Cilantro and Lime Ranch Vegetable Dip (Dairy-free, Paleo, Vegan alternatives noted)

This dip is a twist on my Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing.
A little less coconut cream and a few drops of essential oil make a world of difference in flavor and texture. This mix goes together quickly and has fast become our favorite dipping sauce for veggies, topping for taco salads and more.
To keep this recipe vegan, I highly recommend Melissa Joulwan’s Egg-less Homemade Mayo, although we often use her original homemade mayo recipe which she shared in this Healthy Lunchbox post back in 2012.

Using only the purest essential oils not only makes this dip absolutely delicious, it also increases the nutritional benefits of eating naturally healthy and naturally delicious foods!


Whichever way you choose to serve this, we hope this recipe brings you as much delight as it has brought us!
