Low-Fat Ranch

I know, your saying to yourself Ranch is not part of a healthy diet, “it’s so fattening”, well I would like to introduce you to the new improved low-fat Ranch Dressing.  This is a simple easy dressing you can make at home, using only 3 ingredients. And the most amazing part of this recipe is the entire jar of dressing only has 290 calories and 1.5 grams of fat.  As a kid Ranch dressing is considered a staple in your diet.  You would never dream of eating chicken nuggets, carrots or fries without dipping them in this delightful sauce.  But as you get older and you realize your metabolism begins to falter when those insane growth spurts come to a screeching halt, food begins to have new ingredients you never heard of before, calories and fat.  So, I would like you to say hello to Ranch again.  Feel free to begin dipping veggies, eating salads with dressing and enjoying a childhood favorite.   So, go on start dipping and pouring again.  Enjoy!

    Really looking forward to trying this recipe! Who doesn’t love Ranch? And, by using Greek yogurt, this dressing has added protein too!

    It was great- we both loved it. I used Fage instead of Okios but it still turned out yummy- plus knowing we were getting our protein when we used our dip was a great bonus!
