I love ranch dressing and this whole-food bacon ranch dressing recipe is so good and there's even a dairy-free option!
Most American's love ranch dressing. It's become a staple condiment over the last several years. Topping pizza, french fries, burgers, and every other staple in the standard American diet.
But let's be honest, ranch dressing is not good for you. I mean, have you ever read the ingredients on the back of a bottle of ranch dressing from the store? It's full of common food allergens like dairy, corn, and soy, chemicals like MSG, and damaging industrial oils.
So if you are caring for your health and you still love ranch, you're gonna have to make it yourself! This bacon ranch dressing recipe is really easy to whip together in no time and it stores well in the fridge.
I use it on salads and for dipping all kinds of things like veggies, chicken wings, fried zucchini, fried mushrooms, chicken nuggets, celery root french fries, etc.
If you can tolerate dairy, use heavy cream for this recipe. If you are dairy-free, you can easily substitute your preferred non-dairy milk. This recipe is best when thick, so a thicker option like cashew or coconut milk will do best. My favorite coconut milk is Aroy-D and I get it on Amazon.
Hopefully, this recipe will help you live life to the fullest and allow ranch dressing back into your life!
