"Let's face it - Ranch Dressing is NOT exactly "low fat." But, this version is a 'bit' healthier; and, still has tons of flavor, and delicious. Serve and ENJOY! ... Transfer to a small serving bowl or jar, and refrigerate until chilled. I keep mine in a small mason jar. I think it is best after a few hours. Will last for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. I usually make enough for 2-3 nights of salads. It is delicious!"

Step 1

Dressing ... Add everything (except the bacon); as well as a pinch of both salt and pepper, to a food processor, and pulse to combine. Make sure that everything is completely mixed through. Taste and re-season if necessary; and, pulse once again. Then, add the bacon, and pulse just until the bacon is combined. If you don't have a food processor, make sure to finely chop the scallion and the herbs.

Step 2

Serve and ENJOY! ... Transfer to a small serving bowl or jar, and refrigerate until chilled. I keep mine in a small mason jar. I think it is best after a few hours; although, it can be served immediately. I prefer it served chilled. Will last for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. I usually make enough for 2-3 nights of salads. It is delicious!

Wonderfully flavorful dressing!! I made as written except I didn't use fresh parsley. I also didn't add the bacon into the dressing, but just added it when I put it on the wedge salad. Made in your memory, you will be missed.
