Paleo Ranch Dressing

This is one of my favorite dressings to make and have in the fridge for anytime use. I use it on salads, for vegetable dip, on wings, etc. Whatever you can think to use a ranch dressing on! (which, let's face it, can be pretty much anything 😉)


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk ( I use the canned full-fat coconut milk and whisk together the coconut cream/water and then use a half cup of that mixture)
  • 1/2 cup of homemade or avocado mayo - I use Sir Kensington’s brand but I’ve been seeing other brands use avocado oil as well!
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed or finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of dried or fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1-2 pinches of sea salt or to taste preference

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or jar that you’ll use to store the dressing.
  • Stir until well combined and that’s it!
  • Store in the fridge - it will also thicken once it has sat in the fridge for a couple hours.

Notes

I like my ranch really garlicky, the fresh cloves of garlic definitely give it an extra kick. If you’re not as big of a fan of garlic you can go a little easier or even just use the garlic powder instead, for a milder flavor.

If you’ve never bought canned, full-fat coconut milk you may be confused on what I’m talking about. When you open the can, you’ll see that the coconut cream has separated from the water and will be on top. Scoop the cream out into a medium sized bowl and then pour the water in after that. I use a whisk to thoroughly incorporate the water with the cream. That’s it! You can save the left over coconut cream mixture in a small jar, stored in the fridge and use as a “whip cream” for desserts if you’d like or save it to make more Ranch later on!

 

Ginger Scallion Sauce

Equipment Needed

  • Food processor
  • Peeler
  • Knife

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of scallions, roughly chopped
  • 3-4 inches of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 - 2/3 cup of olive oil ( amount will depend on how big your bunch of scallions is) I prefer Kasandrino's EVOO
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of maple syrup

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients, besides olive oil, into your food processor.
  • Begin pulsing your ingredients together. You may need to scrape the sides of your food processor a couple times so that everything gets will blended.
  • Turn your food processor on low and slowly add the olive oil to the mixture in a slow stream, start with 1/4 cup and add more as needed. You'll want to add enough olive oil so that everything can become well blended, there should be little to no "chunks" left of scallions or ginger.
  • The finished sauce shouldn't be runny but should be slightly looser than a paste or spread consistency.
  • Store in the fridge a glass jar Tupperware or freeze in a silicone tray for portioned serving sizes.

Uses

I like to use this sauce of almost everything! Try it on chicken wings, or Easy Peasy Poultry, broiled salmon, or on roasted root veggies
