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?

Yay for salad inhalation!

Did you find it too vinegary?

OK---I just made that second batch, and I can re-confirm that the vinegar level is spot on!

The only additions I made were a dash of Herbamare, a dash of TJ's 21 Seasoning Salute, and a dash of crushed red pepper. (That's my lucky trinity that I add to all my savory creations.) And, I used raw honey instead of agave.

I just put the bottle of the dressing in the fridge to set and chill, and I had to use all my will power to refrain from chugging it!

Lol Deb. Good, glad about the vinegar.
Thanks for coming back with an update. Sometimes I worry that I mistype things in my excitement :)

One year update: (Funny, I just decided to make this dressing again, and I saw that I made my last comment about in a year [and a day] ago!)

If you add a red bell pepper to the mix, you get a Thousand Island Dressing! (Who needs Kraft anyway?!?)

Hi Laura-Jane,

I just saw your comment as I re-visted this page to make yet another batch of your kick-a$$ ranch dressing! (I starting craving it on my bike ride, and I knew I had to make it when I got home!)

To answer your question--I did not find the dressing too vinegary at all. I'm a fan of apple cider vinegar and its bite, so maybe I'm a bit bias, but I thought the acidity level was just right.

Time to make some more!

Let the salad inhalation begin....

I don't know where I went wrong- or if I did but I made this and it was soooo vinegary I couldn't stand it and had to throw it out =/ In defense, I was hoping for a more Hidden Valley flavored ranch, I hate vingar ones.

Thanks for your feedback Jess. I will have to try it again to make sure that I typed out the recipe properly. Has anyone else made this lately?

It does have a lot of zip.

MMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!! I altered this recipe (sorry) because I like ranch to be more peppery & less "tart"; I am posting my revision on my online recipe book/blog with kudos to you-it is SO GOOD! YUM!!! Thanks so much for this, it tastes even better than SAD ranch. :))

About how much does this make? Looks like maybe 1 cup or so? And how long should it keep in the fridge?

Keeps in fridge for about 5 days or so.

Not sure, probably makes 1.5 cups or so.
