Cat's Keto Green Dressing
All kids LOVE to dip their food. Ketchup, mustard, RANCH!! Most grown-ups like a good dunk too!
A lot of ranch dressings have undesirable ingredients when it comes to keto. Soybean oil for instance. We stay away from this oil because it has a bunch of bad fats in it.
You can read more about soybean oil here.
I set out to make homemade ranch and be a hero to my almost 6 foot tall 15-year-old “little” boy.
I don’t know what I made but I did not make ranch dressing. What I did make was this yummy concoction. He loved this too but said it would be great for cucumbers only. I beg to differ!
It was amazing! I ate way too much salad just to keep eating this dressing!
Give it a try. Tell me what you think.
Make your own variation. Cilantro would be NICE in here!!
Cat’s Keto Green Dressing
3/4 cups light-tasting olive oil avocado oil, or fractionated “tasteless” coconut oil
1 egg yolk - If you’re worried about eating a raw egg yolk you can freeze it. It kills off bacteria. Don’t quote me on this. I read it online and I’m trusting it!
1 tsp. Spicy brown mustard
1 cloves garlic peeled
Fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, plus more to taste
1 TBS dried parsley
1 Tbsp. dried dill
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 TBS HWC
Dump all ingredients but herbs and heavy whipping cream into a wide-mouthed jar. Something that isn’t much wider than the immersion blender head. Push immersion blender into the jar all the way to the bottom then start to blend, the mixture will become thick. Continue to blend until all of the oil is incorporated. to incorporate the remaining oil. Add the heavy whipping cream and blend for a few more seconds.
Once the mixture is entirely emulsified, remove blender and add herbs. Press immersion blender head down over herbs and give it a small pulse to lightly incorporate the herb.
Store in an airtight container (preferably glass) in the refrigerator.
