Yogurt Ranch

and I don't even like ranch

This past weekend I went through one of my notebooks and found a few recipes and ideas I never got the time to fully test out or retry. And since we’re all being a bit less social than normal, with some extra time, why not go through those goodies and test em out? First up, the yogurt ranch dressing.

I know I’m about to state something very controversial here, and feel free to judge, but I don’t particularly like ranch dressing. At least the kind that comes pre-made and out of a bottle. But sometimes ya just want a creamy dressing that’s not blue cheese.

Buttermilk is the classic base to ranch dressing and I don’t tend to have it on hand, but I do always have some plain yogurt sitting in the fridge, so why not use that. This dressing mainly consists of some plain yogurt, full fat, greek is a good bet, and some dried spices you probably already have. This also makes a great dip too, just in case you’re not in the mood for a salad.

Yogurt Ranch

and I don't even like ranch

The Dressing:
  • 1/2 C Plain Yogurt – Full fat, Greek is a good bet.
  • 1/4 C Olive Oil
  • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Lots of fresh ground black pepper
Salad Stuff:
  • Lettuce – I used romaine and red lettuce here
  • Fennel – Totally optional, but highly recommended
  • Some fresh herbs – if ya got em, chives, tarragon, basil, dill, etc.

Combine all your dressing ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. If dressing is too thick you can thin it out with a bit more lemon juice.

Arrange all your salad veg on a chilled plate and drizzle over plenty of dressing, scatter with fresh herbs, some flaky salt and plenty of fresh ground black pepper.

Yum
