This is my favorite quick and easy paleo ranch dressing and dip. If you already have some paleo mayo in the fridge, it will only take a minute or two to stir together. Even if you need to whip up a quick batch of mayonnaise, you can be eating this tangy ranch dip in 10 minutes.
This dressing is completely dairy-free. While traditional ranch dressings are made with buttermilk, this recipe uses a little bit of coconut milk and lemon juice to recreate that creamy, tangy flavor. Add garlic and fresh herbs and you’ve got a dressing everyone will love. I like to make it on the thicker side, so it works as a dip too. If you prefer it thinner, just adjust the proportions to your liking.
Oh, the things you can do with paleo ranch dressing. This is an amazing dip for crudités. I love it with carrot sticks, but it really works with any veggies. Serve it as a dip with chicken wings. And of course it’s wonderful on a wedge salad topped with scallions and crumbled bacon.
