Let’s be honest—it’s tough to top Ranch dressing. However, I think this zesty recipe gives the creamy topping/dip a run for its money. It’s just as creamy and flavorful as the real thing—plus it’s loaded with fresh herbs and bits of crumbled turkey bacon (yum!). Not to mention, my version is a measly 35 calories per 2 tablespoons. Use it to dress up your favorite mixed greens or toss it with my Cobb Salad in a Jar.
