Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe

HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING

My husband loves to dip vegetables in blue cheese dressing. To make this a healthier snack for him, I decided to make homemade ranch dressing then add blue cheese crumbles. Homemade mayo is excellent in this recipe.

While there are less additives / preservatives in the homemade version, dressing is still high in calories even with light sour cream. Though my homemade mayo incorporates unsaturated fat via canola / olive oil, it's still high in calories.  Use in moderation.

This is best the next day; it thickens and the flavors intensify. Recipe inspired via a submission to allrecipes.com.
