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. This makes about a cup of dressing or dip. Photos by Evan Atlas.

      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!
