A tangy, creamy ranch dressing made with fat free cottage cheese and low calorie powder ranch mix.
I used part of a packet of low calorie ranch dressing powder & used my submersion blender to smooth it out. Add a little h2o to get the consistency wanted. 1/2 cup serving of cottage cheese is about 80. So as long as you don't drown your food, you're way ahead of the game.

Use greek yogurt (which is fat free and high in protein) in place of cream, mayonnaise, and sour cream when you cook. Mix plain greek yogurt with ranch seasoning to enjoy fat free dip, and add a little skim milk to make a ranch dressing. It can be added to soups, sauces, dips, and drinks to add a little creaminess without the fat.
Mix a very small amount of ranch (preferably reduced-fat) with some salsa for a great salad dressing or dip. You can enjoy the creaminess of ranch and the spicy flavor, but only with minimal fat and calories!
Love creamy salad dressing, but hate the calories that come with it? Ask for your dressing on the side (or put in a bowl at home) and dip the edge of each lettuce leaf and veggie in it. You'll use a lot less, but get all the flavour!
Yogurt dips make excellent salad dressings! Lower in calories, plus they have protein.
