Expert Tips

  • You can eat this dressing right away, however, the longer you let it sit, the better it is going to taste as the flavours begin to build off of each other.
  • Fresh herbs bring a deeper, fresher flavour, so I highly recommend using them if you can! If not, dried herbs work in a pinch.
  • If the dressing it too thick once fully cooled, add more heavy whipping cream until the desired consistency has been reached.

    Why are veggies and ranch dip so ridiculously good? Like, what’s the point of a veggie platter without ranch? This low carb ranch is such a great, easy go to recipe. I love that I typically will always have the ingredients for this in my fridge and pantry. No boring veggies in this house!
