This healthy homemade ranch dressing with Greek Yogurt is just as tasty and flavorful as the original with some added protein to it.
I love ranch dressing!
I put it on everything. I’m not sure if it’s a Utah thing, but I’m still proud of it. Ranch dressing literally makes my heart happy. I love to dip my veggies it in, eat it on burgers, and use it on my french fries. At times, I’ve been guilty of eating it by the spoonful, but only the homemade version. Most store bought ranch dressing isn’t my favorite.
When I was a kid, one of my sister’s and I would beg our mom to buy the Hidden Valley ranch dressing seasoning packets. We would devour those things. I often just wanted to eat the seasoning packet alone without any sour cream. We would use the seasoning packet to make our own ranch. We liked it thick, no added water. Just sour cream and seasonings. Whenever I made it, I added extra seasoning because I just love the taste of ranch.
My sister and I were actually just talking about our ranch making days. She loves ranch too, in the same crazy way as me. But I don’t think she was eating the seasoning on its own by the tablespoon. She was asking me for alternatives to ranch, and I told her to make it with Greek yogurt instead. I even shared this recipe with her because I had tested it out as part of the LUCC Your Body Program.
