Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing | THM: FP

There’s Ranch Dressing, and then there’s pickle juice Ranch Dressing! This wonder ingredient does so much more than provide amazing flavor to North America’s favorite salad dressing:

  • it takes the yogurtiness out of the high-protein, low-fat dressing
  • it thins out an otherwise thick dressing and makes this recipe a Fuel Pull
  • it increases the amount of probiotics in the dressing if you use the juice from lacto fremented pickles like Bubbies
  • it makes use of the pickle juice left over in a jar that not everybody loves drinking straight up

Since there are only 1.7 grams of fat in two tablespoons of this Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing, you can have a 1/4 cup of dressing on a salad and still be under your 5 grams of fat limit for E and FP meals!

There’s no reason for your low-fat salads and sandwiches to be low in moisture and flavor…Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing easily fixes that problem.

Making this Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing could not be any easier. It’s just a matter of dumping a few everyday ingredients into the blender and blending until it’s smooth. Boom. Done. 

All you need to whip it up:

Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing keeps well in the fridge for a long time in a sealed jar or airtight container. Just give it a good shake or stir before using.
