Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing

IMG_7946

Growing up, “good ranch dressing” was always my favorite, keyword here is “good”. I was famous for loving only “good ranch dressing”. What makes it good, you may ask? As soon as I tasted it, I knew if it was good…or bottled. That’s really how I feel about most bottled dressings; I can just taste something artificial in the background, something a little off. So started my tendency to make my own fresh dressings from scratch. Why not? It’s so easy to whip up a lemon vinaigrette or a creamy balsamic. One dressing I’ve surprisingly never tried to master is ranch dressing. I’m happy to say that I finally got around to it. And I didn’t create just any other ranch dressing recipe. I came up with a seasoning blend that is made specifically for protein-packed Greek yogurt as the base, a popular concept these days. The difference is, my seasoning blend is the perfect amount to mix into an individual size Greek yogurt container, making it quick and easy to whip up ranch for 2-4 servings of dipping, spreading, and drizzling. To make my version even more awesome, I played around with the seasonings until it was perfectly rich and flavorful. Easy, healthy, delicious, and done.
