From the kitchen of Michelle Hilleson Michelle writes: I've collected these recipes from various places, so they're not really "mine". I've made the ranch, citrus ginger, blue cheese, western, and thousand island and have been pleased with the outcome. Ranch and Western are staples at our house, better known as "white" and "red". The ranch dip is something I came up with based on the dressing recipe and is one I take to potlucks and picnics regularly...really easy and really good. I'm looking forward to trying more of these this summer! Have fun with them. Healthy Ranch Dressing Takes just 2 minutes to stir up!

Terri's Notes

~ Experiment, make these your own. All make up small portions, so you can afford to test and then make larger portions of your favorites next time.
~ Not all are low fat, sorry, so watch the portions.
~ If low fat is what you're after, you have to try the Creamy Citrus first!
