My favorite feature of this recipe is the chia seeds. I’d never thought to use chia seeds to thicken a dressing before. It worked wonderfully.

  1. I use my own chives, and dried oars,y just now, plus powdered onion. I have become a real fan of sunflower seeds and very glad their price is better than nuts.
    A lovely dressing and makes a real change over warm potato salad so it is quite soaked in when cold.

    • So glad you loved it! It’s got so many great uses :)

  2. I can’t eat chia seeds. What is an alternative for recipes?

    • The ranch may not come out as thick as without chia, so perhaps try adding a touch more sunflower seeds in their place.

  3. did I miss how many carbs and sugars are in this dressing?

  4. Non dairy mayo mixed with non dairy milk, salt/pepper/parsley does the trick too.
