This super creamy greek yogurt ranch will become your new obsession. At least that’s how it’s been for me. I’ve been using it to dip my carrots and veggies in, drizzle all over my favorite salads and even dip my cauliflower pizza crust in.

Most of the time when I buy yogurt ranch, it’s full of weird additives. This recipe is small batch and homemade with ingredients you can actually pronounce, plus the greek yogurt adds a nice boost of protein. It can be kept in your fridge for up to a week, but trust me it never lasts that long.
