The Best Whole30 Ranch

August 28, 2017 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Ranch dressing is one of those magical sauces that makes everything taste better. This is certainly the case with my Whole30 Ranch Dressing. The quality and taste of this dressing is off the charts amazing. It is so much better than the little plastic bottle you get at the store that has ingredients in them you can’t even pronounce.

Not only is it super creamy, but it also packs a punch of flavor. In my opinion, food tastes better when you know ALL the ingredients being used. This dressing has simple and healthy ingredients.

Whole30 Ranch Dressing

Not only is it super tasty, but it’s quick to make. Simply use my homemade 60 second mayo recipe and combine coconut milk, vinegar, dried herbs, and lemon juice and combine together. Usually, I use an immersion blender, but if you don’t have one, no worries. Simply use a food processor to combine the ingredients.

How much ranch is too much?

While completing your Whole30, be careful not to go overboard with your dressings and sauces. Although, my ranch dressing is healthy, you can still have too much. If you aren’t careful, you can find yourself eating this dressing with a spoon.

Feel free to drizzle on salads, soups, eggs, sweet potato fries and veggies. The possibilities are endless. However, be mindful when using. It is recommended to use 2 tbsp per serving.

Whole30 Ranch Dressing

Even if you are not a Whole30 or Paleo human, give this dressing a try. This is a dairy- free, sugar-free and gluten free version that keeps you on track without sacrificing taste.

It takes about 5 minutes to whip up and you will want to make this a weekly staple in your fridge. As far as storage, my ranch will keep for up to a week before you need to throw out. Make sure to store in a jar with an air-tight lid. I remcommend using Weck Jars. They are the best.

    Just tried to make your mayo recipe for the second time….. can’t figure out why mine doesn’t get thick. It’s the right color and tastes ok, but it super thin in consistency. What am I missing?!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      You have to make sure you are using LIGHT olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil will not work. You also need to hold your immersion blender on top of the egg and count to 10 Mississippi and it will begin to thicken.

    2. Nichole says:

      My recommendations would be to make sure your egg is at room temperature first. Pour your oil into the mixture very slowly- very slowly.

  2. Felicia says:

    This is seriously the best ranch dressing! After trying different store bought Whole 30 compliant ranches, I basically gave up on finding anything I liked. This is a game changer! The flavors are so wonderful and it is thick enough to be a dip if you want. It is also very easy. I won’t be buying ranch at the grocery store again! Thank you so much for creating delicious, real foods recipes!

  3. Kristy says:

    Only ranch recipe that I use now. Much better than anything from a bottle, W30 or not!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is so great to hear! Thank you.

  4. Taylor says:

    This is one of those recipes that you take to family functions to impress all of your relatives!! My dad has had a heart attack and a quadruple bypass surgery, but won’t even consider giving Whole 30 a try. I love bringing Whole 30 food over and impressing him with how good it is. I took this ranch to him yesterday and he was amazed by how good it is! He asked for me to send the recipe to my step mom, because it’s so much better than the ranch she makes using hidden valley’s seasoning packs.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This makes me so incredibly happy! Thank you.

  5. Lauren says:

    Think of your favorite restaurant ranch then make it healthy and whole 30! This is the most amazing, game changing whole 30 must have. I literally put it on EVERYTHING. I like mine way more peppery- and you can totally make and customize this to your liking!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is such a compliment! You made my day…Thank you

  6. Hannah says:

    I don’t like ranch dressing. Never have. But this ranch dressing is beyond anything I have ever tried. I think I could sit here and eat every last delicious bite of it. So good.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      WOW! This is so great to hear…such a compliment. Thank you

  7. Amy says:

    This ranch dressing is so good and easy to make. Game changer!!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Its a must as a frig staple. It really goes nicely on so many things. Glad you like!!!

  8. Connie says:

    This is by far my favorite whole 30 ranch! It’s the thickest and thickest ranch I’ve ever made. Anyone would enjoy this ranch.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So glad you like it. So excited its made your favorite list!!!!!

  9. Natasha says:

    I make this nearly every week. It is a staple in our house. My husband says he will never eat store bought ranch again! I love this recipe.

    Make this recipe you will not regret it.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      YAY…….how fun is this?????? Thank you for letting me know Natasha, makes my day

  10. Lee says:

    I love this ranch and make it all the time. I a big fan of the whole food concept and my skin looks great with eating whole Foods. My family weren’t fans of this dressing because they could taste the coconut milk. I tried making it with no coconut milk and more apple cider vinegar. My husband now dips everything in it!! Bonus is it keeps longer in the fridge. I keep my mayo about 3 weeks and find this will keep that long too, it it lasts. I usually use dried herbs because they are quicker and easier to keep on hand. This dressing is great on air fryer chicken wings as well as a dip for veggies. Thanks so much!

