Whole 30 Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing is my all-time favorite, and apparently a lot of you feel the same way. My Dairy-free Ranch Dressing has been one of my most popular posts since it went live in August of 2013. When I set out to create a Whole 30 Ranch Dressing, I looked at my original recipe and realized that it was almost Whole 30 compliant, I  just need to make one small tweak.

It was already dairy-free, but regular mayonnaise contains sugar…duht duht duhhhh. So I created my own Whole 30 Mayonnaise and voila, Whole 30 Ranch Dressing!! And best of all, it is still super easy to make.

How to make Whole 30 Ranch Dressing:

Pour milk into a mason jar, or bowl. Add the apple cider vinegar and allow to sit and “curdle” for 5 to 10 minutes. This is when I chop up my Italian parsley and green onions.

Add the mayonnaise, parsley, green onions, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper.

Milk, mayonnaise, green onions, and garlic layered in a glass jar.

This is just a standard “pint” size mason jar. Place the lid on the jar and shake to combine, or whisk ingredients together in a bowl.

BAM….it really is that easy to create a insanely delicious Whole 30 Ranch Dressing that your entire family will love! The kids won’t know the difference, although they will probably like it better, and you can feel good about making a dressing that does not contain MSG or other crazy, unhealthy ingredients. {I’m allergic to MSG, natural or not, it is an unnecessary additive in processed foods}

Recipe Notes:

  • Whole 30  Mayonnaise is not as thick as regular {Best Foods} mayonnaise, so this dressing is a bit more on the thin side. I still use it to “dip” my chicken into, but your kids might make a bigger mess when dunking.
  • I used CashewMilk because I am allergic to coconut, but CoconutMilk works great as well. AlmondMilk will be much thinner, but still delicious.
  •  This dressing is good for a week, if it lasts that long. Vinegar kills bacteria, which is why ketchup lasts so long. It’s the breaking down of the green onions and parsley that matter, so use the freshest ingredients that you can.
  • Technically boxed Unsweetened CashewMilk or AlmondMilk are not compliant, but I am severely allergic to coconut!! Substitute canned unsweetened coconut milk (Thai brand) to stay truly compliant or make your own almond milk at home. This is one area that I decided to not worry about, I’m not using that much.

Now you are ready to make lots of healthy green salads, right? 😉 This Clean Cobb Salad is Whole 30 compliant if you leave off the Roquefort cheese, and use Whole 30 bacon.
