Southwest Ranch Dressing (Vegan)

This dairy-free southwest ranch dressing tastes so good you’ll want to eat it straight off the spoon! It’s great in salads, over rice bowls & buddha bowls, and makes a fantastic veggie dip.

I developed this dressing specifically for my southwest vegan quinoa salad. It’s the yummiest sauce ever that’ll make you think of creamy ranch dressing, but with strong Tex-Mex leanings.

This creamy southwest dressing can be used on burgers and salads, and of course in buddha bowls it’s perfect as well.

Before I was vegan I used to love the southwest ranch dressing at McDonalds and I wanted to create a copycat recipe that would mimic that flavor. Try this vegan ranch dressing on vegan fried chicken, pizza, or as a veggie dip, too!
