This just had to be shared… this dressing is soooo good!! Perfect for salads, meats, as a dip … just try it! Delicious paleo ranch dressing – my way 😉
I am excited, can you tell!? But like, reeeeeally excited!! Over a salad dressing … clearly, it doesn’t take much 😀 Now, there are so many Paleo ranch dressing recipes out there and me being me, I look at recipes, I look at what I have in my cupboard, and then I figure it out and adapt and hope for the best. This time, I wanted a sauce for my homemade burgers, and thought, ‘oooooh, what about that ranch stuff I see all the Whole30-ers going on about!?’ And so the search began.
So being on REBOOT means that I always have some Paleo mayo in the fridge so this saved me all of 1 minute of added prep. We could all use with saving time in the kitchen, no need to be unnecessarily slogging away. If you meal prep – hang on, what am I saying if … sorry – when you meal prep, and you make yourself some mayo, give this a bash whilst you’re at it and the blender is out 😉 It’s so versatile, and tastes just as good as a salad dressing as it does a sauce for meats, or as a veggie dip. Mmmmmmm yuuuuummmmm…!
**One note that I must emphasize – DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT be put off by the inclusion of coconut milk. I reeeeeally don’t like things to taste coconutty and I promise you, this doesn’t. The coconut milk disappears and all it does is make this more viscous, velvety, dreamy, creamy, and smooth.
Another note whilst we’re at it, Paleo mayo is not going to taste the same as store bought mayo that has got a whole heap of added stuff … namely, sugar and more sugar and other stuff I can barely pronounce. If your mayo isn’t quite so palatable for you, maybe play around a bit and add a bit more mustard powder and vinegar for a tangier taste, and make sure that the extra light olive oil tastes good in the first place! We can’t build from poor foundations, ya get me? 😉
So now that all that’s out the way (and for those of you who’ve actually read all of this, thank you ! I know people just skip to the recipe and miss out on the notes and tips so I appreciate your reading all my profoundly enthralling words about the ins and outs of mayo making 😄). Let’s get to the recipe!
