Ranch dressing is at the top of the list of Americans' favorite salad dressings, but it might shine even brighter as a dip. Ranch dressing is delicious served with everything from raw vegetables to fried chicken wings. This recipe takes just 5 minutes to whip up.
Delicious though ranch dressing is, you might want to pay attention to how much you use on salads or scarf down as a dip. A serving of 2 tablespoons adds about 145 calories to your daily intake; this varies a bit depending on the recipe, but it's a good ballpark number. The main reason for this: 15 grams of fat, some of which is saturated. Ranch dressing is the direct opposite of health food, but it sure does make everything taste heavenly.
