A couple weeks back I posted a photo on Instagram of my leftover plate of buffalo wings and dairy-free ranch from the day before. The buffalo wing recipe I still need to post and I am so, so excited to share it with everyone. For the past 4 years or so, my fiancé Chris and I have dedicated nearly every Sunday during football season (and some random Sundays mixed in) to preparing a homemade buffalo wing feast. I was never a huge football fan before meeting Chris, but I’ve definitely come to love staying in my pajamas all day, cooking and enjoying a homemade meal relaxed on the couch. Sometimes, you just need to veg out. Am I right? 😉
Our wings have always prepared with butter and dipped in blue cheese. So when I went dairy-free several months back, I was pretty terrified that I wouldn’t be able to create a comparable dairy-free version. Thankfully, after just a little experimentation, ghee and this dairy-free ranch dressing came to the rescue!
I’ve never really been a ranch fan, but I’ve been using this dressing on everything. Nothing like giving up dairy to make you appreciate creamy sauces and condiments!
Making your own mayo is definitely an option but I rarely have the time. My kitchen is always stocked with multiple jars of Primal Kitchen Foods mayo, which is made with avocado oil.
