What is a good keto mayonnaise for ranch dressing?

If you want the healthiest keto cobb salad, you should opt for a brand of mayonnaise that isn’t filled with soy oil like many popular brands, such as Primal Kitchen. I buy mine from Thrive Market (aka the Costco of Whole Foods!). Read my Thrive Market review and get a free gift with your first order!
