Let me tell you about this homemade ranch dressing. Our family is working hard to live a healthy lifestyle. In an effort to know more about what we are consuming we decided to give up a lot of food items we had become accustomed to. We read labels now and try to make healthy, homemade versions of some of our favourite foods. One staple our daughters really missed was ranch dressing.
As a dip for fresh flowering vegetables, or over a salad, ranch dressing was always a classic in our home. I am thrilled that ranch has had a comeback for us with this fresh homemade version that is just as good (if not better) than the ones that used to occupy our fridge.
