Emily's Famous Parmesan and Peppercorn Ranch Dressing

"Ranch dressing is so overpriced at the store, and it just tastes really fake to me. This one tastes more like the expensive kind in the produce department. Made with yogurt instead of sour cream, you can eat it with a spoon and not feel guilty."

Yummy - but it needs a little garlic and dill. Used FF yogurt, 2 Tbls lite sour cream AND 1-1/2 Tbls Mayo. Used dried parsley - ok, but better I'm sure w/fresh. Add about 1/4-1/2 tsp dill weed...

Used half FF plain yogurt and half FF sour cream because that was what I had. I thinned out the dressing with lowfat buttermilk, but it needed more than two tablespoons. Good as is, but needs so...

Followed recpe closely. Added more seasoning and parmesan cheese as suggested by other reviewers. First day it tasted like the yougurt with seasoning and green onion. I did not lose faith! ...

We really enjoyed this, even though I made a slight mistake, lol! I planned on halving this recipe, so I bought 1 container of yogurt (fat free). I go to make the recipe and then realize that th...

This is very good as a dressing or a dip. The Parmesan, green onions, and pepper provide so much flavor that you won't even notice this is a lowfat dressing.

This is a great dressing on the Spinach tortellini salad.

I really did not like this. I thought it tasted to much like yogurt with green onions. I guess I was expecting something else. Sorry Emily, not for me:(
