Ranch dressing is a quintessential topping for salads, used as marinades, or a dip in so many dishes. But when you follow a dairy-free diet, ranch dressing is off the table, literally and figuratively.
I lived for many years with the assumption that I’d never enjoy ranch dressing again on a dairy-free diet, because the idea of something that tastes like a knockoff just didn’t appeal to me. If I couldn’t have the real thing, I didn’t want anything like it at all.
But as I’ve gone on this journey on being dairy-free, I’ve transitioned from eating just the foods that are naturally dairy-free to adding more of these alternatives back into my diet. It’s nice to add a few different ingredients to my diet that add tons of flavor and make me feel like I can still enjoy many ‘normal’ foods.
While I didn’t miss ranch dressing for the few years I didn’t eat it, I can say now, it is nice to add to a salad or use in dinner dishes, like chicken and vegetables, for extra flavor.
I recently came up with my very own dairy-free ranch dressing recipe, which to be honest, was well overdue. I’ve been asked for years for a good recipe or a good brand recommendation, and I didn’t have much to share. But now, I make my own dairy-free ranch dressing, and you can find that recipe here if you’d like to make your own and control the quality of ingredients too.
But if you’re looking for more of a convenient way to enjoy ranch dressing, without any effort, I’ve rounded up 5 great brands that offer dairy-free ranch dressing that are worth trying. As with any Top 5 post I create, I do my best to share the knowledge I have on a product and what I think about it, and arm you with the best information I can to help you make an informed decision for yourself.
With that, here are 5 dairy-free ranch dressings that I’ve tested and would love to invite you to explore, so you can find your own favorite.
Tessemae’s organic creamy ranch dressing is probably hands-down my favorite dressing option I’ve found for a gluten and dairy-free diet, because it tastes like the real thing. Plus it has no added soy or sugar, which I think is a win-win all around.
Daiya offers a gluten and dairy-free ranch dressing that is a pretty good substitute for the real thing. What I love about this ranch dressing option is that it’s allergy-friendly all around with no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, peanuts, shellfish, or fish ingredients included. It’s a great option when you have multiple food allergies!
This organic dairy-free ranch dressing from Primal Kitchen is another great ranch option for a gluten and dairy-free diet, because it’s made with avocado oil instead of buttermilk. This is a good substitute for your regular ranch dressing in salads or as a dip for your next veggie platter.
Sir Kensington’s classic ranch dressing is delicious and made using sunflower and eggs. It tastes similar to the real thing and is another great option for your standard ranch dressing in recipes.
Organicville offers this ranch dressing as a gluten and dairy-free option for anyone following this diet. For full honesty, this one isn’t my favorite of all the dressings I tried, but you may love it even if I don’t! Enjoy this on salad or as a veggie dip.
