Real Ranch Dressing

SONY DSC

This is a wholesome take on the store bought stuff; better taste, better price, better for you.  I’m willing to bet you have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge already.  Makes the perfect dip to get those kiddos eating more veggies…or they could just drink it right out of the bowl

  1. Have you subbed greek yogurt for the sour cream in this, or would that change the flavor too much? I usually sub yogurt on most recipes that call for sour cream..

    1. you could most definitely try it, Bridgid. I substitute greek yogurt quite a bit in recipes too. The reason I dont use it in this recipe is because 1) the dressing would not be as creamy and would be much more liquified. if you do try it i would consider not adding the buttermilk in an effort to thicken it up
      2) it would change the taste significantly, which isnt a bad thing. it would just taste more sour and less creamy..that just wasnt what i was going for:)
      let me know what you do…would love to hear how it goes!
