  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1½ teaspoons dried dill

  • 1½ teaspoons dried cloves

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk


Place dry ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until well mixed, or place in a pestle and mortar and grind.

Add 1 tablespoon of blended dry ingredients to yogurt and buttermilk. Mix.

Store dressing in an airtight container in the fridge; store the excess dry blend in an airtight container.

Note: Because the calories are so low in this Healthier Ranch Dressing, the serving size of 2 tablespoons only counts as half an orange container. The dry Ranch Seasoning Blend is considered a free food.

Tip: If you don’t have buttermilk, squeeze some fresh lemon juice into some milk (it must be milk and not a milk alternative). The acidity causes the milk to curdle slightly and has a similar taste and consistency to buttermilk

Per serving: ¼ portion of seeds and dressings
