#1 Oil Free Ranch Dressing Recipe That You Need Immediately

It took me a while to get here, but here I am back to making salad dressings at home. When I was growing up, all we ever used on salad was homemade dressings. The only ketchup we ever used was homemade in our own kitchen too. Back then, I just wanted to be “normal” and buy it all from the grocery store.

Now I know that an oil free homemade dressing is the better way to go. Here is the #1 Oil Free Ranch Dressing that you can start making immediately in your kitchen.

Making a ranch dressing without added processed oil helps decrease the fat and calories in your dressing. Decreased fat and calories help you to maintain a healthy weight and decrease damage to the inner lining of your blood vessels and decreased fat means decreased risk for diabetes too.

#1 Oil Free Ranch Dressing

1/2 cup cultured cashew cream (or you can use silken tofu)

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (for stronger garlic flavor you can use 2-3 cloves instead)

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon parsley flakes

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 Tablespoon redwine vinegar (or you can use apple cider vinegar)

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Store in an airtight refrigerator for 5-7 days.


Enjoy this oil free ranch dressing on the salad of your choice. It works well in tuna-less salad too! Put it on spinach, romaine, kale, – chopped cabbage.

It’s delicious!
