The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Don't believe me that this could taste as good as old-school SAD (standard American diet) ranch? Just try it. I dare ya :)

Raw ranch dressing is another one of those things that I cannot believe it's possible to replicate raw. But, hallelujah, it is possible.

There is nothing like a nice fresh carrot dipped in raw ranch dressing, no?

And I have even had the pleasure of dipping my raw vegan pizza in raw ranch dressing. "Cue heavenly harp sound...."

So here's my favourite raw ranch dressing recipe for you... I use it basically like a normal salad dressing or dip. I usually make one batch and serve it as a vegetable dip, salad dressing and maybe even on a few more exciting things, like in a raw vegan BLT sandwich or dip raw pizza in it if I am feeling particularly daring.

Of course, you also know that the best vegetables to dip in raw ranch dressing are carrots and broccolli, right?

Hi Deborah, that is unusual. Is your blender very strong? I'm thinking maybe it isn't but it's hard to say. HOWEVER, you can certainly try soaking the cashews next time for a better result.

This is a fabulous recipe. My Kids usually run when I mention RAW but they tried it and couldn't believe how good it was. We dipped fresh broccoli spears, celery, purple carrots and spring onions (lightly covered in celtic sea salt) into it and it was sensational.

I skipped on the dill and the sweetener and used slightly less water, 5 tablespoons of lemon, 3 large cloves garlic and half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Thank you Rawtarian :)

Hi Blackie, you paired it with the perfect veggies too! I usually am not a huge broc fan but this recipe just goes really well with broc for some reason.

If your little ones tend to run for the hills maybe you need to reverse-psychology them - "nope, nope, this recipe isn't raw. no sirree bob!"

WOW! This was my first raw condiment recipe and I was pretty skeptical...I love ranch...it's my weakness. First batch...amazing! My husband loved it too! I like A LOT of flavor so I tweaked the recipe a little. More garlic, more herbs, tons of fresh cracked black pepper, waaaay less honey and 1/2 the ACV. I've already told my friends about the site. YOU ROCK!! Thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness, delicious. I don't usually have dressings as they are full of preservatives and other yucky things! The test was husband and kids......PASSED! Would love to know how long it lasts as the recipe makes a large amount. :)

I love love love loooooveeee this dressing. I use it with kale, tomato, and avocado (sometimes I add chicken bc I'm not entirely raw ;). Tastes just like a BBQ chicken salad!!

New rawtarian here, sorry if this has already been posted and answered. In recipes using ANY nuts are they ALL meant to have been soaked and dehydrated first? Or is that always in the directions if needed? Thanks for this great site!

Hi Richard, In my recipes you do not need to soak/dehydrate unless I specifiy to do so in the recipe :) Nuts should be dry (unless I clearly state otherwise). Hope this helps!

Thank you so much! Putting my first batch of cracker dough in the dehydrator. You're wonderful!
