Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

  • Author: Heather Carey, MS
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 minutes
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x
  • Category: Salad dressing
  • Method: Blender


Rather than use traditional, less healthy ingredients in this dressing, I incorporate nutrient rich cashews in place of mayonnaise. Be sure to use a high powered blender, such as a Vitamix, to really pulverize the nuts.


Units Scale

1/2 cup cashews
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1. In a small bowl place the cashews and cover with very hot water. Soak for 20 minutes to soften the nuts. Drain the water.

2. In a Vitamix or blender, add the cashews, buttermilk, vinegar, salt and pepper. Blend on high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cashews are well pulverized and the dressing is smooth. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill and meld flavors.


I used this homage Ranch Dressing with my Grilled Baby Bok Choy Salad, yum!
