I doubled this and it was all gone in one sitting! There were only 7 of us eating. This is a keeper.

What would be a healthier dressing to use for this? I'll bet the ranch is yummy! I just didn't know if there might be another option? Would Italian make it still as good?

Shelley said...

mrodgers25- Maybe you could find a healthier ranch at whole foods or trader joes? Italian probably has as much fat/oil as ranch, if not more, and it would really change the way the salad tastes. It would probably be good, but it would taste more like a marinated salad.

Let us know what you end up using! :)

Can this be made 24 hrs in advance?

Shelley said...

Linda- Yes, it can. Just give it a stir before serving :)

I made this using frozen bell peppers and the Garlic Ranch from Kroger (while omitting the garlic called for in the recipe) and it was AMAZING, and best of all, unbeliveably simple. I made it a day ahead, allowing all of the flavors to marry into a GREAT cold dip. I am going to make it again for my daughter's first birthday party Saturday and will be using it for those hot football game days in the Grove this fall. Thank you so much for sharing!
