Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing

Here recently I have been doing a ketogenic diet.  This is an extremely high fat low carb diet that has to be done with clean real food and healthy fats.  This ranch works perfect for that. I actually call it my keto ranch.

Whisk together all ingredients. Store in refrigerator.

I use 2 Tablespoons at a time usually, but I eat fairly large salads.  Pictured above is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz nitrate, nitrite free ham, 1/2 oz shredded carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, and the ranch.  Pictured below is 3 cups spinach, 2 oz shredded chicken, 3 slices of nitrite, nitrate free bacon, 1/2 oz shredded organic carrot, 1 oz raw cheddar, 1/5 tomato, and the ranch.  Other salad favorites to add are boiled eggs, avocado, black olives, mixed greens.
