I still love me some Heinz, but somewhere along the way I developed another passion. Unfortunately this one is not low in calories or fat grams, oh no, I love me some Ranch dressing. Capitalization intended, Ranch is sadly a friend of mine. He’s the ‘bad’ friend, oh the pounds I could probably blame on him. Possibly even worse than my friendship with him, I have sadly passed on this obsession to most of my children.
The good news here is I eat a lot of salads. The bad news is I eat them loaded with cheddar cheese, bacon bits, croutons, and a hefty dollop of ranch. One of my favorite guilty pleasures is a bowl of crispy Lays original chips and with a massive amount of Hidden Valley Ranch dip. Oh, I swear I get shivers just thinking about the delicious salty tang.
My new quest in life is to make the perfect homemade Ranch dressing. I have searched the recipe sites and checked ratings but so far have not met with success. I made a huge batch of a ranch mix…dud! So still I search. I’ve found a couple that are really good, but I want O’Charleys or Texas Roadhouse good. Know what I mean? Do you have it?
Oh please, please share and yes, my trainer will not be happy with you, but you can have my (and my kids) eternal gratitude.
