Creamy Peppercorn Ranch Dressing

I love gourmet raw food, but when it really comes down to it, there's not much I prefer more than a big, green salad.  Of course a salad is only as good as its dressing!  This is my all time favorite creation.  The hemp seeds and olive oil make this blend up so creamy, you'll be shocked that it's dairy-free!  It's amazing on romaine, kale, cabbage, you name it!  It's also a fabulous dip with crudités and flax crackers. In fact, I love this so much, I've entered it into the Hot Raw Chef contest.  Check out my entry #8 and watch me make this in my kitchen.  Feel free to offer up a vote for me now through July 21st!  All voters will receive a free e-book containing the recipes from each contestant.



Creamy Peppercorn Ranch Dressing

Yield: 2-1/4 cups


  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup hemp seed
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 cup cold-pressed olive oil


Place the water, lemon juice, hemp seed, garlic, peppercorns and salt in a high-powered blender.  Blend from low to high speed until smooth.  With the blender running on low, pour in the olive oil to emulsify.  Gradually turn up the power until just combined.  The result should be very thick, creamy & delicious!
