Game Day Provisions: Fresh Garlic-Lime Ranch


Game Day Provisions

The Technique

Fresh Garlic-Lime Ranch

Shortcut sauces are the name of the game. Garlic-Lime Ranch steps in as a buffalo wing accompaniment, sandwich spread or a chip dipper making this multi-purpose crowd pleaser a game day MVP. The sauce starts with a humble package of dressing mix but fresh garlic, lime zest & juice create a stir with loads of bold flavor. Buttermilk lends a bit of twang resulting in a well rounded No. 1 contender. Don’t pass this fan-favorite by when it comes to delicious tailgating morsels. Be certain to have plenty on hand for a winning party.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lime zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to sauces. Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
