My breakfast this morning was a salad:
|Sunrise ranch salad.|
|Deconstructed beef kebab salad.|
A healthy dollop of guacamole went on top.
As you can see from this shot - a certain furry someone is fully recovered :-)
|Connor is hoping that I will suddenly keel over while taking pictures so he can get to enjoy/steal my salad.|
The dogs did get a nice chunk of beef to enjoy - Connor was just hoping for a miracle.
This morning I made more of my ranch dressing. The first time I made it I made a batch that was enough for 5 - 6 servings.
Making a big batch was a huge mistake. I could not control myself from going back to the jar over and over again until I finished all the dressing in one day.
Self-control is not my strong suit at times...
So, this morning, I am including a version that serves one for those of you that are like me and become unrestrained around ranch dressing.
For my salad I washed and dried 2 cups of iceberg lettuce and 1 cup of spinach.
Then I diced up one scallion and 1/2 an heirloom tomato.
I did want some protein so I poached an egg.
Then I made the infamous dressing. I didn't have all the ingredients for the original version so there are some substitutions.
Ranch Dressing for one
1 tsp of Vegenaise
1 tsp of unsweetened soy milk
1/2 tsp of water
1/2 tsp of Siggis non-fat plain yogurt
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp of dried parsley
Whisk all of the ingredients together and let sit in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to give the flavors a chance to marry.
Drizzle the dressing over any greens or vegetables of your choice. Enjoy!
*Note* this recipe makes an intense ranch flavored dressing which is what I was looking for but if you want a more traditional ranch flavor reduce the onion and garlic powder to 1/8 of a tsp each.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!
