Oh mylanta you guys. I can’t believe I completed 45 days of Whole 30 in my life without making dump ranch. Big mistake. Huge.
I finally made dump ranch today, and doing this recipe with the exact ingredients written, I swear to the heavens that I absolutely can’t tell the difference between this and homemade hidden valley ranch.
This takes 5 minutes to make and absolutely no expensive or crazy ingredients.
If you’re on the Whole 30, or about to be, or just trying to make healthier, real-food choices without a bunch of processed crap and chemicals in it, make this. This will be my go-to salad dressing recipe for life. For life.
Recipe adapted from Whole Sisters
1 egg, room temperature (you can accomplish this very quickly by setting your egg in a bowl of warm water for a couple of minutes before you crack it)
1 cup avocado oil (original recipe calls for light olive oil)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
two tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s coconut cream in the brown can (original recipe just calls for full fat coconut milk)
1 handful of cilantro
Place all ingredients into your blender, and blend on medium low speed for one minute. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate. Enjoy!

I love that this is made with coconut milk or cream–a nice healthy version of ranch!
Much healthier and just as delicious! Enjoy!
How long does this stay fresh?
The expiration of the eggs?
Hi Jessica, it lasts about a week. The longer it sits in the fridge though the thicker it gets though
Thanks for the reply, @Shannon. It’s very thin right now but I hope it thickens up before dinner.
I just found your post…I found the recipe for the ranch on day 2. I made the original version for my first whole 30 and then I discovered the “Dump Version.”
this is hands down my go to dressing..when I serve it to friends they love it and cant believe that it has no dairy in it…BEST DRESSING EVER!!
I am nervous about eating the raw egg. Is there an alternative ingredient?
Amy, you could try a couple tablespoons of w30 compliant mayo in place of the egg. I haven’t tried this, but if I were going to try to sub, that’s what I’d do. If you do try it, please come back and tell me how it turns out. Good luck!
I can’t wait to try this!!
Did you use a regular blender or an immersion blender?
I use a small food chopper that can be purchased at HellMart
I used an immersion blender. 🙂
We followed your directions exactly and ours looked nothing like yours. Ours had a very oily appearance and quickly separated upon refrigeration. It also had way too strong of a coconut aftertaste for us. Needless to say, it was gross!
I’m new to using coconut milk/cream, so I’m wondering if maybe we’re just using it wrong and that is our problem here? We completely mixed the fat layer on top with the milk on the bottom. Is that the correct thing to do… or our we supposed to use one or the other?
Hey Ashley. I stopped using Coconut to thin and started just thinning with water. So much better!
I hate cilantro…….what can I use in place of this????
I used a combination of 1 scallion(green onion) a handful of fresh parsley and a couple sprigs of fresh thyme. I love it!
I’m really confused on why you need anything to thin it its all liquid. Mine is just a watery mess 😦
It tastes REALLY good though. Any way of thickening it?
I am new to your website and I can’t get off it.I was looking for blog help and when I saw your gorgeous photos I did suffer blog envy. I can cook, but my photos are just OK.
I am making that paleo fudge asap and those blackberry cupcakes look so so delicious. My daughter is getting married in Maine in Sept. and we are renting a house. I think I need to bring those cupcakes.lol Love your blog. I plan to visit often.
Thank you so much! This is such a sweet comment. I take my photos with an IPhone, and when I look back at my older posts, the photos were awful! You really just need to make sure you take them in natural daylight (I almost always take mine outside in the shade) and make sure you don’t make the photo too busy with lots of props. You should start a blog! It’s such fun! Thanks for visiting!
Is this also Keto friendly?
