  1. You can substitute strained plain Greek yogurt for the mayo and go with the homemade ranch seasoning noted about…Chemical Free!


  2. I make my own homemade ranch and use the following spices: garlic powder, onion powder, dill, parsley, dried shallots, & chives. You can use dried or fresh spices.
