It’s hard to find dressing without a long list of ingredients. This post will teach you How to Make Homemade Healthy Ranch and you’ll never head to the grocery store for dressing again!
If you’re a sauce girl, raise your hand! ME TOO. I love hoisin smothered all over my buddha bowls, hummus all over my veggies, and of course, secret sauce (Franks + Greek Yogurt). The more sauce the better, do you feel me?
Though I love all the sauce I can get, it seems like store bought dressings and sauces are all packed with sugar. Yes, there are so many more options nowadays than in the past, but I’ve come to the conclusion that making a homemade dressing or a sauce is always the way to go.
RANCH, it’s a dressing that is generally associated with crunchy salads and carrots. When I close my eyes and think back to growing up with Wisconsin, I can just smell the tangy scent of Hidden Valley Ranch. It was always being smothered on top of a crunchy iceberg lettuce salads that you ordered before your Friday night fish fry…because that’s what you do on Friday nights in Wisconsin.
I’m usually a vinaigrette girl, but I found myself craving ranch with my salad the other day and didn’t have any in my fridge. SO, Linley and I decided we would play with a recipe. GUESS WHAT, we had all the ingredients we needed in my pantry + fridge. It was a sign from the Ranch Gods.
