Vegan veggie salad with homemade ranch

One of the tastiest salads you will ever have! The variety of veggies makes this salad so flavorful!



  • 1/2 cup raw cashews.
  • 3/4 cup hot boiling water.
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled.
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard.
  • 1 tsp onion powder.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder.
  • Fresh parsley and chives, chopped.
  • 1 tsp each of dried thyme and dried parsley.


  • 2 cups bib lettuce, chopped.
  • Tomato slices.
  • Kalamata olives.
  • Vegan Parmesan (or nutritional yeast).
  • 1/2 a cucumber, sliced. 1 small carrot, chopped.
  • 1/4 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed, drained.


For the ranch: soak the cashews in the hot water for 20-30 minutes. Once soaked add them to a blender with the soaking water and remaining ingredients (I recommend adding the fresh herbs last). Set aside.

For the salad: toss together all the salad ingredients and serve on a large plate. Drizzle with the ranch and enjoy!
