Homemade Ranch Dressing - FODMAP Friendly

I have issues digesting lactose and whey and recently realize garlic is also a problem which was a sad realization as I love garlic. Which is an issue when it comes to salad dressings. Everything contains garlic (and/or onion - gross).

But the fructan compounds in garlic that are an issue are only soluble in water. Not oil so I can have garlic infused oil. But store bought garlic infused oil is kind of anemic in flavor so I made my own

Garlic Infused Oil

  • 2 cups oil - I used light olive oil
  • 12 large garlic cloves cut in half

Warm the oil in a pot until just warm. Take off burner and put in garlic and let sit for 2 hours. Strain the oil and toss the garlic.

Keep the oil in the fridge for a week or freeze ( botulism is the concern here.

Homemade Ranch - lactose and garlic free
1/2 cup lactose free milk
1/4 cup mayo
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp dried dill
1.5 tsp dried parsley
1 Tbs garlic infused oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper

Combine all the ingredients in covered glass jar. Let sit for 10 min. Then shake vigorously.

This is better once chilled.


Sounds and looks yummy!
