This creamy ranch dressing is so easy to make – just throw everything in your blender or NutriBullet. Add water as needed to get the perfect consistency for you.

However, if you’re feeling more adventurous and want to really amp up the spiciness, you might want to try my Paleo Avocado-Cilantro-Lime Sauce instead. That’s the dressing I normally pair with my beefy paleo taco salads, but if you like your greens with a little more kick, that may be the one for you.

That’s it peeps…just a nutritious paleo salad idea for you with a new recipe for a creamy, dairy-free paleo ranch dressing. 

Oh and feel free to toss in some shredded or leftover chicken if you want to give this salad a little more protein.

Gotta love a meal you can throw together in minutes, right?

      Hmm, not sure Christy. I have been working on one, but still in the process. I’v tried a few I found online that were ok. And I know Tessamae’s has one out now that might be worth a try. Stay tuned! ;)

    I have tried many of your recipes and wow, BRAVO! Thanks so much! I’m excited to try this one but I was wondering, can the dressing stay in the fridge for a few days or use it right away?
