Every time I have tried a fat free ranch dressing, the taste is just different, the consistency is wrong, it just turns me off and ruins the experience. Not so with Hidden Valley! In fact, Hidden Valley's Fat Free Ranch dressing is better than most other brands regular ranch dressings! I love it for dipping, dressing salads, and even in pasta salads. I recommend you try this dressing if you are counting calories but not sacrificing flavor.
