Homemade Cilantro Ranch Dressing

Made with an immersion blender, this clean version of ranch dressing will be your new favorite when you need something to top a salad or pair with fresh veggies.

Jar of cilantro ranch dressing, with limes and cilantro


Prep time: 10 minutes

Yields 20 servings


1 egg

1 cup light olive oil

1 tbsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

¾ tsp. onion powder

¾ tsp. garlic powder

½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk, stirred

1 handful fresh cilantro  


1. Place all ingredients except cilantro in a Mason jar and blend with an immersion blender until ingredients are mostly incorporated. Blend with the immersion blender at the bottom of the jar and work upwards until it starts to thicken.

2. Add fresh herbs and blend for approximately 10 to 15 seconds.

3. Store in the fridge for up to one week. Dressing may thicken in fridge.  

Note: For a thicker dressing, you can use more of the coconut cream that settles at the top of the can and less of the liquid at the bottom. If it still isn’t thick enough to your preference, you can add another egg and blend well.
