It’s hard to beat a homemade ranch dressing. That’s especially so when it’s on top of a wedge of cold iceberg lettuce with all the fixings. Crisp red onions, chickpeas and kidney beans are a must.
I also like a bit of smoked bacon or fried chunks of Parma Ham. The chunks of Parma ham are a bit more difficult to come by but God are they good.
That’s what I used in the wedge salad above.
We brought a leg of Parma ham back with us from our last trip to Italy and believe me, cutting small chunks off of it are a lot easier than those more traditional paper thin slices.
I’ve been making this same ranch dressing since I was a kid. Little has changed. There’s just no need to change a thing. Hope you agree with that one.
As with most good salad dressing, this ranch dressing recipe can be made a few days in advance.
In fact if you do that, it will come out of the fridge nice and cold which is the way ranch should be served.
Just be sure to whisk or shake it up well before serving.
