So our family has this thing with Ranch Dressing. We love it…we actually love it a lot….well, that’s not quite true. We love the Ranch that the local bar serves with its combination platter. We all believe it is different from the Ranch you get in any bottle at the grocery store.
Well prior to Christmas, Kelli, our daughter, ordered from a pizza place in Decorah and they had the same Ranch. Up to that date, Kelli had been having lots of trouble with morning sickness (or rather an all-day sickness) with her pregnancy. That has since been some better but, the Ranch was something she could tolerate. She ended up writing a request on her Facebook wall and asked anyone if they knew the recipe for the Ranch at the restaurant.
A couple of people replied. All said the key to the recipe was this packet of Ranch…
Notice it says “Restaurant-Style Dressing”? It’s different than you typically see in the grocery store.
They all said to use… THIS RECIPE. The link hasn’t been working. I tried fixing it. Try this by copy-pasting it.
Kelli was so sweet and for Christmas, she made a batch and put it in these nice containers for us for Christmas.
We are really practical gifters and seriously, I loved this for a gift and will be making it on a regular basis from now on. Each of us who got one was so happy with the gift! Yep, we’re restaurant Ranch lovers, what can I say?
I sure didn’t even know there were different versions of Hidden Valley. I know now, and I also know that this is my favorite.
If you can’t find this packet at your local grocery, I think you can get it HERE on Amazon.
So if you’ve loved Ranch from restaurants better than Ranch in the grocery store, give this a try.
