I always consider Memorial Day to be the official start of summer.(Don’t get me started on the stifling, sub-tropical, record-breaking temperatures that we’ve had here…ALL MONTH! Just don't.) I like a bit of zing during the summertime, so created this Spicy Jalapeño Ranch Dressing to drizzle on salads, crudités, grilled corn on the cob, well, pretty much everything! I’m giving it to you today, because you’re going to need it for the recipe that I’m going to share with you tomorrow. I always find it best to make my own homemade Ranch Dressing from my special mix (see below), but if you prefer not to do that, and use the packet (I will not judge), you can just add the taco seasoning, and pickled jalapeño. You’re going to love this one, let me know how you use it.
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day, everyone!
