Quick Tips: 3 Dips and Salad Dressings You Need

There are a few recipes my friends always ask me for, my Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette, Ranch Dressing and Green Goddess Dip. They’re almost too easy to make, but I take all the credit! Liven up any veggie platter or salad with these and I swear your guests will lick their plates.

Greek Green Goddess Dip

1 cup low fat plain Greek Yogurt

1 cup low fat mayonnaise

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup fresh mint

1/2 cup fresh parsley

1/2 cup fresh basil

1/2 cup fresh scallions

1/2 cup feta (I use sheep’s milk feta because it’s milder and very creamy


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Roni’s Ranch Dip

16 oz low fat sour cream (I use Daisy, it’s the only ‘real’ sour cream with very minimal ingredients)

1/4 cup fresh chopped dill

1/4 cup fresh chopped chives

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dip


Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Allow to sit for at least an hour before serving.

Lemon Herb Vinaigrette


1 lemon, juiced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

Pinch of sugar

1 teaspoon of dried Herbes de Provence

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar with a tight lid and shake vigorously. Place in the refrigerator and keep for up to 5 days.
