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?

I haven't had a chance to go through all the comments but is there a way to use cashew milk instead of the cashews and water??

Thanks!

Hi Sonya, cashew milk would be too runny! :)

Raw eating is very new to me. I plan to start eating raw next week. I was wondering if you have to use cashews in this recipe or can you substitute any other nut?

Hi Najla! You could try macadamia nuts. Cashews make dressings nice and creamy - other "hard" nuts won't work, but macadamias are a soft nut so might work!

Hi Ibsen,

You can omit the dill (leave it out completely)

OMG, I just made this, chilled it, and dipped some cauliflower in it to taste.....A-MAZING!!!!! It tastes so creamy and decadent, I'm in heaven! I assumed the cashews were to be soaked so I did that and the dressing came out a bit thinner than yours looks in the photo but it's fine because I wanted it to lightly toss it with my salad anyway. Even so, after chilling it, it coated the cauliflower beautifully. This will be my go-to creamy dressing and crudite dip from now on!! Thank you!!! x

This ranch is OK, but it's definitely not SAD. It's way too sweet.I didn't understand the honey. My son liked it though and that's all that matters.

Use a date or two to taste add a little water for processing! it is raw! and it is just sweet enough! Good luck!
