Ranch dressing is everywhere. You can't escape it! Don't try, it's delicious. But store-bought bottles of the stuff contain some peculiar ingredients and end up a far cry from the homemade probiotic version. I know we are turning a few of you into Yogurt Masters so throw a wee bit of the yogurt you are now in the habit of making weekly towards this recipe and have tangy treat to turn to for snack time. 

  • 1 cup Plain Homemade Yogurt
  • 1 TBSP of fresh or 1 tsp of dried dill weed, or any soft herb of your choice (woody herbs such as rosemary are not the best for this dressing)
  • Pinch of salt and a good grind of pepper
  • 1 small clove of garlic or 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 6 TBSP oil - your preference
  • 2 TBSP parmesan
Put yogurt, garlic and spices in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. With the food processor running, add the oil slowly so that it emulsifies. Use immediately on your salad or put it in a container and store up to 1 week in the fridge. Makes one and a half cups of dressing.
PS. Buttermilk would be an awesome substitute for yogurt. Because you're making that too now right?;)
