Vegan Ranch Dressing served over a salad

I love a beautiful salad, especially when you have a great dressing to go with it.  This time of year salad ingredients are in abundance; you can get so many varieties and create gorgeous healthy salads that just oose with nutrients and antioxidants.  Yet in my opinion, the key to a fantabulous salad is really in the dressing; it can make or break the salad.  So today, I am sharing my favorite vegan Ranch Dressing recipe.  

This dressing can be added to a variety of different recipes.   Pour it over a salad, or used as a dip or dipping sauce for many wonderful dishes.  It is great on corn dogs, buffalo wings, or even onion rings.  Recipes can be taken to the next level with a splash of ranch dressing.

Personally, I love to pour vegan ranch dressing on my pizza, a habit I developed in Europe early in life!  If you haven’t tried it yet, you should give it a try; it may just change your life:). 

Who invented Ranch dressing?

Ranch dressing is an American staple.  It’s enjoyed on salads and used as a condiment.  It was first invented by Steve Henson in 1954, who served it to his guests on his Dude Ranch. This buttermilk dressing invention quickly became a huge success and is now an American favorite.

Why would you make a “Plant-Based” or “Vegan” Ranch Dressing?

You can find ranch dressing just about everywhere, so why make it vegan?  The truth is that a plant-based salad dressing is much better for you: less fat, no cholesterol, and more nutrients.  Besides, this stunning Ranch Dressing does not sacrifice taste, texture, or creaminess. 

Let’s be honest; I take my Ranch Dressing very seriously.  It must be creamy, beautiful, and ‘show-stoppingly’ delicious.  This Vegan Ranch recipe checks all of those boxes for me and more.  Plus, I feel great after eating it without adding a lot of extra fat to the arteries or waistline.

This recipe is one of my top favorite recipes.  As a base I use my “Easy Vegan Mayonnaise” recipe, which takes less than 10 minutes to make.  From there, the recipe is an absolute cinch.  

So if you are looking for a delicious Ranch Dressing that will add a creamy element and pop of flavor to your life, then try my Vegan Ranch recipe. 

I hope you enjoy this show-stopping recipe as much as I do!
