Homemade Bold Radish Ranch Dressing

This homemade dressing is a wonderful way to liven up boring lettuce.  I love radishes but after a few slices they can be a bit too intense for me.  That is the reason this recipe came about.  I decided to combine the creaminess of ranch dressing with the bold flavor of radishes.

A few months ago I was contacted by a representative from Chobani.  Yes, the folks that make one of my most favorite ingredients!  They wanted to know if they could send me an assortment of their Greek Yogurt products.  Well of course I said Heck Yeah!  Okay, in my head I said Heck Yeah! … then I sent a calm and professional email response that read: Why yes, that sounds wonderful.  I am so pleased you contacted me and look forward to connecting again in the future … Heck Yeah!

Anyone who regularly follows my blog knows that I use Greek Yogurt in about half of my recipes.  I love, Love, LOVE the stuff!   So basically due to my Greek Yogurt obsession and the crate full of Chobani that I was lucky enough to receive, expect a lot of upcoming recipes that include Greek Yogurt.  Starting with this peppery Radish Ranch Dressing that will brighten up any salad!

  1. I love this idea! I’m not a big fan of ranch but I’m going to soon have an overabundance of radishes and this is such a clever way to use them up. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Carla S. says:

    Oh thanks for this recipe. I have to try it for my hubby. He LOVES radishes! He grows the ones named ” French Breakfast” radishes. They are not hot and strong like most radishes. I agree with you on them getting over powering real quick normally but I can eat these.

      Thanks Beverley! It is definitely healthier than most ranch dressings, especially if you omit the mayo.
