Raw Vegan Ranch Dressing

Oh my, this is good stuff.  It’s kind of sour creamish.  Yes, it’s raw vegan sour cream!  I’ve used it in it’s thin state as a salad dressing, today at lunch I used it on baked potatoes.  Then again at dinner I used it on my Vegan Taco Salad.  It really is rich and creamy and not that powdery taste that some of the raw vegan dips/sauces can have.

Even my kids liked it!


Even Isaac liked it!  (actually he LOVED it!)



I probably won’t win any photography awards.  That’s okay because it was very rewarding watching my family munch on this great dip.

  • 1/2 cup each raw (preferably soaked) cashew nuts & raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 21/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 sundried tomatoe
  • 1 whole tomato, cut up
  • some paprika, chili powder and some onion powder

Blend all this in the vitamix, adding water to thin as desired.  For a salad dressing use more water, for a vegan sour cream or vegan ranch dip, use less!
