ranch dressing recipe

Once you make this homemade ranch dressing recipe, you may never want that bottled stuff again. Really. It tastes much better, and without all of the soybean oil and preservatives, it's better for you.

Ingredients:

  • Garlic (1 large clove)finely minced, then mushed with a fork
  • 2 small Scallions (green onions - including most of the green. You can also use Chives here.)
  • Mayonnaise, 1 cup
  • 1 cup of Whole Organic Milk or Buttermilk OR 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp. ground Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped Fresh flat leaf Parsley or 2 Tablespoons of dried parsley

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Adjust thickness/thinness according to your preference. Best if refrigerated for at least an hour, but can be served right away.

Nutritionals listed first using buttermilk, secondly using organic whole milk and lastly using cream/water* which lowers the carb count from .9 per 2 tablespoons to .4 per serving. They're all low in carbs compared to bottled versions.
