Whole30 Ranch - This easy Whole30 dressing and sauce has only 6 ingredients, is gluten-free, dairy-free, keto, kid-friendly, and budget friendly. A must go-to sauce!

A great sauce can go a long way in making meals come together and this easy Whole30 Ranch is a staple for our Whole30’s. In my local Whole30 groups, I would bring this to the opening potluck and have people insist I needed to start bottling and selling it. This is a mayo-based sauce which means it’s a great source of healthy fats. Perfect for all the dipping and topping your salads!

I have shared two ways to make it – one if you already have mayo on hand, and the dump ranch method for a super easy one-step process.

Whole30 Ranch

Servings 8 oz
Author Autumn @wholefoodfor7


Method One - With Pre-made Mayo

  • 1 c. compliant mayo see notes for link to my 5-minute Mayo
  • 1/4-1/2 c. full-fat coconut milk or other dairy-free milk adjusted for desired thickness
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • pinch each ground salt and black pepper or to taste

Method 2 - Dump Ranch with Immersion Blender

  • 1 cup extra light tasting olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • pinch pepper
  • dairy-free milk of choice to desired thickness


Method 1 - With Pre-made Mayo

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl or blender and whisk or blend until well combined. Store in fridge covered for up to 2 weeks.

Method 2 - Dump Ranch

  1. Add all ingredients to a container that is just slightly bigger than the head of your immersion blender like a large mouth mason jar. Let sit for a few minutes so egg can settle to the bottom.

  2. Put immersion blender into the mixture, positioning right on top of the egg yolk. This placement is important. Wait 10 seconds.

  3. Turn on immersion blender, to high if your blender has speeds, holding it down at the bottom over the egg yolk and DO NOT MOVE for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds of blending on high at the bottom of the mixture, slowly pull up, still mixing, mixing up and down slowly a few times through the whole mixture. Result should be creamy and thick.

  4. Thin with a dairy-free milk to desired thickness. Store in the fridge covered for up to two weeks.

        We made this to go along with the garlic fries and it’s even better that “regular” ranch! Now we pretty much always have a jar in the fridge ready to go with everything.

        • Aw, YAY! I love that it’s a must-have on hand. Thank you!

    Best vegan ranch!! I have tried several recipes before in search of a good vegan ranch and this is the best one I have found by far. I’m not surprised because all of Wholefoodfor7’s recipes are amazing!!

    • Why thank you so much! Happy this is a favorite!

    I make a double batch of this every week using the 5-Min Mayo for my base. My family loves it. I actually just leave out the coconut milk and keep it thicker for a dip or dressing. We live abroad so we don’t have any sauces or dressings available for purchase that were Whole30 compatible and this was a lifesaver for our first whole30! Wholefoodfor7 is my first go to website for Whole30 and now for Food Freedom since my husband, 15 year old daughter and I are working out what our food will look like from now on.

    • I love that this has been giving you a Whole30 ranch option abroad! So happy my recipes have been a helpful resource and good luck as you navigate your Food Freedom!

    I’ve always been a Hidden Valley Ranch girl through and through. Then I did a whole30 and tried the Primal Kitchen ranch that is whole30 compliant and honestly hated it. I started following Autumn on Instagram for more whole30 inspiration and found this compliant ranch recipe. All I can say is WOW. It’s hands down the best ranch, and I don’t have to feel guilty about any bad stuff in it. Even my boyfriend (who hates all things coconut) is obsessed with this dressing. We are never going back to store bought ranch again!

    • Beat out the store-bought?! LOVE IT!! So happy it’s been a keeper for you!
