Oh yes. I'm going totally overboard. But I love knowing I'm not feeding my family as many chemicals, 'modified' food ingredients and other engineered oddities. There's just something so peaceful about that...
That reminds me. Weeks back, I'd gone into a natural store. I was looking for natural snacks ... in a box. A friend reminded me that a natural snack might be, say... a carrot? Yeah. Still thinking inside the box, but I'm working on it.
Back to homemade dressing. If you're not on board with the whole 'natural' thing, this is still a great recipe for any ranch dressing emergency, or if you just want to try something different.
Homemade Ranch Dressing
1 tbsp parsley
1 cup mayonaise (homemade if you prefer)
to taste vinegar (I use 1/2-1 tsp)
to taste worcestershire sauce
to taste dill (lemon dilly dip mix from Epicure works)
to taste sugar
1/2 cup sour cream (shoot! I just realized sour cream has 'modified
milk ingredients' and 'modified cornstarch'
and other 'engineered oddities'. Oh well...)
Mix and enjoy!
