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?

Used pine nuts instead of cashews and more garlic! Very good recipe to satisfy cravings for richer raw food.

Yum, I love pine nuts but they are very expensive here in Canada. So glad you liked your dressing Justin!

Is it safe to use the whole ranch dressing recipe on a big salad and will I gain weight?

Hi Dario,

Yes, using the entire recipe on one serving is definitely too much. I eat very large, meal sized salads and this recipe lasts for approx 4  big salads for me. It definetly does depend on the size of your salad though.

Hope this helps!

OMG This is INCREDIBLE! I have to be honest, Ive made raw recipes from other websites that turned out very mediocre but every time I make something from here it is delicious! Like some of the other comments I only added half the amount of apple cider or even less. This makes staying raw so much easier. Thank you!

I love this dressing! I was wondering yesterday if I could find a dressing I like as much as traditional Ranch and now I have! I put just a dash of vinegar and didn't have onion powder so added a little raw onion and it was perfect! Thanks!!!

This is too vinegary for our taste although we still like it! I will make this again with little to no vinegar and adjust from there. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! It got me started and was so simple in the food processor. :)

This is a pretty good recipe but I wouldn't suggest using any sweetener (honey or agave) and I also would strongly suggest to either cut back A LOT on apple cider vinegar or don't use it at all.

If you're making a raw mayo I would say you'd need the apple cider vinegar for that but not for raw ranch. Just doesn't jive well. Way too vinegary.

This is absolutely delicious I take a bowl of cut up vegetables to work but find it all a bit boring so have been trying different dipping sauces. This consistency was a bit thin for dipping so next time will use a bit less water. I think it is also very high in calories but I guess if I just eat a little a day it should be ok. I am new to your site and am also making Chia Seed tapioca I cut down on both recipes the amount of cashews (watching calories) THANKYOU BOTH RECIPES DELICIOUS. Can't wait to try more

I cannot have vinegar, so I am going to try this with lemon juice instead. Also, I cannot have agave, honey, or maple syrup, so I will add a couple drops of stevia instead. I will let you know how it turns out . . .

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!

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?!?)
