Lemony Dill Dressing: An Easy-to-Make, Vegan Alternative to Dairy-Based Ranch
Ranch-Style Flavor Perfect for Potlucks and Parties
I started making this dressing years ago as a vegan alternative to the ranch-style mayo-and-milk dressing called for in "Layered Vegetable Salad" (Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book). It has since become a family favorite. It works beautifully with tossed and layered lettuce-based salads, as well as with broccoli salad. It doubles as a dip too, the perfect compliment to a veggie tray. I always get compliments and recipe requests when I take this to a party.
Parts & Parcels
- 1/4 cup vegan mayo, like Veganaise or Just Mayo
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, fresh-squeezed or bottled
- 1 Tablespoon agave
- 1/4 teaspoon dried dill or 1/2 teaspoon finely minced fresh dill
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, optional adds a ranch-like flavor
Methods & Madness
1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together.
2. Using a spatula, pour/scrape into serving or storage container.
3. Store, covered, in refrigerator for up to one week.
