 Recipe Information  
Category: Condiments
Recipe Created By: Melanie Carver

1  cup  unsweetened plain yogurt alternative (cultured soy or coconut milk) -OR-
1   cup  soy-based egg-free mayo
1/4  cup or less  plain milk alternative
1  Tbsp  fresh chopped chives (optional)
1  tsp  Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash

The base of the recipe uses a yogurt OR mayonnaise substitute. Use an unsweetened/plain milk-free yogurt alternative like cultured soy or coconut milk; or use an egg-free soy-based mayo such as Vegenaise®.

Pour the liquid in slowly while whisking all of the ingredients together. If making a dip, you will use less liquid (if any at all) than you would use to make dressing. If you add too much liquid, just add more of the base until you get the right consistency.

Milk free Egg free RanchThis recipe can be used to make a mock ranch dressing or a ranch dip, depending on how much liquid you add.

"Yogurt" tends to be runnier than "mayo", so if you are using a yogurt alternative for this base, you will need less liquid (milk alternative) for this recipe.

If you are using egg-free soy mayo, I recommend using the reduced-calorie version because the mayo is much higher in fat than yogurt.

This recipe is very forgiving, and you can use more Mrs. Dash for flavoring if you want a stronger flavor.

Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container and it will keep for about a week.
