Ranch Dressing

It's easy to make your own delicious, healthy ranch dressing.

  • Using your food processor if you have one or a knife if you don't, dice the onion and garlic (I used a shallot since I *gasp* ran out of garlic).
  • Dice (don't food-process) the dill and celery.

  • For full effect, let your dressing sit in the fridge for an hour before serving. This lets the flavors combine.
  • It's great on salads and as a dip for veggies and chicken wings. I've been experimenting with adding less and less mayo, which yields a lighter flavor.
