This homemade ranch dressing is the perfect accompaniment for your next veggie tray or Cauliflower Buffalo Wings. Not only is it dairy free, it is very easy to make.
I love when I can make easy dressing recipes at home. The store bought ones always tend to have unpronounceable ingredients in them. As a general rule, I try not to buy anything that has ingredients I’ve either never heard of, or cannot pronounce. It’s usually a good indication of highly processed, or highly chemical type ingredients. I’m sure there are exceptions, but as I said, it’s a general rule of mine that I try to follow most of the time.
This homemade ranch dressing uses only a few simple ingredients, and a simple method. First soak your cashews in boiling water for only 15 minutes. Then, toss everything into your high powered blender (I use a Vitamix) and give it a whirl. Process until smooth and creamy, then use as a dip for your favourite recipes. I like to refrigerate mine for at least an hour before using. I do prefer the flavour of this dip chilled, however, you may also use warm if preferred. This dip is a great make ahead option as it may be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
