Recipe: Kefir Ranch Dressing

Take ranch to the next level with this kefir creation

Ranch dressing: the perfect dip for wings, crudités, pizza (gasp!) and so much more. If you love it as much as we do, prepare for an updated version that will blow the bottled stuff out of the water: We're hooked on this recipe from Covina in NYC that uses the popular probiotic beverage, kefir. While the restaurant smothers its fry bread (see the recipe) with this ranch, we give you permission to use the tangy condiment however your heart desires.
