There are not many things that do not go with ranch dressing. For many kids (and some grown-ups), it makes eating vegetables possible. So why settle for a preservative-laden store-bought version when it is so easy to make your own? Those versions can contain up to 16 grams of fat per serving!
Tell your family that you love them and that you accept that, yes, sometimes a bit of ranch does help the vegetables go down. Then make them this healthy homemade ranch dressing. It's delicious and pretty harmless-- therefore its an 80!
