Dairy Free Ranch Dressing Recipe (Paleo, Low Carb, Gluten Free)

I had always heard of people making ranch dressing but all the recipes I saw online had dairy in the form of sour cream, buttermilk or cream. I go off and on dairy to gauge my reactions but most days I know I feel better without it.  Over the holidays I was with my sister’s sister-in-law who blogs over at The Kitchen Rag. She is dairy free and was to going to be eating dinner with us that night so I wanted to make a dairy free dressing option for her. Of course most salad dressings are full of rancid oils that are genetically modified too. Most store bought dressing also have plenty of MSG.  I modeled my recipe from my friend Kim’s blog where she is cooking all of Sally Fallon’s recipe from the epic book Nourishing Traditions.

2 cups coconut milk (I like this one) (full fat, canned)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1 tbsp gluten free mustard
1 tsp paprika

Always use organic ingredients whenever possible.


Add everything to a bowl and stir until well combined.

Serve with your favorite veggies or salad.

This dressing lasts one week in the fridge.

Please Note: Don’t worry about it tasting like coconut because the herbs will mask that flavor.
