Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Finished

When I made the decision to cut out processed foods, one of the first items to eliminate was all of the bottled salad dressings. If you have read the ingredient panel, you know exactly where I am going with this. Most ranch dressings contain MSG! Even those little packages that contain dry ingredients and then you add milk, yogurt, mayo or sour cream still contain MSG. Many other commercially sold salad dressings and flavors contain ingredients such as soybean oil, excessive amounts of salt and sugar, natural flavor, sodium benzoate, corn syrup solids, caramel color and preservatives. These are processed ingredients and should be avoided.

I have come up with a healthy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing you can make at home for half the price! Simply add our Dill Seasoning Blend to sour cream or Greek style yogurt. Then add a few fresh ingredients and you have a creamy, delicious and healthy ranch dressing! Serve over fresh salads, use as a dipping sauce for hot wings or serve alongside a vegetable tray. In the weeks to come, I will be focusing on some new recipes for additional salad dressings and flavors that use our products; including some tasty vinaigrettes!

1 C. sour cream or Greek yogurt

    A nice addition to your recipe pages would be a ‘link’ to print it. Another would be to ‘order’ the featured item, since many of us (or at least ‘I’) live too far away to just stop by your store to purchase it!

    • Hi Billie, I appreciate the feedback! You are absolutely right about a link to print and an order feature item. Our food blog is getting a new look after the first of the year which will offer these convenient features and more. It will be more user friendly and easier to navigate. Stay tuned for the new blog after the first of the year! Thank you for your interest and helpful comments. Diana
