a pregnant lady’s request ~ ranch dressing.

 

okay, my pregnant friend has requested some recipes for her pregnant tummy.

nothing makes me happier than when someone eats my food and then asks for the recipe.

nothing.

i’m working on a creamy salad dressing that is light and tangy.  in germany, they have this dressing that is vinegary, but creamy.  it’s divine.  not gloppy or mayonnaise-y.  i made my own version of it…

RANCH DRESSING WITH FETA

DIJON MUSTARD

DILL RANCH PACKET

MILK

FETA CHEESE

CHIVES, BASIL, AND FRESH WHATEVER.

JUICE AND ZEST OF A LEMON.

LOTS OF FRESH CRACKED PEPPER

USE A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING, THEN KEEP WORKING ON YOUR MIXTURES.  I LIKE A THINNER DRESSING, SO I ADD ALMOST A CUP OF MILK.  THE FETA CREAMS IT ALL UP, AND THE REST ARE FOR FLAVOR.  

THE MORE FRESH HERBS, THE BETTER.  TRY VINEGARS TOO, IF YOU LIKE A MORE TANGY DRESSING.  AND MAYBE A LITTLE GREEN ONION?  LOVE GREEN ONION.

 

CHEX MIX AND GRANOLA RECIPES COMING UP!!!

  1. I’m going to step out on a limb here and try making ranch w o mayo! How is this possible?! I will report back. I adore mayo, and Joe despises it.

    • HEY LADY! I NEVER MAKE RANCH WITH MAYO, SO I CAN TELL YOU HOW! YOU CAN USE MILK AND YOGURT OR MILK AND SOUR CREAM, OR SOMETIMES I JUST ADD HALF&HALF AND LEMON JUICE AND DIJON MUSTARD. IT’S THINNER, LIKE THIS WHITE DRESSING THEY HAVE IN GERMANY THAT I CRAVE ALL THE TIME. RECENTLY, I USED MILK, LEMON JUICE, DIJON AND FETA CHEESE, AND BLENDED IT. IT WAS MY FAVORITE, I THINK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD LAUGHING COW CHEESE. THAT’S A GREAT LOW-CAL THICKENER!
