Use it as a dip

Our vegan ranch dressing makes great dip for chips, breadsticks or anything you want to dip. Try it with vegan calamari for a truly tasty delight. It is delicious on its own, or you can also use it as a base to boost flavor in other mayo-based dips.

Dress salads

Our healthy ranch dressing will add the perfect finish to any crispy leaf. Pour it on your healthy spring salad for a spice injection. Or try your new creation with a tasty and nutritious avocado mango salad instead.

Marinate vegetables

Marinating vegetables is the easiest way to infuse them with extra flavor and season them from the outside in. Unlike meat, you can marinate your vegetables before or after cooking. Go all out and learn how to grow your vegetable from scraps to minimize spending and waste.

Boost blandness with natural flavors

Your ranch dressing can be added to blander foods, like rice or potatoes, to give some added stimulation for the taste buds.
