I’m excited to share with you my Keto Ranch Buttermilk Dressing!  

When I first met my husband, I shared with Shawn my love of gourmet cuisine. I took Shawn to one of the coolest pizza joints in my city. Upon ordering a delicious pizza with Keto crust, Shawn stated, “Do they have ranch dressing or sauce? On another occasion, we bought aged steaks from my favorite butcher and barbecued them. Shawn asked, “Do you have any ranch dressing for the steaks?” I soon discovered his love of ranch dressing. Shawn enjoys ranch dressing on spaghetti, with tuna casserole, and with all his desirable proteins — salmon, tuna, chicken, turkey, steak, pork, and eggs. Suffice to say, “ranch” is Shawn’s beloved seasoning.

In this household, we also watch our sugar and salt intake. For this reason, I decided to prepare a salt-free sugar-free ranch seasoning that I can use regularly as a seasoning and also in sauces and dressings.   

The key to this seasoning is buttermilk flavoring. To make ranch sauce, add the seasoning to milk or coconut milk. For your salad dressing, add sugar-free yogurt.  

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO RANCH BUTTERMILK DRESSING?

This Keto Ranch Buttermilk Dressing uses low-carb plain Greek yogurt.  Greek yogurt is the basis of this dressing. Yummy. Greek yogurt has many healthy benefits, such as:

KETO LOW-CARB CAESARS DRESSING

My Keto Ranch Buttermilk Dressing is not the only dressing you can prepare for salads and sauces for proteins like chicken. Plain Greek yogurt is a great base for creamy dressings that are keto-friendly. Here are a few options:
  1. Classic Ranch Dressing: In a bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of plain, low-carb (no sugar added) Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of heavy cream (or cashew cream for Keto Heart Healthy), 1 tablespoon of chopped chives, 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley, 1 teaspoon of dried dill, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Thin the dressing with a little water if it’s too thick.
  2. Caesar Dressing: In a blender, combine 1/2 cup of plain, low-carb (no sugar added) Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 1 clove of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until smooth, then slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup of olive oil while the blender is running.
  3. Blue Cheese Dressing*: In a bowl, mash 1/4 cup of blue cheese with a fork until it’s crumbly. Add 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

All of these dressings can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!

WHAT BLUE CHEESES ARE HEART HEALTHY?

As suggest above you can prepare a blue cheese dressing using plain, low-carb (no sugar added) Greek yogurt.  But keep in mind that not all blue cheese varieties are healthy.  Roquefort is one example of a heart-healthy blue cheese. Roquefort is a French cheese made from sheep’s milk. Roquefort is rich in a compound called spermidine, which has been shown to have protective effects on the cardiovascular system by reducing the risk of heart disease and improving overall heart health.

Another heart-healthy blue cheese is Gorgonzola, an Italian cheese made from cow’s milk. Gorgonzola is a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. It also contains probiotics, which can help to improve gut health and boost the immune system. It is important to note that while some types of blue cheese can be good for your heart health, they are still high in fat and calories. Therefore, it is best to enjoy them in moderation and as part of a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.

IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO RANCH BUTTERMILK DRESSING?

The Keto Low-Carb Ranch Buttermilk Dressing predominant taste sensations are tanginess from the buttermilk (or substitute buttermilk) and yogurt.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO RANCH BUTTERMILK DRESSING?

Keto Ranch Buttermilk Dressing can work with wine.  When pairing salad with wine, consider the dressing above the vegetable flavours.  This is especially true when preparing a salad with Keto veggies — cucumber, radish, spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, etc. With tanginess as the predominant taste sensation of this dressing, choose a crisp, dry white wine to match.  Let the wine’s acidity complement. the tanginess of the dressing.  Examples include Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Vinho Verde, and dry Riesling. 

WINE TIPS:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
