Dairy-Free (and gf) Ranch Dressing

 I've been wanting to find a dairy-free ranch dressing  
for a while now.
It helps that it's also gluten-free.
It can be made with rice, soy or cow's milk. 
This dressing works great on fish, salads, baked potatoes, 
steamed veggies or even oven-baked steak fries.
  You can find the original recipe here.


Recipes with fewer ingredients are always welcome here.
Why complicate things?

A homemade spice mix makes this 
just the way you like it!

The dressing can be as thick or thin as you want it to be,
just adjust the amount of milk you use.
It does firm up a bit after refrigeration.

Dairy-Free Ranch Dressing

1 C mayo
1 1/2 t lemon juice

(Pour 1 1/2 t lemon juice into measuring cup,
then fill with milk to 1/2 C.)
Let sit 10 minutes.

Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
