Introduction

If you love ranch dressing, but hate the calories and can't stand the taste of the artificial "fat free" varieties, you may really love this alternate. based on the idea that substitution doesn't work - only real ingredients that are the way they naturally occur taste good, this ranch dip or dressing uses yogurt and cottage cheese to create that creamy flavor without the fat and calories. The serving size is a very GENEROUS 1/8 cup of dressing, and has only 30 calories! Indulge with a dressing so good and wholesome you could eat it with a spoon, If you love ranch dressing, but hate the calories and can't stand the taste of the artificial "fat free" varieties, you may really love this alternate. based on the idea that substitution doesn't work - only real ingredients that are the way they naturally occur taste good, this ranch dip or dressing uses yogurt and cottage cheese to create that creamy flavor without the fat and calories.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup plain yogurt
    1/2 cup cottage cheese (recipe uses 2% fat, you can use any, but I find the lower fat ones don't taste as creamy and don't save enough calories to be worth it)
    Remaining ingredients should be adjusted to taste:
    2 tbsp parmesean cheese
    1 clove garlic, chopped or pressed
    2 tsp dried dill
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp black pepper.

Directions

Put all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth. If you desire a thinner dressing (this is a dip-like consistency) add milk and blend until at desired consistency.

Makes a great dip or dressing!
