Raw Ranch Dressing

I’ve been trying to find a ranch dressing that didn’t have any bad ingredients for a very long time.  I had given up until I found this recipe…it is great!!!  It doesn’t taste “exactly” the same as a Hidden Valley-type dressing but it is pretty close! 

Raw Ranch Dressing/Dip
Servings: 24 (or 3 cups)

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups nuts (cashews OR macs OR combo of both)  I use all cashews – soak them for a creamier dressing (1-2 hrs is fine, then drain)
3/4 – 1 cup filtered water for blending
3 tablespoons lemon juice (translates into approx 1/2 lemon)
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons agave (or 3 soaked dates)
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon dill
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon basil

And to add after it’s done:
1/4 cup finely minced parsley
another 1/2 t dill, minced

Directions
Blend all ingredients till creamy and smooth except the last 2, then once blended, stir in the last 2 ingredients.

Thickens in fridge.

Thin to desired consistency if using as a dressing- or toss into wet lettuce leaves as is.
