What’s creamy and flavorful and makes everything taste better? Ranch dressing of course! Unfortunately, that stuff that comes in the bottle at the grocery store has far too many strange ingredients for me. And salad dressings are so easy to make at home that it really is worth giving it a try.
Since discovering how simple it is to make my own Paleo mayonnaise, I happily turn that mayo into creamy dressings any night of the week. This ranch dressing has a nice hit of dill because I like it, but you should feel free to adjust the herbs to your own taste buds. I usually make enough dressing for one or two days worth of salad. It’s quick to make and then I don’t get tired of the same dressing either. If you’re looking for something to dip your veggies into, look no further! Unless, of course, you’re in the mood for Paleo Hummus…
1/3 c. Paleo mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. dried chives
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1) Put mayonnaise in a small bowl and add the lemon juice, vinegar, garlic powder, and onion powder.
2) Measure out the thyme, dill, and chives and add them while rubbing them together in your hands to break them up a little and release their aroma.
3) Stir to combine, add salt and pepper, and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning to your taste. Eat with crunchy salads, veggie slices, or even drizzled on eggs.
