Sometimes the only dressing that will work  (for things like salads, veggies, fries, pizza, etc.) is the dreaded ranch. We all know that ranch is typically not very good for us and should be saved for special occasions. (like chicken wings!) But the light ranches just will not work in my opinion. I always find myself wanting that “restaurant ranch,” and even the full-fat versions from the grocery store are disappointing.

Lucky for us it doesn’t have to be dreaded anymore. Bolthouse Farms has come out with a Yogurt Dressing that naturally decreases all of that fat and calories that usually come along with ranch dressing. What is even more amazing than the nutrition stats? The flavor! It is reminiscent of the “restaurant ranch” that I love. You know, for those chicken wings. ;)

Nutrition:

2 Tbsp – 1 serving

70 calories

6 g fat

2 g sugar

Other varieties include: Chunky Blue cheese, Caesar Parmigiano, Thousand Island, Honey Mustard, Original Coleslaw and Creamy Italian.

Have you tried these dressings? Thoughts?

    Hello lover. Haha seriously I do love ranch dressing although I am a little bit ashamed ;) You’re right about the light versions not cutting it. I have found some that I thought were light and were delicious. Turns out the were full fat and the nutrition information was listed for one tablespoon. I was spitting mad! Love the stats here.

      I hear you that ranch can be a little shameful, but it really shouldn’t be!!! I always order it at restaurants :)

    I haven’t tried those dressings. Are they sold refrigerated or in the regular dressing aisle? I have to admit, it’s rare that I buy bottled salad dressing, so am not current on the new ones.

      They are refrigerated – if you ever need a creamy pre-made dressing try them out!

    I saw that in the grocery and wondered how it was! You make it sound so great I can’t wait to try it.

    I don’t usually buy dressing, I just make my own. I have a great recipe for ranch dressing made with yogurt and buttermilk. I am going to have to look for this in the grocery store, it sounds delish! Thanks for sharing!
