It might just be me, but I think that you could put ranch dressing on almost anything and it will taste good. As a kid if my mom allowed me to have it on my salad, it was always enjoyable. In college, well I had it with everything from pizza and french fries to sandwiches. Now, every time I think about ranch dressing, I think of an episode of MTV’s True Life a few years ago where they featured a girl who carries around a bottle of ranch dressing with her in her purse. Wow, that’s some serious love, but who am I to judge! It’s no secret that ranch dressing is a favorite for a lot of people and who can blame them- a good ranch dressing is really good!
Maybe you’re the die-hard ranch lover, or maybe you enjoy the occasional ranch dressing on your salad or you want to swap out mayonnaise on a sandwich for a little ranch. There are many uses for it that can enhance the flavor. Here is a recipe for an aerated ranch dressing (which I prefer) that’s a little lighter without loosing the flavor.
This recipe was created for a 1/2-pint Cream Whipper; it can be left as is or doubled for use in the standard pint-size cream whipper. The dressing will hold up for over a week in the refrigerator in the whipper or about 20 minutes at room temperature once dispensed.
- 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Whisk together all ingredients until well blended. Pour into dispenser, seal, charge with one N20 charger, shake well and serve.
