Simple tasty little snack! I made half the recipe and cut way back on the oil and I still got really good coverage. I love the zing from the lemon and dill!

These are simply wonderful! I grated the peel from a fresh Meyer lemon (one lemon...I didn't measure the peel). And I used 1 cup of peanut oil, which--by the time I added the dry ranch dressing, the garlic powder, lemon peel and dill weed and whisked it up--became one and a half cups. I am taking them to work tomorrow as a "light appetizer" for a wine, cheese, appetizer White Elephant exchange. I am absolutely positive it will be well-received. LATER: And it was...thoroughly enjoyed by all.
