Now, since when have I ever backed down from a challenge?
(That would be… never.)
When the good folks at Hidden Valley asked me – and 15 of Canada’s top food bloggers/recipe junkies – to create a delicious recipe that made eating veggies more fun for the whole family (and incorporating Ranch dressing, of course) – I was initially stumped. Previously, I had only used Hidden Valley Ranch dressing as a dip for vegetables, and was unsure how to adapt the flavours to a main course. Adding to my dilemma, Hidden Valley recently introduced two YUMMY new versions: Cheesy and Spicy. While they are simply divine as a dip, I once again questioned my ability to make them the star of the show.
So, I decided to stick with the Original Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, and settled on a dish that embodies the spirit of fresh summer produce; the comfort of warm nights on the patio; and the deliciousness of spicy, charred salmon straight from the grill.
