When I started this blog in 2015, it was a way for me to force myself to eat healthier and stay away from junk food. Because if we’re being honest, fried, salt loaded, high calorie junk was (and sometimes still is) my JAM! But I was determined to find ways to eat healthy and still love the way my food tastes.
Fast forward to today: I love healthy food! But salads…..let’s talk salads, shall we?
I’ve always struggled to love (or even like) salads. There are a few exceptions to my general feeling towards salads, however. The first exception being a creative salad with unique elements, like this Roasted Beets & Sweet Potato Salad! The second exception being a delicious, homemade salad dressing. A good dressing can really take a salad to the next level!
This 10-Minute Healthy Ranch Dressing is DELICIOUS and lasts up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator!
Y’all. This stuff is the REAL DEAL. All of my fave things about traditional ranch dressing, but lightened up and healthy. It’s also loaded with probiotics and more delicious things because it’s made with whole milk kefir! Have you tried kefir before?
I recently discovered Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Kefir for the first time and instantly became obsessed. I even made these Maple Cinnamon Pecan Overnight Oats with the vanilla flavor and it was SO good – oh my goodness! Really wish I could let you sample them through the screen right now (c’mon technology!), but you’ll just have to trust me and head over to the recipe.
Since then, I thought I’d try the plain flavor out in this 10-Minute Healthy Ranch Dressing recipe, and let’s just say WOW. I mean, no big deal, but it basically makes this recipe! Not only is it incredibly creamy and delicious, but we’re talking more than 56 billion live probiotic cultures in each serving of Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Kefir. So in other words, A LOT of probiotics in our ranch dressing, here. Now that’s something to get excited about!
