If you’ve grown to believe that ranch dressing is NOT a healthy addition to your salads, there is plenty of evidence to support why this might be. If you grab a bottle from the supermarket shelf you’ll likely notice that it is loaded with preservatives, additives, processed oils, and even sugar. This easy, straight forward recipe, however, brings a fresh new perspective to this all-American salad bar classic, and definitely outdoes anything processed in terms of both flavor AND nutrition. Enjoy!



  • ½ cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • ½ cup chopped Persian cucumber, peeled
  • 2" segment of the white part of a spring onion, chopped
  • ½ clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil or avocado oil

  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 3+ Tbsp water
  • 2-3 generous sprigs of fresh dill
  • 2-3 generous sprigs of fresh basil
  • 10+ stems fresh chives
  • 2-3 generous sprigs of fresh Italian parsley
  • ¼ -½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Using a blender, blend the cashews, cucumber, spring onion, garlic, oil, vinegar, salt, and water until smooth and creamy.
