I used to work at a restaurant in college that was kind of known for it's salad dressing. Weird but so totally true. Store bought Italian Dressing and French Dressing (standard restaurant fare), homemade Ranch Dressing and finally, the piste de resistance if you will, what was known in our parts as
Perfect Caesar Dressing Recipe 2 tbsp mayo 2 tsp Dijon mustard 2 lg garlic cloves, pressed 1/2 C lemon juice (about 3 lemons) 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1 1/2 cups mild olive oil 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese Combine in food processor, adding oil in steady stream while blending.
Make your own Ranch, Dry Onion Soup Mix and Taco Seasoning and store in small mason jars
Ranch is so fattening!! Until now. This whole jar of ranch is only 1.75grams of fat and 255 calories! 1 cup dannon oikos plain greek yogurt 1packet hidden valley ranch mix 1/2 cup 1% milk. Whisk together chill 1hour before use. Perfect consistency and tastes better than bottled...Make your own or the holidays!
