Vegan Ranch Dressing Recipe

Vegan Ranch Dressing recipe is so rich, creamy, easy to prepare from simple ingredients, its way better than store-bought and keeps in the refrigerator for a week.

Is Ranch Dressing Vegan?

Regular ranch dressing is not vegan, it contains dairy products like mayonnaise, buttermilk, and sour cream. 

When I first became vegan over 20 years ago, I made a lot of homemade salad dressings because honestly you really had to because there weren’t many palatable options (if any) on the market.

Nowadays, there are the store-bought vegan ranch dressings brands like Hampton Creek and Daiya. They are best for back up because they aren’t really as wholesome as homemade salad dressings.

I love to make this vegan ranch for special occasions, it is good for 1 week refrigerated so it can be made fresh weekly. Use half the water and it makes a lovely dip for Cauliflower Nuggets or Baked Tofu Nuggets.
