Ranch dressing is so overpriced at the store, and it just tastes really fake to me. This one tastes more like the expensive kind in the produce department. Made with yogurt instead of sour cream, you can eat it with a spoon and not feel guilty.

Yummy - but it needs a little garlic and dill. Used FF yogurt 2 Tbls lite sour cream AND 1-1/2 Tbls Mayo. Used dried parsley - ok but better I'm sure w/fresh. Add about 1/4-1/2 tsp dill weed. Needs more than 2 Tbls milk. Buttermilk even better. Added a sprinkle of garlic powder and garlic salt. Try mixing it in your blender rather than stirring as suggested. Helps get the green onion and parsley minced down and mixed in. 5 stars w/added garlic & dill! Read More

I really did not like this. I thought it tasted to much like yogurt with green onions. I guess I was expecting something else. Sorry Emily not for me:( Read More

Used half FF plain yogurt and half FF sour cream because that was what I had. I thinned out the dressing with lowfat buttermilk but it needed more than two tablespoons. Good as is but needs something. I'd like to play with this recipe a bit. I liked the parmesan very much. NOTE: This made a ton. Almost four cups of dressing. If you don't eat dressing several times a day like we do you might want to cut it back. Great for us. And you know the longer it sits.....the better it is. Read More

We really enjoyed this even though I made a slight mistake lol! I planned on halving this recipe so I bought 1 container of yogurt (fat free). I go to make the recipe and then realize that the only thing I halved was the yogurt and kept all of the other ingredient amounts the same but no worries because it was fantastic this way! I also added a clove of finely minced garlic. I will definately be using this recipe again and often very tasty! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This is very good especially considering how low in calories it is. I didn't have parsley and used cilantro instead which I think would be nice for Mexican food as a sauce. I put in some minced garlic as well. It tastes best the next day. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

So I (almost) totally ruined a batch of homemade yogurt and was actually looking for a recipe that called for sour cream to use up my oops when I stumbled on this. Thought "what the heck" and grabbed a cup of my almost but not quite yogurt stuff and made recipe - - - only change I had to make (probably due to thin consistency of my poor yogurmess) was to add a tad more mayo to tighten it up a bit. I do feel like it's missing something - not quite sure what (lemon juice?) but it's not had an hour to sit yet so will tuck away in fridge and come back once flavors have meshed:) UPDATE: oHHHHHHHH!!! yUMMMMM Read More

This is very good as a dressing or a dip. The Parmesan green onions and pepper provide so much flavor that you won't even notice this is a lowfat dressing. Read More

Fabulous! I made this to use as a dip w/"breaded chicken fingers" & they went together perfectly. I'd like to try this w/mayo &/or sour cream instead of mayo next time just a personal taste preference. Read More
