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.
