THE RANCH DRESSING COLLECTION
RANCH DRESSing recipes your children
                            will love

Having raised four children I know that when they're young, they don't enjoy olive oil based dressings. So start a child loving salad with RANCH DRESSING. Later, when salad always makes them happy, start with Oil, lemon dressings, (My favorite toppings for any and all salads are pine nuts, toasted, anchovy paste out of a tube, a lot of it, like a tsp minimum, with the garlic and small part of the avocado  mashed into it to thin it down, ready it to become part of the emulsion. WORCESTSHIRE SAUCE (which is a rotten fish sauce,) also should go into dressing and sliced onions. The best salad is garnished with pitted black Greek olives. But again, all that's for salad aficionados. THE BEGINNER's CIRCLE entails making rich RANCH DRESSING.

YOGURT AND MAYO EASIEST OF ALL
Equal amounts yogurt and Mayo, stir in chopped onions, add any good seasoning salt. VOILA! Parmesan on top of salad. (I always add raisins, chopped apples, sunflower seeds and pecans to salad.) Grow my own arugula and Chicory. Throw some of that in too, and cilantro. You acquit yourself cheaply without buying costly buttermilk & RANCH POWDER MIX.
