This one isn’t so much a recipe as it is a suggestion/pro-tip.
At SAMs Club, near the spices and baking supplies, they sell a fairly big bottle of ranch powder.
The nutrition facts on the side are for 1/8 a teaspoon which is useless since half the values are set to zero, but I’ve done a little figuring and I think it would take over two tablespoons of the powder to make one PP. Which is really not bad, considering that for 8 oz of dip, you only need 1.5 tablespoons.
The directions suggest milk and mayonnaise.
I KNOW you guys aren’t dumb enough to think I would use mayonnaise in anything except maybe poison.
So here’s what I did:
1.25 cups of plain Greek yogurt (I used fat free chobani)
1.5 TBSP ranch mix
3 TBSP water
A pinch of salt
Then I mixed it together with a whisk in a bowl.
I tell you: it did not taste like diet ranch dip or low calorie ranch dip. It tasted like delicious, creamy, mmmmm ranch dip. Not as thick as a full fat store brand but not at all thin. Store brand can be clumpy. This wasn’t. Think, Greek yogurt consistency. Because #obviously.
For 4 PP total this dip was a hit at my house — we ate some with snap peas and celery stalks while watching Pretty Little Liars. We’ve eaten some of it two more times and are still on the original batch — so the above recipe makes a fair amount.
All in all, a really richly-flavored and fun to snack on dip for movie night or get togethers. I’m keeping it in mind for if we ever go to a party and need to bring a dip or veggie tray!
