Time to share my recipe for AIP / Paleo Ranch Dressing!
This recipe comes together very quickly and easily - just a couple minutes of gathering ingredients, and a quick whirl in blender - and results in a fantastic ranch sauce that is great for all kinds of dietary restrictions.
It's AIP compliant, and Paleo. It's gluten AND dairy free, as well as being nightshade free, and preservative free!
It's not taste-free, though. I love the fresh taste of the herbs, which works so well with the coconut cream, and is balanced with a little tang from the apple cider vinegar. Use is as a salad dressing, or as a dip!

- 1 can Coconut Cream chilled
- 3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Onion Powder
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- ¼ cup Fresh Parsley

- Salt to taste
- Open chilled can of coconut cream. Scoop solid cream into a blender or food processor, reserving remaining liquid.
- Add vinegar, onion and garlic powders, parsley, and dill. Blitz until well combined and smooth.

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.
