My Nana and Popop always stocked their fridge with a Tupperware container full of buttermilk ranch dip. It was that ranch you’d make with the packet of seasoning; you know the one I’m talking about! 

The flavor was always 10x better than the stuff that came outta the bottle, and I’m pretty sure it was the only thing that got me to eat my veggies in those days.

When I was a kid, I used to spend a day or two every week at my grandparents’ house after school, and I remember how I’d run in the door, throw open the fridge, and grab the ranch and raw cauliflower to munch on while I told them about my day. I looked forward to that moment all day long!

Since I went vegan, I’ve had trouble finding a store-bought ranch that compares to these delicious memories. That is, until T whipped up this awesome vegan buttermilk ranch dip as a last-minute dinner party appetizer one night. 

I took one taste, and all those memories of my grandparents’ house and the excitement I used to feel for it came flooding back…along with a tear…okay, more like 100. 

We’ve made this recipe about a million times since then and even brought it to Thanksgiving this past year. Everyone marveled how much it tasted like the dip in Nana and Popop’s fridge, especially Nana. 

That’s when I knew we truly nailed it.

How to Make Vegan Buttermilk Ranch Dip

This is LE-GIT the easiest recipe in the history of recipes. 

Grab a large mixing bowl, whisk, and your measuring cups! You’ll start by whisking some apple cider vinegar with plain non-dairy milk to make your buttermilk. 

You can use any kind of non-dairy milk you like (soy / almond / cashew / oat / etc.), but the important part here is to use a milk that is both PLAIN (sometimes this is also labeled as “ORIGINAL”) + UNSWEETENED

Basically, you want the blandest milk possible, so it doesn’t off-set the flavor of this vegan ranch. Buying the right kind of milk is like 89% of nailing this recipe, so trust me on this. You do NOT want a weirdly sweet or vanilla-flavored ranch. (I speak from experience here.)

Next, you’ll set the buttermilk aside to curdle for about 3-5 minutes while you gather the remainder of your ingredients. Add the vegan mayo and a few pantry staple seasonings and whisk until everything is nice and smooth and beauuuutiful. 

Then, GET DIPPIN’!

How to Use This Vegan Ranch Dip

Use this vegan buttermilk ranch dip for a last-minute party appetizer served with lots of fresh veggies, vegan buffalo wings or nuggets (Our fam loves the ones by Morning Star.), and allllll the crackers.

You can also try it as a sandwich spread, meal-prep snack, or for dipping pizza crusts! (I hear that’s a thing?)

You can even use this vegan ranch as a salad dressing if you add just a little more vegan buttermilk to thin out the texture. I have never eaten salad so consistently in. my. life. But with this stuff, I can’t stop!
