“I’d like another side of ranch…”
So.. sometimes you get a craving for something so bad for you that there is really no substitute… like ranch dressing. Not Rachael Ray “from scratch ranch” but straight out of the packet Hidden Valley ranch. Traditional recipe… 1 part buttermilk, 1 part mayonaisse, 1 packet ranch. I’ve tried a few variations to make it just a wee bit healthier e.g. low fat Greek yogurt, “low fat” mayo; but nothing really tasted close enough to kill the jones. Tonight… success. 1 cup nonfat buttermilk, 1 packet ranch, 1 avocado, and a blender… My friend’s 5 year old boy, who had to be coaxed into trying this green paste, after a few sour faces pronounced it good… “tastes like ranch” . Can’t think of a better slogan. Hardly low fat… but at least its avocado fat.
