This ain't your grandma's ranch dressing! We've been having fun in our kitchen lately, testing various uses of JOI beyond milk. This ranch dressing is one of our favorites - it's the perfect pairing for your favorite salad, as a dip, or for drinking (hey, we don't judge). 100% vegan, gluten-free, and paleo, and keto-friendly.

Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing Made With JOI

What's in the recipe?

Open up that pantry (and a lemon! or a jar of vinegar!) - chances are you've got most of these ingredients on the shelf or in a spice rack already:
  • JOI Almond or Cashew milk concentrate
  • Fresh lemon juice (or vinegar!)
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper
  • Dill, dried or fresh.
  • Chives, dried or fresh 

Now here's the trivia:  what's NOT in the recipe??  Let's start with sour cream, milk or cream, yogurt.  If you've ditched dairy but still want a creamy comforting favorite, this is your solution!  The neutral-tasting JOI bases lend all the creaminess your tastebuds want - but the rest of your body doesn't ;)

How do you make this ranch dressing?

Making this recipe could not be more easy!  Just grab all your ingredients, throw them in a blender.  Whiz it up, and you're done!

How do I use this ranch?

Ranch is the quintessential creamy and versatile dressing.  Whether you're dressing a salad made of fragile leaves (butter lettuce) or robust sturdy ones (kale), this dressing blankets it beautifully.  It also works well as a dressing for a slaw, or even a tomato or cucumber salad!

Have leftovers?  Serve it in a bowl with some crudites (or chicken wings!).  Or as a sauce to top grilled vegetables.  

We know that "put an egg on it" is trending.  But we think "put ranch on it" may just be the new reigning fad.
