Paleo Ranch Dressing

My kids love this as a dip with chicken or veggies, but it also makes a smooth, creamy salad dressing as well.

I often put this in packed lunches as a dip to go with chicken strips, and it is always popular.

This simple homemade recipe is so much better than bottled ranch dressing that you can buy as it is made with real food.  Don’t be tempted to use bought mayonnaise for this recipe as it will almost certainly be made with canola oil or a similar vegetable oil which is not good for you due to the high omega 6 levels.  Besides homemade mayo is so easy to make and tastes so much better than the bought stuff that there really isn’t any excuses not to make it!

The egg yolk in the mayo and the black pepper make this an AIP stage 1 reintroduction.  When reintroducing foods on the AIP, I recommend this guide.

Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix together until smooth and creamy.  Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavours to blend.
