Yid.Dish: Creamy Garlic Ranch Dressing

This is a really satisfying (and healthy) dip. When you taste it, you wont believe that it is made with yogurt! they key is to taste as you go – and keep adjusting the seasoning until it tastes just right (after all some garlic cloves are HUGE other are tiny, some are extremely potent others barely have any flavor at all … so trust your tastebuds.

Yield: 2 cups


2 cups plain/unsweetened whole milk or low fat yogurt

1-2 cloves garlic – grated or finely minced

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar (white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice may be substituted)

2 tablespoons dried or fresh dill

1 teaspoon black pepper

½ teaspoon salt

Procedure: Combine all ingredients, initially adding only one clove of garlic. Taste, and adjust for seasoning, adding additional garlic, vinegar, dill, salt and pepper to taste.
