17 RECIPES USING RANCH DRESSING

This recipe was adapted from Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 by Todd Wilbur The recipe called for one teaspoon of Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix (Buttermilk Recipe).  I used the one teaspoon and tasted it.  Having lived in the New Orleans area, I like my food with a lot of flavors.  I decided to add the entire one-ounce package of ranch.  One package includes about two and a half teaspoons dry Ranch in each pack.  To me, this extra seasoning was perfect.  It tasted a lot like Outback’s version of Ranch.

Under the recipe for the Copycat Ranch Dressing, Cayenne Ranch, and the Southwestern Ranch you will find some of my favorite recipes using the magical ingredient.  These dressings can be added into recipes to add loads of flavor to them.

Delicious Recipes Using This Copycat Ranch

Cayenne Ranch Dressing

If you like a little spice in your life, this recipe is for YOU!  I am not kidding when I say I could drink this Cayenne Ranch.  It is fabulous!  I find myself whipping up this dressing weekly.  It is fantastic on a salad, on fish, chicken fingers, or even on a sandwich.  It is not hot, but it does have a spiced up flavor.  If you are familiar with the Cayenne Ranch Dressing at Slim’s, this is similar.  This first time I made this dressing, it was because my oldest daughter, Carly, kept bragging about Slim’s Cayenne Ranch.  I whipped this Cayenne Ranch version using the Copycat Ranch Dressing as my base, and she loved it.  YEAH!   I hope you will enjoy it just as much.

The recipe for this Cayenne Ranch is included below and just below the recipe is a list of my favorite recipes I have made using this Ranch.
