Just because you have to avoid dairy, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this delicious ranch-style dressing. You won’t even miss the dairy with this flavorful, creamy salad dressing! Here’s what you will need:

1.5 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon dried parsley or chervil
1 teapsoon dried chives
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. white pepper
salt to taste

*(To make the cashew cream, add 2/3 cups raw cashews pureed in a blender with 1/2 cup boiling water until the consistency of cream, may add more water if needed).


1. Whisk mayonnaise, cashew, lemon juice and Dijon mustard in a large bowl.

2. Stir in seasonings.

3. Cover and chill at least 1 hour to blend flavors.

4. Dressing can be stored in refrigerator for 10 days.

This recipe makes 2 cups.


I also wanted to share a few recipes from some other Gluten Free ladies.

And lastly, don’t forget about the Fundraiser at Pinstripes tomorrow night, July 21st in Northbrook. A great fundraiser for The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, it’s going to be a great time!

I hope you are surviving the heat wave! In the Chicago-land area it’s the hottest its been in a LONG time, high 90’s and very humid. What do you like to cook when it’s so hot out?

    This ranch dressing looks tasty but I have a nut allergy- can anything be substituted for the cashew cream?
