Healthy Ranch Dressing


The other night when I asked my husband, Brad, what he wanted for dinner, he replied, "Ranch Dressing." I thought this was so odd since what kind of salad dressing wasn't really what I had in mind and I'm more of an oil and vinegar type of gal. Immediately, I knew my version would be a healthy one, and I set out to create a delicious, dare I say, good for you version. This one is mainly made up of low-fat Greek yogurt and loaded with herbs. It's incredibly delicious and would be just as delicious as a dip or dressing. My husband was happy, and now we have a new dressing for our rotation.


Ingredients for Healthy Ranch Dressing:


1 cup 2% Greek Yogurt

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

2 teaspoons chopped parsley

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 +1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon white distilled vinegar

2 dashes of hot sauce


Time-Saving Tip: Prepare the dressing a few hours in advance for the flavors to blend.


Let's see what we need.




We're ready to cook.



Combine the yogurt and buttermilk in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk together and add the rest of the ingredients except for the herbs. Once blended, whisk in the parsley, dill, and chives; chill for a few hours before serving.


It's ready! Healthy Ranch Dressing is delicious and good for you. Pour it over salads, serve with chicken wings or your favorite crudite.


Enjoy!
