You guys know this expat Texan girl loves her some ranch dressing, right? I mean let’s get real here – I honestly cannot think of a single savory dish that could not be made better with a hefty dose of ranch (either dressing or seasoning), and as far as I’m concerned it will always be that way.
I usually always have a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix in my pantry for those times where regular flavors just won’t do, but did you know (because I didn’t) that Hidden Valley has some really great vinaigrette dressings too? When I was charged to spice up a weeknight favorite with a Hidden Valley product I decided that I would just HAVE to do something amazing with another flavor component.
Ranch, you will always be my favorite, but this is a great go-to around our house now!
Now here’s the deal: I know you’re going to look at these ingredients (there are only 4) and think that I’ve lost my mind. You’re going to think I’ve gone a little nuts. And that’s fine – I probably have in some ways. But y’all, this is SERIOUSLY yummy and SERIOUSLY simple! You have about 5 minutes max of hands-on cooking time, and the rest you can spend with family or company.
I think we all know that makes a winning recipe right there, right? As far as serving suggestions I paired mine with some cooked quinoa and roasted mushrooms, but a side salad or any great vegetable would be great. I would recommend some kind of grain or bread to serve that yummy sauce over though – definitely will NOT disappoint!
