Ranch Dressing is relatively new in my place but since my mayo is store-bought mayo I want to avoid it. This is reason one for trying this dressing.

Secondly, this silken tofu was in my fridge for ages. In fact, I was about to bin it as I did not know what to make out of it and I happened to stumble on this delightful low-calorie dressing.

Since it is tofu what kiddo generally refuses to eat I am happy to include this in our diet masked. She did not know Tofu was the star ingredient.

    Store bought dips are laden with preservatives and we cannot control the sugar and salt in them. Home made is always best. Loved the idea of substituting mayo with tofu. Wonderful share di !
