Vegan Ranch Dressing
This vegan ranch is made with soaked and blended cashews. It's ultra creamy, loaded with ranch flavor and perfect for salads or as a dip!
- 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked 4-6 hours or overnight
- 1/2 cup fresh water
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- pinch of black pepper
Soak cashews by adding to a large bowl or glass and covering with water by at least 2 inches. Once cashews are soft, drain and rinse.
Add drained cashews into a high powered blender or food processor with 1/2 cup fresh water, apple cider vinegar, dill, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
Blend dressing until completely smooth. Makes about 1/2 cup.
Use dressing as you would regular ranch. On salad or as a dip. See more ideas above.
Store leftover ranch dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should keep for 5-
- Quick Soak for Cashews: If you don't have time to soak the cashews for 3-4 hours, you can use a quick soak method. Add cashews and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and remove from the heat. Let cashews soak in the boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain and use in the recipe as directed.
