Need a great ranch dressing recipe

Anyone have one that doesn't call for soybean oil or canola oil or mayo? I need one that doesn't have these harmful things in them. Thanx.

  • Hidden Valley powder and make with plain yogurt or sour cream instead of mayo.

  • The ones I've found online call for mayo; I can't do mayo cuz it's made w/canola and/or soybean oil. The ready made dressings in the stores all have canola and/or soybean oil too.

    Anyone else?

  • I don't have one but can you switch out the oils/mayos for sourcream or creamcheese maybe?

  • Yes, the sour cream instead of mayo is a given BUT the Hidden Valley poweder has MSG in it. I guess I'll have to start experimenting on my own.

  • Mix together equal amounts of the following dry ingredients:
    salt (use a natural salt such as sea salt or Himalayan salt)
    dried bell peppers (I used Simply Organic "veggie pepper" that contains black pepper, onion, garlic, celery, and bell peppers...if you don't use this, add some black pepper along with dried bell peppers)
    garlic powder (powder, not garlic salt)
    onion powder (powder, not onion salt)
    evaporated cane juice (Sucanat or Rapadura, you could also substitute any dry sweetener you like, but it will taste different)
    parseley flakes

    Mix 6 Tbl with one cup of any combination of: buttermilk, plain yogurt (I use fat free greek style), mayonnaise, sour cream, silken tofu, apple cider vinegar
