I really like the Hidden Valley Ranch FF Dressing - not sure if you've tried that?

Just 2 Good

I can relate. The best I've found is the Just 2 Good line of dressings, including the Ranch. It tastes different than many others, and if it's not ff, it's close. Hope this helps!

at the salad bar at my local supermarket they have Ken"s fat-free ranch dressing in take-out pouches. i've never tried to find a bottle, though. it is tasty and i think it tastes like "real" ranch dressing.

No, nver have. I won't eat it. I pick full dressings because I just can't do those.

use your real dressing....

only, put the dressing on the side in a little cup and dip the tines of your fork into the dressing and then pick up a bite of lettuce.. you seriously will not use a lot of dressing and will still get all of the taste!

I love Ranch too and I have also wasted a lot of money on low-cal versions. I think they are all pretty gross.

I've read that you actually get more nutrients out of vegetables if you eat them with some fat.

I buy the packets of uncle dans ranch and mix it with fat free sour cream, which is super good. You could also mix in a little fat free milk to make it thinner to pour on a salad.

what is the sodium content in these packets of flavor? do you use the whole package at once, or can you store what you don't use?
