Nothing Hidden About this Ranch Dressing. It’s ALL Good and Good for You!

Ranch Dressing

Now that summer is in full bloom so are the fruits of the spring planting. The lettuce seems to gently wave to me in the breeze beckoning “Pick Me…Pick Me” and so I must oblige! There is nothing tastier that an “in season” garden salad full of greens and tasty herbs, tomatoes and cucumbers all at the peak of freshness and bursting with juicy flavor, topped with savory, tangy and healthy, YES HEALTHY Ranch dressing. Nearly everyone loves Ranch Dressing but not the calories, fat, preservatives and price. I can help with that! I’ve played in my kitchen until I’ve come up with a “two thumbs up” healthy version approved by even my 5 year old grandson. We all know what fussy eaters kids can be.
