Spinach Ranch Dip

  • Ready In:
  • Makes 1½ cups

This dressing has more color than a traditional creamy white ranch recipe. I like to use fresh herbs, but feel free to substitute dried ones, reducing the measure by half. Besides as an oil-free dressing for salads, you can also use this versatile recipe as a dip served with crudités or as a sandwich spread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 (12 ounce) package soft silken tofu
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place the spinach in a kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess water. Place in a blender along with the tofu, vinegar, garlic powder and onion powder. Blend into a creamy paste.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the parsley, dill, chives, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and adjust the seasoning.
  3. Chill before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
