If you are like me and believe that the mere “2 tbsp” suggested serving size of ranch dressing is typically what to use on two baby carrots, then today’s Healthy Ranch Dressing Recipe is for you.
With just a few ingredients, you can make your own ranch dressing for a TON fewer calories and fat than the pre-made kind you buy. I simply used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. The uses for Greek yogurt, are really endless. I seriously need to buy that stuff in bulk! By doing that, I cut out a ton of fat while still keeping great flavor and texture, and added a LOT of protein.
I also used an organic ranch dressing mix to keep this recipe a lot healthier and eliminate preservatives. For just 1 Point, you get a 1/3 cup serving of ranch dressing…now that’s what I’m talking about! Pour it over a salad, use it as a dip for veggies or pretzels, and slather it over a baked potato…I’m getting really hungry now just thinking about all the ways to use it!
Ranch lovers – you now have a go-to healthy dressing recipe that can let you indulge while still keeping you on track to reach your diet goals. Enjoy!
