Homemade Ranch Yogurt dip and salad dressing

So now that you’ve made my Dry Ranch Seasoning mix, it’s time to have some fun with ways to use it. The uses for my ranch seasoning are nearly endless, but this yogurt dip/salad dressing is a really easy way. This single dip is responsible for my daughters newfound love of carrots! She loves dipping carrots in this. Frankly she likes the ranch dip more than the carrots, but as a mom you pick your battles. Luckily this is a win-win for both of us, since this dip has no added oil and is made from yogurt and herbs, there really isn’t any thing wrong with her love for it. Most ranch dressings contain mayonnaise as a base. Organic Greek yogurt is great for this if your main use for it is as a dip for veggies and chicken wings. I prefer Bulgarian yogurt, it’s more tart than Greek and not as thick, it’s the perfect texture for both a salad dressing and a dip, but go with a yogurt that you love. It’s important to pick one that you love, because this is the base of your salad dressing or dip and you want the base to taste good.

If you have fresh herbs you can skip my ranch seasoning and use the below:
1 tablespoons organic parsley chopped finely
1/2 teaspoons of organic dill weed chopped finely
1 clove garlic grated
1.5 teaspoons of onion powder
sea salt to taste
pink peppercorns ground ( you can sub black pepper) to taste

Add the ingredients to a mason jar or glass bowl and mix well.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate to allow the flavors to meld for at least 30 minutes. Serve with veggie sticks, over salad, or with my recipe of Lime and red pepper flake wings. You really can’t go wrong! I have a few upcoming recipes that I’ve made using the dry ranch mix, stay tuned!
