Vegan Ranch Dressing

Thick Rich Delicious Multi-Talented Salad Dressing or Sauce

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Vegan Ranch Dressing: Easy all purpose salad dressing or sauce. We love it on salads, steamed veggies, in tacos, on lentil patties. It will even stand in as a stir fry, hollandaise, or pasta sauce.

Make it a thick, rich sauce by replacing non-dairy milk with more vegan mayo, or silken tofu. Thin it with more non-dairy milk to make it a more pourable dressing.

This vegan saucey dressing is a big recipe, and keeps well in the fridge, ready to perform more culinary magic.

Recipe Tips:

Garlic is optional in this recipe because I'm not a fan of raw garlic. Add as much garlic as YOU like!

Make this dressing low fat by using all silken tofu and no mayonnaise. It will not be as creamy though.

With 1/4 cup almond or soy milk, this is a thick dressing. It's easily made thinner by adding more non-dairy milk.
