4 Ingredient Yogurt Ranch

This is good on EVERYTHING. It is as good a veggie dip as it is a dressing, and it is so fast to make. So simple and so healthy and so gratifying. I love fermented foods and consume them en masse: pickles, kombucha, kvass, kraut, sourdough bread… but I often relegate my yogurt consumption to sweets. I’ll add fruit or chocolate or honey or maple syrup or jam… and I won’t get to appreciate the sour and savory potential of this awesome source of protein and probiotics.

I use herbes de provence in this dressing because I use herbes de provence everywhere. It’s easy, and the herbs present in the mix are anti inflammatory, immune boosting and good for your digestion. ┬áCombined with the symbiosis of probiotic yogurt and prebiotic, anti inflammatory garlic, this makes for an amazing way give your gut flora an extra boost.
