Ranch Dressing - Dairy Free, Grain Free

Princess dates a nice young man who has dairy allergies.

No, I'm not talking about lactose intolerant. I'm talking about rashes. The more dairy he consumes, the more prominent the rash is. To make matters even worse, Matt loves cheese and even more, RANCH DRESSING.



So when he comes to eat on the weekends, Hubby and I try to be considerate and limit the amount of dairy in the food we prepare for meals. Skip the pizza takeout. Don't serve up the cheesy onion dip. But for some reason, I always put out the carrots and celery sticks with ranch dressing. Poor guy, he has NO willpower! So I told him that I would see what I could do about finding him a dairy free ranch dressing ...



And this past weekend, for the BBQ/Pool party we had, I prepared a recipe to see what everyone thought. Nothing like having guinea pigs for sampling!



I believe it's a keeper ... and it certainly made him feel a little more special ... except that EVERYONE was eating it :-) ... and once they heard it was dairy free, they were all over it (somehow, grain free doesn't make people excited?)

It's easy ... but I also had my mayo made already that morning in anticipation of HUBBY needing some for his shrimp pasta salad ...



1/2 cup mayo (do me a favor, if going for TRUE dairy free, make your own)
2 to 3 tbs coconut milk (canned)
1 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp minced garlic (are you prepping your garlic in mass quantities yet?)
black pepper
squeeze of lemon juice



Mix all well together in bowl, cover and refrigerate for an hour, minimum. 



Serve up!
