Creamy Jalapeño "Ranch" Dressing (Vegan)

This dressing is what vegan spicy ranch dressing dreams are made of. I love putting this on a taco salad (or any salad for that matter) and dipping cucumbers or carrots in it. It doesn’t feel super heavy because it’s dairy free and doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients. I used an organic and clean mayonnaise that is made with avocado oil instead of weird oils like soybean or sunflower oil (this is the brand I like to use). I just use a little bit to give it that creamy flavor and texture.

1/2 c. cashews

1/2 c. water

1/2 c. mayonnaise

4 garlic cloves

1 c. cilantro

1 jalapeño

2 small-medium tomatillos

1 lime, juiced

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper


Blend all the ingredients together in a high speed blender until smooth and thoroughly combined. Taste and add a little more salt, pepper, garlic, or jalapeño if you would like.

With love,
