Garlic, Dehydrated: Minced 1 oz bag $1.40
Coriander Seeds, Whole 2 floz bottle $1.90
Mustard Seeds, Yellow 1 oz bag $1.05

Pan roasting the spices and then freshly grinding them accentuates the unique and smoky flavor of this twist on a classic ranch.

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a small skillet over medium heat, dry roast pepper, garlic, coriander and mustard seeds until just aromatic or the seeds start to pop. This will take 1 to 3 min.; stir constantly. Immediately transfer to a small bowl to stop the cooking and avoid burning. Transfer roasted spices to a spice or coffee grinder and grind into a coarse powder. Place ground spices in a medium bowl. Add the mayo and yogurt and stir to incorporate the spices thoroughly. Stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Chill before serving.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve chilled over salad, as a dip for your favorite wings, or alongside veggie platter.

Yields:

2 cups

Smoked Black Pepper Ranch Dressing

    I am not a Ranch Dressing fan. I just don't understand why people go crazy for it. That being said, I really liked this recipe. It's "ranch-y" enough to please the people who are ranch lovers. But it's different enough to appeal to people (like me) who don't love ranch. It's even better if you make it a day ahead and let the flavors develop overnight. I served it as a dip and as a dressing. Everyone who tried it loved it.

“As always, thanks for the great selection! It's time to start restocking the shelves for spring. Also, wanted you guys to know that the care and time you take in your spicing craft is greatly appreciated!”
