If wanting to eat real food as the majority or all of your diet, ditching processed salad dressings and dips can be hard! They are full of ingredients that make us want more and more….ingeniously designed, right!? But, the problem is that they quickly turn something healthy into junk food with all their artificial ingredients, added sugars, MSG, artificial colors, and more.
I have a son who LOVES ranch dressing and will only eat certain vegetables with this dip. Yup, he’s my picky one. (Sometimes I wonder if it’s because he started the first 3 years of his life eating a highly processed food diet). Payback!
So, for us, it wasn’t an option to ditch the flavor if I still wanted him to eat fresh veggies. Instead, I began searching for a healthier option. Ideally, I’d love for it to be dairy-free, but I’m not going to split hairs here. :p
So, I started making this recipe often while keeping plain greek yogurt on hand so I could. But, all of the ingredients started getting too time consuming to pull out, measure, and put away for each time we wanted ranch dressing or dip.
SO, I decided to pull out baby jars I’d saved from years ago, and put homemade seasonings in them. This saves me SO much time. Now, all I have to do is measure out the seasonings, put in the vinegar, and stir into Greek yogurt. Piece of cake.
You’re going to loooove it! 😛
