This wonderful dairy free ranch dressing is rich and creamy without any dairy at all.

Ranch dressing is an American staple. We eat it on salads, burgers, as dip for vegetables or french fries and a myriad of other uses. But ranch is a buttermilk based dressing which some folks just cannot tolerate, including me.

Ranch Dressing Mix

For this dressing, I used my homemade ranch dressing mix. It’s a dry mix you can easily make in a minute or two with basic spices you most likely have in your spice cabinet.

Dairy Free Ranch Dressing Base

For this recipe, I used mayo as the base. I then thinned it out with the almond milk and added the spices, which gave me a nice, rich dressing.

The consistency was a little thicker than something out of a store-bought bottle. So if you want a thinner dressing, add a bit more almond milk than the recipe calls for.

I recommend making the recipes as is, and then adding in the almond milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach the consistency you like.

And if you want it thicker, for dip, simply use slightly less almond milk. Start with 2 tbsp. almond milk instead of the quarter cup. You can always add more if it’s too thick for your liking.

What You Need To Make This Ranch Dressing

½ cup mayonnaise – You can make your own or purchase a good quality mayo. Avoid any brand with added sugar.

¼ cup unsweetened almond milk – You can use any non-dairy milk, but almond milk tends to have the most benign flavor, so it won’t interfere with a good ranch flavor.

1 tbsp. ranch mix – See link above – only takes a minute to make!

¼ tsp. ground black pepper – White pepper can work too, but black pepper tastes best.

¼ tsp. salt – I used pink Himalayan salt, but use what you have on hand.

How To Store Dairy Free Ranch Dressing

This dressing will keep for up to a week if kept in the fridge. It only makes a scant ¾ cup, so you won’t have a ton left over anyway. If you love salad, this should be enough for a week of salads.
