Vegan Ranch Dressing or Dip

Vegan ranch dressing with raw veggies

Ranch dressing is challenging to find ready-made in a dairy-free vegan version, so this simple and versatile recipe comes to the rescue. As a dip, this is great with raw veggies; as a dressing, use on green salads, slaws, pasta salads, and potato salads. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Makes: about 1 cup

  • 2/3 cup plain coconut yogurt (or one 6-ounce container
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
    or 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning blend (such as Frontier or Mrs. Dash)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. If you plan to use this as a dressing, add 1/4 cup water. If you plan to use it as a dip, add 1 tablespoon water. Either way, whisk together until smooth

To use as dressing, transfer to a tightly lidded cruet or bottle. If using as a dip, leave in the bowl to serve. Shake or stir well before each use.

    Hi Karine — the only really decent alternative to dairy yogurt is coconut yogurt. I do think it’s very good, though it tends to be a bit pricey. I think almond milk yogurt has made an appearance on the market, but I haven’t tried it yet. I’m sorry to say this but I think soy yogurt is vile. Good luck!
