Ranch-ish Dressing

June 02, 2016

Okay, so I haven’t had real Ranch dressing in about 20 years. BUT. I will say that this is the closest thing to my memory of it, which is very, very good. And besides, what is “real Ranch dressing” anyway?

Those of us who grew up in the 80’s remember the advent of “Cool Ranch Doritos,” which while weirdly tasty/addictive will make your hair fall out and over time, kill you (only a slight exaggeration). Chives, dill, and a little bit of creamy tang go a long way to reproduce the satisfying, traditional Ranch flavor.

This nutrient-packed dressing can be used on salads or to make your steamed vegetables, grains, or grilled fish instantly more exciting. I use it with avocado and cilantro over “paleo” fish tacos in which the corn tortilla is replaced with a fresh green cabbage leaf.

1/3 cup filtered water
½ cup hemp seeds
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
2 tsp dried dill (nearly double this if using fresh)
1 tbsp fresh chives, roughly chopped
¼-1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ scant tsp dried onion (optional)
¼-1/2 tsp salt

Place all ingredients except dill and chives in a blender or Vitamix, and blend until smooth and creamy.
Add dill and chives and process until they are chopped and uniformly distributed. Pour over everything and enjoy.

I made Lily's Recipe for the turmeric paste and we are both having a spoonful every Morning.
Thank You

Asolutely delicious

I swore by the Radical Immune Powder until I tried this one. It is an amazing addition to almost every hot beverage and is a great addition to smoothies, or turning my hot chai/coffee into an iced treat. Fantastic blend.
