Kefir Cheese Ranch Dip

Labels: , , ,

I eat kefir milk and cheese as often as I can because of the healthy benefits I get. I make kefir cheese dip regularly for dipping potato crisps as well as fried greens and raw vegetables. Mildly tart kefir cheese tastes better IMHO than sour cream and goes well with Ranch dressing powder.

Kefir Cheese Ranch Dip

2 cups kefir cheese, homemade* or store-bought
2 tablespoons Ranch dressing powder
1 teaspoon sea salt, optional
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2 tablespoons chopped scallions, divided
½ cup crisp-fried chopped bacon
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together kefir cheese and dressing powder until smooth.
  • Taste and add salt if needed. Stir in half of cheese and 1 tablespoon scallions. 
  • Transfer kefir cheese mixture in a 5 x 5 inch glass dish. Smooth top. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese, followed by bacon, and the remaining 1 tablespoon chopped scallions.
  • Cover and chill for at least 2 hours for the flavors to meld. Serve with chips and raw vegetables. It's also good with meatballs.
