The Fan of The World Of K-c’s have some questions on salad dressing. We would like to answer them.The inquiry comes the one the only…that’s right Aunt Broccolli!! One was how to make a low- fat ranch dressing. This is the best compromise between good taste and health. Because if it taste like crap your not going to enjoy it any way. And the other question is about how to make a dressing like Catalina healthier??? Try them out and let me know what you think!

Low-Fat Ranch Dressing

3/4 cup buttermilk (1%)
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
1 tablespoon finely chopped green onion or chives
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon of dill
1 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Salt and black pepper to taste

Throw it all in a food processor and it that simple.. if the herbs are fresh chop them by hand and add last so the dressing doesn’t turn green.

_raft Catalina Salad Dressing

1 cup sugar (replace with splenda)
2 Teaspoon salt
dash paprika
1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
1/2 Teaspoon celery seed
1/2 Teaspoon dry mustard
grated onion to taste
1/2 cup vinegar
2/3 cup ketchup
1 cup vegetable oil (replace with olive oil)
Place all ingredients into blender and mix. Store in jar in refrig
This dressing is not all that bad for your health as you can see above, I added a few suggestions to lower the calorie count. I don’t know if every on is familiar with spenda. It’s sweeter than sugar so use less than it calls for. Do it by taste. The taste buds never lie. So trust them!
