Healthy Ranch Dressing

15 Aug

We all love that creamy dressing, whether on a salad or as a dip for carrots and other veggies, but we also know we aren’t feeding our bodies very great nutrition while having it.

That is why I had to buy it when I found it. You may ask buy what? A big container of Ranch Seasoning Powder. Nothing too bad in the powder, it’s what the directions say to mix it with that’s the bad part! Mayonnaise? No thank you.

The funny thing is, even when substituting something else for the mayonnaise, it still has the same great flavor. And guess what? it isn’t only just good for healthy dressing, but serves as a great seasoning for almost anything! Chicken, veggies, even quinoa like I did with this recipe in another post!

If you like the flavor of ranch, you should certainly invest in some of this. And if you don’t want a big container like mine from Costco, then they sell mini paper packages of a couple servings at most food stores!
