This healthy ranch dressing recipe is made with Greek yogurt and only takes five minutes to throw together. Best of all, it tastes just like normal ranch!
How do you make healthy ranch dressing? In this recipe we use plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo and sour cream. The only other ingredients are herbs, seasonings and a splash of milk. It is a simple yet healthy recipe!
Does this recipe taste like real ranch dressing? I did a blind taste test with my husband, hot Tom, and he couldn’t tell the difference. Granted my testing had a sample size of one, I think it’s safe to say it does taste like real ranch!
Can you use dry herbs instead of fresh? Yes! I’ve used both fresh and dried herbs in this recipe and both taste great! Substitute 1 tsp. of dried herbs for 1 Tbsp. of fresh chopped herbs and vice versa.
Use Fresh or Dried Herbs
1/4 cup fresh leaves = 1 Tbsp. fresh chopped = 1 tsp. dried
