Blue Cheese Ranch Dressing

I was digging back in my old recipes that for whatever reason never got posted & I came across this one. All I did was substitute the full fat mayo for light mayo & viola, the lighter version was born. This is a great macro friendly dressing for salads. It only has 9g fat in it. You could even use less mayo or substitute a light sour cream to reduce it even more but I need to be eating more salads & this is how I plan on doing it. 

When I lived in Nashville there was a local restaurant that had the best ranch & blue cheese so I always ordered 1 of each & combined them together, to get the best of both worlds.  So, one bite of this took me back to living in Nashville.  

Try to use a good blue cheese, one that is creamy, it just gives it a much better texture, that's all.  This recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons, so you don't need much. Go ahead & splurge on a good stuff, it's worth it!! 

1/2 cup light mayo
1/2 cup sour cream 
1 green onion, all parts, minced
1-2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tsp parsley 
2 tsp red wine vinegar 
2 tbsp buttermilk blue cheese (from Fresh Market)
1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 stp pepper or to taste 
3 T water, to thin out 

Makes about 1 cup 

2g Carbs
9g Fats
2g Protein

Mix everything together in a small bowl. Allow it to sit in the fridge for about an hour to get all delish. Enjoy!!!
