I have a little bit of a love hate relationship with ranch. Sometimes I love it and can’t get enough and sometimes, depending on the brand, I hate it and find it too sweet and fake tasting. And light and diet ranch pretty much never like them. That was until I came across a basic ranch recipe at chow.com, made a few minor tweeks, and found a skinny ranch I LOVE. Full of fresh herbs and lemon, it tastes great and is perfect for just about anything. The dressing is not as thick as typical ranch, which I actually like. If you want it a little thicker, substitute 1/4 cup light mayo for 1/4 cup buttermilk and you will get a thicker dressing.

For a thicker ranch with a dip consistency, consider using 1/4 cup buttermilk and 3/4 cup Greek yogurt.
