(recipe, Carrie Floyd)
What is it about ranch dressing that kids — and adults — love? To make a lighter, less sweet version of bottled dressing, I've added yogurt to the mix and reduced the sugar to a pinch. Feel free to fool around with the herbs — substituting fresh for dried, dried for fresh, adding more if you like. In my house, if it's a creamy buttermilk dressing with green flecks, it's ranch.
Culinate editor's note: When chilled and thickened, this dressing makes a great dip for crudités.
