Creamy Ranch Dip
Talk about a quick and easy appetizer! This one can be served with your favorite fresh-cut veggies or even baby carrots right out of the bag. Serve with a small glass of white wine, and start your meal off with a bang!
Makes 1 cup dip
1 cup Vegenaise
(I use the Grapeseed
2 teaspoons onion granules*
1 teaspoon garlic granules*
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
In a medium size bowl, whisk together all ingredients until combined. Serve with your favorite veggies (cucumber slices, baby carrots, celery sticks, broccoli florets, etc.). Enjoy!
*Originally, I used onion powder and garlic powder for seasonings. One day, I was craving this dip but I only had onion granules and garlic granules, so I used those instead. I LOVED it! Now the dip has more of a punch and a bold ranch flavor. Looking for a more subdued ranch flavor? Simply substitute onion powder (2 tsp) and garlic powder (1 tsp) for the onion granules and garlic granules.
Lauren Marie’s Tips:
*Vegenaise is a gluten free and egg free mayonnaise substitute. Some mayonnaise brands are gluten free, but not all. Personally, I prefer the clean taste of Vegenaise. Plus, I use the one made with grapeseed oil which is really good for your heart. You can find Vegenaise at your local health food store.
*When Patrick, my husband, learned I was posting this recipe he told me to make sure to mention that this dip tastes great with potato chips too!
