The Best Ranch Dressing EVER
This is an older recipe that I'm now giving it's own post for ease of access. It can also be found with my Bacon Ranch Cauliflower Dippers. This is the best paleo ranch dressing/dip out there. I promise you'll agree. I use this with everything. Always with my buffalo sliders, fritters, wings, raw veggies, sweet potato fries and obviously on salad! It seriously lasts about 5 seconds here because we practically drink the stuff once it's made.
I use avocado oil for ranch and mayo derived recipes, but I know many people do not have access to it, so I list extra light oil as an option. Either tastes good, but avocado had greater health benefits. Do NOT use extra virgin olive oil. It will not be edible. I've made this mistake. You can read more in my "Notes about my Recipes" section.
The procedure is just like mayo making, so you can use whatever device works for you- blender, immersion stick blender, hand whisking. I use a cheap food processor and have never once had a failed emulsion! I have a video on Instagram, check #plgmayo to watch me make mayo!
***NEW- I've added my Egg-free Ranch recipe at the bottom.
2/3 cup extra light olive oil or avocado oil
1 room temperature egg
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1 tbsp dried herbs or handful chopped fresh herbs (my favorite to use is dill, followed by cilantro and/or parsley)
2 Tbsp full fat unsweetened canned coconut milk
1. Place the egg, 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar, spices and herbs (everything but the coconut milk) in the food processor. Pulse a few times.
2. Measure out 2/3 cup oil.
3. Slowly pour the oil in through the top holes of the food processor, with your finger on the grind button constantly. It will take a few minutes to get it all in.
4. Once all the oil has been added in, add the coconut milk and pulse a few more times.
