Clean Food Dirty Girl, Whole Food Plant Based Oil Free Salad Dressing Recipe That Tastes Like Ranch
  • Why do I like it?

It is so quick and easy to prepare.  It makes a big enough batch to last for several days to a week in the fridge.  It tastes great over salad, cooked veggies and baked potatoes.  The flavor is not too heavy - it is just right.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

Nothing!  But I do have a few preparation notes: 

I would recommend blending all ingredients - except the dill - first then add the dill so the mixture doesn't turn green!

This sauce is designed as a salad dressing.  To make it a pasta sauce, I warmed it on the stove and reduced it slightly.  Don't reduce it too much or it will be too thick.  A double batch of this recipe covers a 10 oz box of pasta.

I added in some roasted broccolini and gluten free breadcrumbs mixed with nutritional yeast.  Additionally, I drizzled a small amount of the dressing over the top.
