Real Ranch Dressing
Is there anywhere in the Philly area I can get real ranch dressing? I'm talking made with dairy(e.g., buttermilk) and no vegetable oils. Everything I see now is soybean oil. Thanks!
I make mine from the Hidden Valley Ranch powder mix. Directions are to combine with a cup of mayo and a cup of milk.
I lighten it by using a little Hellmans canola mayo, but substitute non-fat yogurt for most of the mayo. Simple and good.
i also second making it yourself - it is really easy and tastes worlds better. here is the recipe i use:
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream or greek yogurt (full fat greek = much creamier dressing than 2%)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives/scallion (optional)
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon parsley (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
