This creamy vegan chipotle ranch dressing will quickly become your favourite dressing and dipping sauce. The best part? It's a condiment that's made without dairy, gluten or refined sugar. 


  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews (soaked in hot water for 30 minutes or overnight in cool water)

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 cup of of unsweetened non-dairy milk or water

  • 1.5 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  • 2 tsp adobo sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 clove garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried dill or a pinch of dill weed



  • Don't have a blender? No worries. You can use a food processor or immersion blender instead. Although, the consistency will be slightly less smooth than when prepared with a blender. With both alternatives, be sure to soak the cashews for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Dressing too thick? Add additional almond milk or water to thin the dressing.
  • Dressing too thin? Add additional soaked cashews or vegan mayonnaise. My favourite is Primal Kitchen avocado mayo.
  • Let the dressing sit before use. All cashew-based dressings will thicken as they sit. This time also allows the flavours to come together.
