Skinny Cucumber Ranch Dressing/Dip

26 Jul

We got a cucumber from FFTY and I never know what to do with cucumbers. I like the taste of them fine, but they weep all over everything you use them in and that’s annoying. Luckily, the FFTY newsletter included a recipe for this dressing. I didn’t use it as a salad dressing, though. I mixed some of it with some Greek yogurt to make it thick enough to be a dip for veggies. It was a nice change!


  • 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and seeds removed
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup chives or scallions
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender and serve.
