Awesome Vegan Ranch Dressing

What you need: 

1/2 cup nondairy milk (I use Edensoy vanilla or regular flavor)
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Nasoya Nayonaise)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dried or fresh parsley, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

Mix all ingredients in food processor.
This recipe tastes totally like the regular Ranch dressings on shelves in supermarkets. Everybody loves it and they all want the recipe hearing that it is vegan and so much healthier for you. I use it on salads, brown rice, baked potatoes, steamed veggies and a little thicker (add a bit more Nayonaise) as a veggie dip for raw vegetables. For the vegetable dip, I omit the red wine vinegar.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This actually tastes like Ranch, it is pretty awesome seriously!!
I followed the recipe, however the dressing is so watery. It has been years since I had ranch so I will gladly take it that way...
but I am pretty new to cooking and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for thickening the recipe without adding tons of extra mayo? Is there a basic vegan thickening agent that would be sutable?
I also must say that after seeing how easy this was to make it seems silly that people pay $3 a bottle for Ranch when you can make it with just a few items most people already have!! ::)
Recipe is great, thanks!!

just wondering before I make this I was wondering: why vanilla soymilk? that seems so odd to me but if it really adds something the way salt does in brownies then I'll try it.

This Dressing is amazing, I make modifications to make it more ranch-like: Skip the milk, add twice the vegenaise, 2 tbs apple cider vinegar, twice the parsley (FRESH), and add  1 packed tbs chopped fresh dill.

I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk and rice vinegar in this, eyeballed everything b/c that is how i roll. I liked it, it was a bit runny, and an odd sweetness.. great on salad, and made it again today for more salad for work. does the trick :)

This recipe is the best!  And takes just a couple minutes to whip up.  I don't use a food processor for this.  I just use a hand whisk.  I also don't measure the spices exactly.  Easy and forgiving recipe.  It tastes like Ranch Dressing, and it's TERRIFIC!

seriously, the best ranch dressing i've ever had:)
i like it super thick, so i added a bit more veganaise, and i also used white vinegar instead of red; i practically made it in under a minute!
it should make a wonderful edition to my bag lunch tomorrow:D

very, very good! my non vegan husband loved it. i only used one tbsp. of vinegar, but next time i think i will use more...or lemon juice...something to give it some bite. I also didn't have any onion powder, do i chopped up some fresh, red onion. I used a blender, and it turned out great! thank you, i will keep making this for sure!

I haven't been able to eat a salad in months because I haven't found a ranch dressing that was remotely tastey. But I tried this recipe out and it's amazing! It actually resembles ranch.  None of the store-bought crap I got comes close. Deffinitely made my day. :D

p.s. I wanted to add that I used brown rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar.  No sulfites.
