Put a little ranch (dip, dressing) on….

Let’s be honest, there’s not much that can’t be improved by the addition of ranch dressing or dip, right?  And anything that can’t be, probably needs peanut butter or chocolate again, but that’s a subject for another day.  My kids I will eat almost anything with ranch.  But the problem with ranch, is that generally speaking, it’s full of fat and the commercially prepared varieties are full of all kinds of other ingredients and preservatives I can’t pronounce and would prefer to avoid.  So what’s a ranch loving girl to do?  Create her own of course!

The nonfat Greek yogurt in this dip or dressing gives it a great creamy consistency without all the fat in traditional ranch dips and dressings.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 c of nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1.5 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chives
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar

Preparation

  1. Blend all ingredients
  2. Chill for 20-30 minutes
  3. Serve with veggies for dipping or use as a dressing
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
  5. Keeps until mold is growing on it when you open the use by date for the yogurt
