Ranch Dressing

Thank you Gena for sharing this recipe – I love choosingraw.com

Raw Ranch Dressing (Yields 1 ½ cups, or so)

¾ cup cashews, soaked for at least two hours

½ cup water

2 tbsp lemon juice

¼ cup apple cider vinegar (a little more if you like it more tart)

3 tbsp olive oil

¼-½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. dried thyme

½ tsp dried oregano

*1 clove garlic 

 *½ tsp onion powder

3 tbsp fresh dill

 3 tbsp fresh parsley

 

* I personally do not include these for specific reasons, but if you want more of a ‘traditional’ ranch flavor – go ahead and put ‘em in!

Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender – OR blend all ingredients except for the oil in a food processor, and drizzle the oil in until the mixture is creamy and emulsified.

When dressing is blended, chop an additional few tablespoons of herbs and mix them in.

Enjoy on top of a big green salad, or on a sandwich – raw sandwich that is!

…Such as on some amazing tomato bread!
