Creamy and rich plant-based cashew ranch dressing requires few minutes to make and filled with the savory ranch flavors you crave, it’s a healthy addiction.



  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/21 cup plant milk (I used oat milk)
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill


  1. Using a powerful blender or spice grinder, grind dry cashews into a powder.
  2. In a blender, add the cashews, ½ cup of plant milk, 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1 tsp. onion powder. Blend until smooth. Test the consistency and add more milk if desired. Taste again and add more of any ingredients if desired.
  3. Transfer the dressing to a small bowl and use a spoon to mix in the dill and chives.
  4. Add ground black pepper to taste.


  • Nutritional information is based on servings of 2 tablespoons.
  • Store any unused dressing in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • The final yield depends on the amount of plant milk you add and the exact measure of the cashews, but you will get at least 1 to 1 ½ cups of dressing.
