How to Make the Best Vegan Ranch

This ranch recipe is a new go-to one for me! It is incredibly quick and easy to make, and it, of course, tastes delicious. It is perfect for dipping veggies, vegan chicken wings, pizza, or anything your heart desires! I also love using it as a salad dressing. I am obsessed with this vegan ranch recipe, and I am confident you will be too once you give it a try!

Use this vegan ranch as a dip OR as a salad dressing!

This ranch makes for a great salad dressing. I love adding a dash of sriracha into it to create a spicy dressing for southwestern-style salads or taco bowls. However, my favorite way to use the ranch is to dip my BBQ cauliflower wings and veggie sticks. If you plan to make this vegan ranch recipe, I highly recommend you check out my baked cauliflower wings recipe as well! The two pair together SO well. If you’re a pizza lover (WHO ISN’T???), my last recommendation is to dip your pizza into the ranch. You will not be disappointed!

This recipe requires just 7 ingredients and 5 minutes of your time!

I whisk together vegan mayonnaise, pickled jalapeno brine, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and fresh, chopped dill leaves to make this vegan ranch. I love adding in pickled jalapeno brine because it gives the ranch its slight tanginess. It does NOT make the ranch spicy, though, so don’t be scared off! If I want the ranch to be a tad thinner, I will add a tiny bit of water. By adding in a touch of water, I can create the perfect consistency for a salad dressing.
