When summer rolls around, I immediately start thinking about garden-fresh vegetables. And when I start thinking about vegetables, I can’t help but think about Hidden Valley Ranch. I’ve loved Hidden Valley since my dad introduced me to it when I was still a child. With nothing more than a bunch of homegrown carrots and a bit of time, my dad could easily polish off an entire bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing in a single sitting!
So when I was asked to participate in a unique promotion for Hidden Valley Ranch, I leapt at the chance. I was able to share Hidden Valley Ranch with my family and friends and spend some time reliving old memories and learning new tricks with one of my all-time favourite salad dressings.
I received an assortment of Original, Light and Fat-Free Hidden Valley Ranch Dressings. I immediately gave my friends some bottles of Hidden Valley Ranch to try out themselves. They were especially excited to see that Hidden Valley had some low-fat and low-calorie options for different lifestyles.
My husband also loved the fat-free dressing, but while I found the light dressing acceptable, I didn’t care for the fat-free version at all. There was just no beating that creamy and delicious taste of Original Hidden Valley Ranch in my mind!
Since I had more than just a single bottle for salad dressing and dip, I really spent some time experimenting with different uses for Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. I used it to punch up the flavour of grilled chicken breasts and to add a special creamy touch to marinara sauce. My favourite experiment was mixing Light Hidden Valley Ranch with a roasted red pepper and roasted garlic puree to make a dreamy dip for veggies!
I had a great time sharing Hidden Valley Ranch with my friends and family, but of course I wouldn’t really feel like I’d done my job unless I shared with my wonderful readers too! So I’ve decided to give away one bottle of each of the three varieties of Hidden Valley Ranch that I received to one lucky reader!
I love Hidden Valley Ranch and I’m so grateful to have had the chance to rediscover my love and find some fun new uses for a delicious family favourite. Whether you’re looking for a tasty salad dressing or dip for your veggies or you’re in the mood to get more creative with your cooking, there’s no end to the tasty uses you can find for Hidden Valley Ranch!
