Creamy Ranch {21 Day Fix}

photo (29)

I’m going strong on Day 4 of the 21 Day Fix.  Thus far, this program has seemed very sustainable.  I’m not hungry and I am exploring new options to fit into my allotted containers each day.

One thing that I really enjoy is being able to dip veggies and being able to cover my salad with dressing — but of course, this isn’t the healthiest option.  I used both of my orange containers for my Cheeseburger Salad, but I knew I needed for find another alternative so I can use those orange containers for other goodies!  So, I created my own, protein-packed, creamy Ranch.  It’s perfect for dipping or for topping a salad.  And, since it’s a protein, it’s a red container food — meaning I can have half of a red container with veggies for a snack and then use the other half later on a salad for one red container!  It’s perfect.

I love this Ranch and I think I’ll continue to use it even with I’m not on the fix!  I stored mine in the fridge in glass mason jars, but you could always just reuse the cottage cheese container as well.  This makes a LOT of dip/dressing — and the best part is, it’s okay to eat a lot of it too! 🙂

Creamy Ranch {21 Day Fix}
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 20
  • 20 oz. of 2% cottage cheese
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1½ tsp. dried dill weed
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried chives
  1. In a small bowl, combine the dry seasonings and stir. In a blender, add the cottage cheese, white vinegar, and dry seasonings and puree. If the mixture is too thick, it can be thinned with water, 1 or 2 Tbsp at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Store in the fridge and it should be good until the date on your cottage cheese container.

  1. I see you share interesting content here, you can earn some
    additional money, your blog has huge potential, for the monetizing method, just search in google – K2 advices how to monetize a website

  2. The handset comes out of the box unlocked, so you can choose any network you wish with it, and also offers both a rear-facing 5 megapixel camera for video and
    photo capture and a front facing camera for video calls.
    While this is better than not driving traffic to anything of yours,
    it is ineffective when compared to driving traffic to a location-specific landing
    page with a strong offer and several convenient methods of
    contacting the clinic. In short thewy gave me all the information I needed to know to generate my sales
    strategy for the coming year.

  3. Does this count as 1 Red? I was guessing it does by your picture but wanted to double check.


  4. This looks delicious. I havent tried making dips with cottage cheese yet. (Everyone is only allowed 1 orange per day. Not 2)

  5. I just made this and it is FANTASTIC! This is truly an absolute game changer! Thank you so much for sharing this. My husband and I are both trying to follow the diet and one of things he missed most was his ranch dressing. This is absolutely delicious and I completely understand why you wouldn’t want to go back to regular ranch dip afterwards! Absolute winner!

  6. I have yet to jump into the cottage cheese and fruit realm, but I think this could be a good way to get my feet wet. I suppose I could get the cottage cheese flavor without the texture I’ve dreaded to put in my mouth. Have you tried this recipe with yogurt?

    • Hi Lindsey,

      Yes, plain Greek yogurt would work as well. I like the flavor from the cottage cheese a bit better. 🙂


  7. very nice! Love the idea. To make it glutten free can I leave out vineger, and still get a good flavor?

    • I think it would still taste good without the vinegar. The vinegar just adds a bit of tang — more like a buttermilk ranch.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      The Dip is a red container. Carrots or salad would be a green container.

      I hope this helps!
