Homemade Healthy Ranch Dressing

0 comments

I am in love with salads. One would think it's because I'm a vegetarian, but no my friends, that is not why. I am obsessed with ranch dressing. Ever since I was little, I have taken to ranch to make my salads delicious. I blame my cousin for this obsession. Whenever the family went out to eat at Mexican restaurants, she always ordered ranch dip, so thank you Komal (if you are reading this) for making ranch dressing a weakness of mine. 

However, as I grew, I started learning how unhealthy ranch dressing is and that, even though the bottle may say fat free, it is defeating the purpose of a healthy diet. If you haven't guessed so already, I am really into finding homemade healthier alternatives to my meals, and I am glad to say I have found one for ranch dressing as well.

Let's get to it!!

Calories: Approximately 15 calories for 3 tablespoons
Preparation time: less than 10 minutes
Serves about 20 people

Ingredients:
1 cup of fat free plain yogurt

1 tbsp of dried parsley flakes
1 tbsp of oregano 
2 cloves of garlic
0.5 of an onion
0.5 cups of chopped jalapenos
Nutribullet or any food processor

Steps: 
1. Place onions, jalapenos, and garlic cloves in the nutribullet and blend everything to a paste. 
2. Add the yogurt, parsley, and oregano. 
3. Blend until it is a creamy paste. 
4. Enjoy with a salad or as a dip. 



I enjoyed my ranch dressing with a salad, some tortilla chips, and a collard vegetable wrap (recipe for which will be posted soon).


Bon appétit!
