  • I have two ranch dressing recipes on my blog. One is a ranch seasoning that is made with buttermilk and can be turned into a dressing or I have a Whole30 ranch recipe. 
  • This can be stored for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator safely in an air-tight Tupperware with a lid.
  • For the chicken, you can boil, bake or grill chicken breast, use canned or even a rotisserie chicken from the store.
