Tangy Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

I used to be a ranch girl. ALL.THE.WAY

What was the point of eating a salad without slatering it with Ranch?

No ranch? No salad.

Well you see, that thought process was ohhhh, about 10 years ago when I actually had this now mythical thing called a metabolism.

With old ago, I have smartened up.

As much as I still love love love ranch, I had to quit it.

I don’t do store brand dressing.

Something about store bought salad dressing, just tastes off to me.

I have tried all the brands, and I’m not a fan of any of them.

Making your own is super simple, you can either mix it up in a blender of right in a bowl and I bet you already have all of the ingredients sitting right in your pantry already.

If you like tangy, full of life salad dressing, this one is for you!

    I should probably switch to this dressing too. I looove ranch, and it has to be Hidden Valley brand. My sister got me into dipping pizza into ranch, and me and my thighs hate her for it!
