to open up this bottle of Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing.
Everyone I know who has tried it has been raving about it. And I love the Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard and Greek dressings.
But I’ve never been a huge fan of ranch dressing. So it’s been sitting, untouched, in my pantry. Until today. And all I can say is…
Damn! This stuff is amazing!
I made myself a very simple salad. Pre-washed spring mix and diced red pepper, with a few pieces of nitrate-free bacon on top, then drizzled the Primal Kitchen Ranch on top.
Sooooo good! With some leftover chicken or steak on top it would have been a great entree salad.
Now, I haven’t eaten commercial ranch dressing in years, but I am guessing this has a little bit more of a spicy kick to it. The dill and parsley stood out to me. The consistency was a little thinner than I expected, which is a good thing. I don’t like thick, gloppy dressings.
But what really makes this special, besides the taste, are the ingredients. Avocado oil and organic apple cider vinegar to start with. Avocado oil is high in antioxidants and helps with nutrient absorption. Apple cider vinegar is so amazing I wrote a whole post about it…. DNCE and ACV .
Another key ingredient is nutritional yeast, which adds great flavor and many nutrients. It’s especially high in B vitamins. I’ve used nutritional yeast from time to time in my cooking…might have to do a post on it soon.
Here’s what the Primal Kitchen website has to say about this amazing dressing:
“Primal Kitchen dairy-free ranch is the holy grail of dressings: an uncompromisingly delicious, rich, full-flavored and oh, so healthy ranch dressing. Using 100% pure avocado oil, our ranch includes only the finest health-enhancing, nutritional ingredients, including organic garlic, onion, dill, cage-free organic eggs, nutritional yeast, black pepper and chives. And that means no dairy, no buttermilk, gluten, soy, canola or sugar in sight. So go ahead and finally enjoy your childhood favorite again! No guilt here.”
If you are looking to liven up your salads, I highly recommend this dressing, along with the Honey Mustard and Greek dressing from Primal Kitchen.
Most commercial salad dressings (even from many of the “natural labels”) are made from oils like soybean, safflower and canola. Not only are these processed with high heat and solvents, they are typically made from GMO crops.
For years, I was making my own salad dressing to avoid these highly processed oils. While I’m still cool with making my own dressing (and will probably share a recipe with you soon!) I’m thrilled that some healthy and delicious options are finally available.
So, of course you’re wondering…can Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Ranch dressing help you stay happy, healthy and hot?
Of course it can! And so can the Honey Mustard and Greek dressings!
You’ll be happy eating such a tasty salad. The ingredients used, including avocado oil, organic apple cider vinegar and nutritional yeast are all very healthy. And subbing salads in for some high carb meals can help you maintain a healthy weight. The avocado oil is a healthy fat that keeps your skin glowing and your hair shiny. So you will be very hot!
What are you putting on your salad?
