Vegan Spicy Ranch Dressing

Ready to add a little heat to your favorite dressing? Let's do this!

This spicy ranch dressing is simple to make, requiring 1 blender, simple ingredients, and it only takes about 30 minutes to prepare (which mostly accounts for soaking the nuts).

It starts with soaked, drained nuts blended with dairy-free milk, garlic, salt, pepper, vinegar, maple syrup, and fresh spices. The result is a creamy, tangy, herby, spicy dressing that’s perfect for salads, buffalo wings, and so SO much more.

This Spicy Vegan Ranch recipe is:

  • Easy

  • Healthy

  • Dairy-Free

You can use this tasty homemade ranch recipe as a dip for veggies, pizza, or on a salad.

I'm not gonna lie to you... it tastes the best with these buffalo cauliflower wings!

Some Final Thoughts & Tips:

  • Herb Substitutions: If you don't have dried herbs, you can substitute fresh herbs, you will want to use about 1/4 cup each. If you don't have parsley, basil works great!

  • How to Store: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week!
