Mighty salad…with vegan ranch

So when I want a salad, I want a SALAD.  I need lots of spinach, bell peppers, onion, tomato, pepperocini, some kind of nut, crispy chipolte lime Gardein topped with our home made vegan ranch dressing.  I admit that E2 diets do not smile on processed meats, or vegenaise, but both are sometimes okay.  I ADORE the Gardein products, as they are SO flavorful and absolutely easy to cook and season, etc. 

The vegan ranch recipe we found on, you guessed it, Pinterest.  I cannot for the life of me remember where I originally found it.  But we altered it, to our taste and it’s SO easy to make.  SO…put in a half a cup of vegenaise, and enough almond milk (I prefer 365 brand Almond Milk as it is unsweetened and doesn’t alter the taste…their soy milk works well too but I am through and through an Almond Milk girl.)  to make it a dressing like texture (not too runny, but not thick and goopy…) you can do this to your taste.  Then I add at least 2-3 tablespoons of dill, 4 garlic cloves and stir it up and taste until you’re happy with the flavor.  I also add a few dashes of garlic salt to add to the flavor.  You can do as much or as little of these ingredients, but so far, people who are non-vegan LOVE my ranch dressing!  And oh yeah, it’s SO good.
