Finally! A Vegan, Oil-Free Ranch Dressing!

A creamy salad dressing is a beautiful thing - but not when it's made out of dairy milk, cream and yogurt loaded with fat, cholesterol, chemicals, contaminants, cruelty and animal protein that all do our bodies wrong. I've finally ventured into the world of silken tofu and found it very mild tasting as the base for a rich-tasting, creamy yet totally clean salad dressing with no added oil that is also naturally very low in fat.

Look how my cucumbers sit up in the dressing!

But, are you are wondering about the safety of soy in your diet because there are so many myths floating around online, you don't know what to believe?

Here are some highly reputable resources (with no meat, dairy, big food or big pharma industry ties) explaining the most current medical evidence on the absolute safety and health promoting benefits of soy in your diet:

I was also told this information from my integrative oncologist, who suggested I add some whole food sources of soy into my diet including soybeans, tempeh, soy milk and tofu. So, this dressing is just another delicious part of my overall health plan.

I'm in heaven...Just watch!
