Vegan Ranch Dressing
I love ranch dressing. Today I have my very favorite, two ways: this “cool” ranch dressing, and an oil free ranch dressing. Both vegan.
Jason makes fun of my love of ranch.
In all my years of ranching (heh…), I have become quite the connoisseur. Not all ranch is the same. For instance, I love the flavor and consistency of something like a Hidden Valley packet of ranch, mixed with milk.
I do not enjoy the flavor or consistency of the Hidden Valley Ranch in a bottle, ready made. This is nothing against Hidden Valley – as I loved those original packets – I am not a fan of most bottled dressings.
I love to make my own.
First of all, I like a thin dressing. This celery ranch dressing is thin, dippable. I like the traditional ranch flavors, including whatever Cool Ranch means. Cool is most definitely an aspect of this flavor, and I have been trying to recreate it for a while now, in addition to the tangy herby flavors ranch is known for.
While it may seem like a completely strange ingredient, coconut milk helps give it the cool taste I was looking for. If you want to try this recipe and think I’m nuts, please feel free to substitute milk of your choice. Then put it in the freezer before using. Only sort of kidding. But yes, I am kidding.

I first made this celery ranch dressing for my salad of living watercress. I also used it as a dipping sauce for those radish tarts, and it transforms a simple bowl of fresh greens into a tasty salad:
