Ranch Dressing

You have to make this ranch dressing.  You won't regret it.  I promise.  It's herbaceous, tangy, and creamy.  It's a great appetizer with chopped veggies, as a sauce for a chicken sandwich, or simply as a dressing on mixed greens.  I'm pretty sure any way you eat it, you'll be happy. I like to make a batch, cover it and have it in the refrigerator for a dressing I can use all week.

Ranch Dressing - Worth the Time

Yes, chopping the herbs and measuring out all of the ingredients can take some time, but as I wrote above, this is a food item that can last you all week. So, even though it will take a little bit of prep, it's 100% worth it.

If you're wanting to make the dressing a little healthier, you can substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream. I probably wouldn't substitute the mayo otherwise it might be too tangy. There's something so deliciously sinful about mayonnaise and this is a time to enjoy! This is a great party recipe because you can easily transport it and bring along my deviled eggs for good measure!
