Quick Tip Recipe: Homemade Dressings | Indianapolis Food Blogger

Quick Tip Recipe to share with those of you who like to make your own salad dressings/dips.
Once you have a taste of homemade dressing, I doubt you’ll go back to store bought. It’s so simple and you more than likely have all you’ll need in the fridge already.

I spent Saturday evening cooking with an amazing group of women. We fellowshipped, laughed, watched movies and I showed them how to make #YoungBae Baked Wings, Fried Chicken Drummies and two homemade dressings to accompany them.  Yep. Homemade Ranch, and Homemade Blue Cheese.

I featured the Ranch dressing on my Pulled Chicken Ranch Sammies  but never shared the cool twist on turning Ranch dressing into Blue cheese. This is a total life hack recipe, it’s so simple, you’ll be making your own dressing all the time. Fresh Herbs and little elbow grease are the trick. Look how tasty the dressing looks on the Ranch Sammies…
