Prep Time: 15 minutes
1 cup The BEST Skinny Ranch Dressing (3 ingredients) or store-bought light ranch dressing
1 cup jarred salsa, I like Pace Chunky Salsa (medium)
1 (8 oz) container fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon taco seasoning, I like Lawry’s (for gluten-free, use Mc Cormick’s)
2 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
1 cup tomatoes, diced and drained
¾ cup reduced-fat Mexican blend cheese or cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup (1 oz) reduced-fat tortilla chips, crumbled for topping (for gluten-free use Guiltless Gourmet yellow tortilla chips)
1. In a large bowl, mix together the ranch dressing, salsa, yogurt, and taco seasoning. Mix well. Spread on the bottom of a large, shallow dish or pie plate. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and shredded cheese. Sprinkle the crumbled tortilla chips all over top. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Note: You can make the dip in advance, without the toppings and refrigerate for several days. Add toppings, before serving.
2. Serve with baked tortilla chips, carrot and celery sticks, cucumber slices, or red bell pepper slices on the side, if desired.
Makes 12 servings, 3 tablespoons each. The entire recipe makes ~2½ cups total.
This dip makes an amazing, low calorie, low-fat salad dressing. Make the dip and leave off the toppings. Serve on any mixed green salad or Mexican style salad. It’s even yummy drizzled over tacos and burritos.
