Light, refreshing, and delicious, this creamy ranch hemp seed salad dressing is raw, nut-free, oil-free, soy-free, and vegan. It’s quick and easy to make and can be used as a salad dressing, dip, or spread!


  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts (hulled hemp seeds)
  • 1/3 cup water, plus more as needed
  • 1 medium lemon, juice of
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon mineral salt
  • a few strands chives, broken into 1 inch pieces
  • a few sprig leaves fresh dill
  • a few sprig tops fresh cilantro and/or parsley


Using a small blender (or double recipe if using a regular blender), combine ingredients, minus the herbs, and blend until smooth. If it is too thin, add more hemp hearts; if it is too thick, add a tad more water to thin it.

Add in the herbs and blend until incorporated. Taste for flavor, adding anything extra to suit your taste…more lemon?…more herbs?…more garlic, or onion powder? Chill before serving.

Makes about 1/2 cup, serving 2 – 4

Store: Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 – 6 days.


Mix and match herbs to suit your taste.

Salad shown consists of romaine lettuce, carrots, grape tomatoes, cucumbers and topped with cracked pepper. Just simple and delicious!

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT: I have not made this in a regular blender. The NutriBullet (affiliate link) works great for small jobs like this. If using a regular size blender, you may want to double the recipe.
