fragrant parsley, and a sprinkling of other spices to create a delicious dip and dressing.
The key to creamy vegan ranch is making sure to keep the liquid amount low in order to maintain the thick texture. You can always add more liquid if using it as a salad dressing. Just add a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
As veganism goes mainstream, there are quite a few store-bought vegan ranch dressings now available. This option may seem easier, but you’ll be sacrificing flavor and spending more money than you would in making your own.
For a healthy party snack, serve with fresh cut veggies and crackers. The best part of this dip is that it is adult and kid-friendly! Even the pickiest of eaters should enjoy dipping their celery into this creamy dip.
