Go Ranch-Crazy With Tessemae

This is a sponsored post. I was compensated by Tessemae and I received delicious product samples as a member of the Mom It Forward Influencer Network. As always, all thoughts and opinions are so very much my own.

Ranch is America’s #1 dressing, Tessemae’s makes 25 different dressings, marinades and condiments! USDA Organic #NothingHiddenHere #notinOURranch (ad)

There’s something you should know about me.

I’m ranch dressing crazy. I’m ranch dip crazy. If there’s a party, I’m by the dips. I could eat entire meals out of dressings and dips. If I’m expecting ranch, and I take a mouthful of anything else, I’m disappointed! I buy potato chips and vegetables for parties, in the hopes they’ll have good ranch there. I used to try to buy it for myself, to have a party at home, and I came up short every time. It just wasn’t healthy enough. Or it didn’t taste good enough. Or there were too many ingredients and I couldn’t pronounce any of them. It was off-putting and disappointing. Until I tried Tessemae!


Apparently I’m not alone in my love for ranch, because it’s America’s #1 dressing! What many people don’t realize, and I didn’t for many years either, is that most ranch brands are full of sugar, preservatives and artificial ingredients. Tessemae is different. They use only clean, simple, real ingredients, and there’s nothing behind their ranch. You can enjoy your Creamy Ranch completely guilt free. They make 25 different dressings, marinades and condiments – and they use real, whole sourced food ingredients. They are USDA organic, and are available at Kroger. Tessemae is also available at Walmart.

I love my guilty pleasures, but to have one of them be guilt-free is pretty awesome. There are few things I won’t use ranch dressings and dips with. I’ve even been known to dip my pizza into it! It gets my family to eat more vegetables, and I love Tessemae’s many uses. We tend to favor a more natural view on food – whenever possible – so I appreciate these alternatives.


First, we have a red and green salad, in honor of the holidays. I take 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, 6 cups of mixed greens, 2 cups of fresh sliced strawberries, 2 cups of fresh grapes, dried herbs, and then I dress with Tessemae’s ‑ All Natural Organic Creamy Ranch. If you really want to get fancy, you can heat the pecans in a skillet over medium heat, until lightly browned. You can also add cheese on top! This is gorgonzola, but I usually favor other kinds over this. You can go crazy!

Then for an easy party recipe, you just need puff pastry, cheese, bacon, and ranch!
