Garlic Ranch Dressing

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. My autoimmune illnesses have been the catalyst for my diet change. I am under the supervision of a Functional doctor who has revamped my diet and put me on supplements. I am feeling better, losing weight and finally feeling like I have energy again. Prior to this, I would wake up feeling exhausted. Exhaustion is a miserable feeling. I am also getting my balance back as well. My medical tests and blood work has improved so much that I have been taken off all of my medications but one as per my western medical doctor.

I have finally been able to go out to eat at restaurants with my family again. Things like making my own salad dressings have made a huge difference. Most store-bought salad dressings have ingredients that I can’t have such as sugar and oils. I have asked if it is ok to bring in my own dressing and they have said I could. If I bring my own dressing then I can have the salad. This dressing is the bomb. You can use it as a salad dressing or a vegetable dip.

I really like the flavor of homemade mayo. My mayonnaise has avocado oil in it and no refined sugar. The garlic and herbs make this dressing.

Nutritional Facts are based on one tablespoon per serving.

 

1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon granulated onion

1/2 teaspoon dill

1/2 teaspoon chopped onion

1/4 teaspoon basil

1 big pinch pink salt

1/2 teaspoon chives

 

Make the homemade mayonnaise. The mayonnaise can be made in advance. It will last for several weeks in the fridge. Combine mayonnaise and sour cream. Stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate 2-3 hours to allow the flavors to meld. Use on salads or as a dip for vegetables. If you would like it a little thinner add a little milk.
