Low Carb Ranch & Russian Dressing Recipes

I’m making a couple of low carb salad dressings tonight. I got both recipes – Ranch and Russian dressings – from the Atkins site. 

Both require mayo, so I’ll be using mayo made with olive oil. I’ve made these before and they tend to be thicker than normal salad dressings, which make them a perfect dip for veggie snacks.

Since they are thicker, I highly recommend only using 1 tbsp for your salad. Just place your salad in a bowl, add 1 tbsp of the dressing and start mixing the dressing into the salad. I know the recipe calls for 2.5 tbsp per serving, but the truth is you really just need one tbsp if you mix it with the salad.
