Ranch Dressing Recipe With Coconut Milk (Dairy, free, AIP, Paleo, Soy Free, Nut Free Gluten Free)

During my autoimmune paleo journey, finding a ranch replacement was a top priority. After trying different combinations I'm confident i've found the most delicious ranch dressing recipe that's dairy free, gluten free, paleo, vegan, AIP, and allergy friendly. The dressing is made from a base of coconut cream so it has the creaminess of ranch.  I'll make the ranch on the weekends and use it during the week for my salads, veggie dip and toppings. 

You can get totally creative with this and add it to many different recipes. I like to add it as a topping on baked chicken or even put it on cauliflower pizza as the sauce.
