A low fat dressing without the taste.

Top Review by Reeces Pieces

I'll admit, I only used the concept in this recipe and altered it to my needs, but it turned out delicious! I'm a picky eater, and mayonnaise products gross me out. As a child I loved ranch dressing, but once I found out it was made with mayo, I just couldn't get past it to enjoy it again. I used a single serve container of yogurt, about 12 oz of cottage cheese, and a package of Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix. I thinned it out to the consistency I wanted with milk. It tastes like a cross between ranch veggie dip made with sour cream and regular ranch dressing, but it really hits the spot. Since I used all low-fat and fat-free products, you could seriously eat half a cup of it and still not feel any guilt. And it doesn't have a low-fat taste at all. It tastes very indulgent. I tried it with loaded cheese fries and I liked that even better than on a salad. Thanks for a great recipe Audrey!

  2. Pour into bowl and stir in onions and seasonings.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes so flavors blend.
