Single Foodie Tip: Ranch Salad Dressing Mix

One of my favorite "go-to" seasonings is ranch salad dressing mix. Since I mostly make meals or snacks for one, I never use a whole packet. I pour the packet of ranch powder in a clean empty spice bottle so I can have it on hand and easily accessible when ever I want to quickly zing up flavor!

Ideas:
  • Sprinkle on raw chicken or shrimp before cooking
  • Ranch Vinegarette for one: 1/2 tsp ranch powder, 1 tsp white wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp brown mustard. Whisk together.
  • Make a healthy dip for one, 1/4 c. plain yogurt + 1 tsp ranch powder
  • Add to whisked eggs for scrambled eggs, egg tacos or omelets.
  • Add to egg or tuna salad. Here's my recipe for Avocado Egg Salad (no mayo) 
  • Add ranch powder, butter, and parmigiano cheese to pasta. 
  • Sprinkle on a baked potato.
