Back in 2012 when our family adopted an organic lifestyle, one of the hardest things to give up was store-bought Ranch dressing. Ranch dressing made it very easy for us to feed our kiddos fresh veggies and salads. We tried some of the organic Ranch dressings on the market, but none of them tasted anything like what we remembered, and most of them were full of sugar and other things we were trying to avoid.
Conventional dressings contain health-harming ingredients like nano-particles, GMO high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, brain destroying MSG and the list goes on. No matter how yummy Ranch is, we couldn’t do that to our bodies anymore and especially NOT our kiddos’ bodies.
I resolved to make Ranch dressing myself, and after much experimentation this is what I landed on. It is kid and Ranch-loving-husband approved, and it’s been a family favorite for 5 years now. I hope you guys love it too!
As I said, this dressing will last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator, however it never survives that long in our house because we eat it up so quickly!
Bonus tip: I am a total mason jar junkie and I love storing food in glass to avoid the toxins in plastics. I keep painter’s tape and a Sharpie marker in my kitchen junk drawer to label my food jars with contents and dates. Painter’s tape is easy to remove and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. Let me know what you think of the dressing when you try it!