  11. Liz says:

    Oh yum! I make homemade ranch all the time and this is a big kick up from my usual recipe. This is my new fav! Seriously, everything of yours I make, I love. You are my new Pinterest for recipes.

  12. Stephanie says:

    So good! And simple to make! Very tasty! Sad I waited so long to make it. Will definitely be a new condiment staple on our house!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy to hear! Thank you

  13. Lorinda says:

    The recipe calls for dill weed, is this dried or fresh dill? Can’t wait to try it!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      It can be either. I use dried

  14. Ashlan says:

    🙌so good!!! The best Whole30 ranch. I’ve tried a couple different ones and this is my favorite. I switched out the coconut milk and used NutPods original instead for a less coconut flavor and it worked great 😋

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you so much. So happy you loved it

  15. Sandy says:

    This is so good. I’ve been wanting a good Whole30 ranch and this is it!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy you love it Sandy~!

  16. Leigh says:

    Delicious. I was craving a good ranch for dipping vegetables on my whole30, and this is perfect! Thank you!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This makes me so happy. Thank you

  17. Jean says:

  18. Anna says:

    Soooo good!! Having appetizers for dinner tonight and dipping everything in this ranch. Yum!

  19. Nikki says:

    Best. Ranch. Ever. Thank you 💗. I live all of the spices and seasonings!

    P.S. I use original nutpods instead of coconut milk so there is no coconut flavor.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Yes, girl! I love using nutpods instead of coconut milk. It’s so creamy and yummy!

  20. Kelly says:

    I had tried Tessemae’s Whole30 ranch in the past and was disappointed….but this one is incredible!! Thank you!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Wow! This is such a compliment….thank you

  21. Aimee Gagnon says:

    This is seriously a game changer! I have been making dairy free things for 15+ years since my son has a major dairy allergy. This dressing is way better than store bought! Thank you for coming up with this recipe! I’ve turned Hidden Valley Ranch lovers into Healthy little Peach Ranch lover’s instead! And, my son only knows what this recipe tastes like and he loves it! thanks!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This just made my entire night. Thank you so so much

  22. Jen says:

    Do you know the macro counts for this recipe? Looking forward to trying it out!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I currently don’t have macros for this recipe. All of my recipes will have nutritional info by the end of the year.

  23. Tara Miller says:

    OMG! How did I ever buy pre-made ranch dressing? This recipe exactly what I want in a ranch dressing and it’s so easy to make. Needless to say I go through a lot more Mayo now, lol. I have literally turned my friends and family onto this recipe and now everyone I know makes their own too. I even adapted it to make it into a blue cheese dressing by omitting the chives and dill and added in blue cheese. So so good!!!

  24. Dawnie says:

    This is the most AMAZING ranch dressing!!! Trying to live mostly Whole30 and hadn’t found a ranch I liked yet until this!!! Less expensive than the bottled ones as well!! THANK YOU

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thanks, Dawnie. This makes me so happy to hear.

  25. Kara says:

    I am obsessed with the unhealthy ranch at restaurants, I am so so happy I tried this! It is so much better than the unhealthy stuff and so so so tasty and delish! Thank you!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This makes me so happy. Thank you so much

  26. Cassandra says:

    I love love love this ranch! I’m doing an elimination diet but with eggs so this recipe was perfect. It’s so hard to find good tasting ranch without gums, soy and other additives so this one is a real winner!! Mine came out super thick more like a dip but I was totally ok with that! I think I used more mayo than the recipe called for (I used the Mayo linked in the recipe so I just used ~half of what that made). I added original oat milk (which to me is basically flavorless) and thinned it a bit versus using coconut milk.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:


  27. Lauren Frazier says:

    I made this ranch tonight for the first time and girl, it’s amazing!! Seriously the best ranch I’ve ever had! I’m making this every Sunday with meal prep and never going back to a packet or store-bought again.

  28. Myra says:

    Reading the reviews and people mentioned eggs in the recipe? I’m not seeing eggs listed in the ingredients. When do I add the egg and how many eggs are needed?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Hi Myra,
      I can certainly see how that is so confusing. The ingredients note to use 1 cup of my compliant Mayo. The recipe for the compliant mayo is where the egg is added. Thank you for the question. Hope this helps.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
