Cashew Ranch Dressing is oil-free, creamy, and easy to make in minutes with only a few basic ingredients! It’s delicious on salads, tacos, and as a dip.
I’ve always been a fan of Ranch dressing.
And while it’s easy to find vegan versions in supermarkets these days, did you know it’s incredibly easy to make a much healthier version at home?
In fact, all you need to make oil-free Cashew Ranch Dressing is raw cashews, water, a few simple seasonings, and a blender!
You can also make Cashew Ranch Dressing to suit your taste.
If you prefer a more tangy dressing, you can add extra lemon juice or add some apple cider vinegar.
Do you like dill? Add some in!
Like your Ranch spicy? Try some ground chipotle.
The possibilities are endless!
Besides serving this dressing on salads, it also makes a great dip for fresh vegetables.
It thickens up a little in the refrigerator, so if you want a thinner sauce, you can add a little bit of water. I like to store it in a glass bottle or a squeeze bottle.
Now let’s make Cashew Ranch Dressing!
