Easy and delicious! Submitted by S. Ann Andrews.
This ranch dressing uses silken tofu instead of mayo for a low-fat version that will add creaminess to any salad.
1 12.3 ounce package firm lite silken tofu
1/3 cup water…
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. garlic powder…
1 red bell pepper
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar…
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup distilled water…

2 tsp cornstarch…
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. frozen apple juice concentrate…
