Ranch Dressing/Dip 1/4 cup 0 pts

Recommended Posts

Recipe makes one 8-oz. cup of dressing/dip.

 

15 Pringles fat-free, sour-cream-and-onion flavor potato crisps

1/2 of a 1-oz. packet of Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing Mix (dry mix)

2 TB fat-free cream cheese

1/4 tsp garlic salt (OR 1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp vinegar (or none, or more, depending on how tart you prefer)

1/2 to 3/4 cup water

 

Put all of the ingredients (Pringles, too) into an electric blender and blend on highest speed, scraping down sides of blender container at intervals until dressing is very, very smooth. Dressing may thicken over time. If too thick, thin with water. If too thin, add one or two more potato crisps and blend until smooth. Refrigerate any leftover dressing. Keeps for one week, refrigerated, in a food-storage container. Recipe can be doubled and tripled.

 

Point calculation:

 

Ranch dressing mix: 40 cal, 0 gm fat, 0 gm fiber

Vinegar: 0 cal, 0 gm fat, 0 gm fiber

Fat-free cream cheese: 30 cal, 0 gm fat, 0 gm fiber

Fat-free Pringles: 70 cal, 0 gm fat, 2 gm fiber

 

Entire recipe: 140 cal, 0 gm fat, 2 gm fiber

WW points per one 8-oz. cup: 2

 

Variation: For Salsa Ranch, add fat-free salsa to taste.

 

Notes:

 

- Pringles fat-free crisps are specified because they contain a fat substitute that gives the dressing a high-fat flavor and texture.

 

****I've made this several times and have found the easiest way to prepare it is to take a 2 cup measuring cup and let the Pringles soak in the water for a while before adding the rest of the ingredients. No muss, no fuss.

Oh thank God. A ranch dressing/dip that won't be gross. I hate the ff ranch dressing found in bottles. This sounds like something I could love!

Here's a low-fat mock up of the Outback restaurant ranch dressing. This stuff is awesome and is great as a dressing and a dip.

 

I calculate it as less than 1 pt per tablespoon.

 

 

1 cup HELMANNS light mayo

1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk

1 tsp Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk ranch mix (MUST be the buttermilk mix)

1/8 tsp paprika

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp black pepper OR 1/4 tsp course black pepper

 

Mix and chill.

 

The packet of ranch mix you buy will make three batches of dressing so save the extra. Also the small container of buttermilk will make two batches of the dressing.

 

*** USE HELLMANS LIGHT MAYO. Made this once with Kraft Light Mayo and it was too vinegary. Shoulda stuck with the Helmanns. ***

I made this today.

 

I doubled the recipe, and added too much garlic powder, so it tasted like a garlicy ranch.. it was so good!

 

Next time I make it, I'll add less garlic powder, but boy oh boy, is this dressing like the "real" thing!!!
