Crowdtap Sampling Party: Hidden Valley Ranch

 Through Crowdtap I received a Hidden Valley Ranch Sampling kit. The kit contained a t-shirt, salad dressing , plenty of samples, including the Hidden Valley Italian Dressing and dry mixes for making dip or salad dressing.

 Because I was busy at work, I decided to make the sampling a low key atmosphere with just some fresh veggies and individual salads with mozzarella balls to use the ranch dressing on. We talked about various recipes that people had for using Ranch Dressing, including some recipes mentioned in the recipe booklet that came with the kit. One person mentioned a pimento cheese, creme cheese and ranch dressing mix that is used as a spread for crackers and is a family favorite. Several other people mentioned that they had used ranch dressing in recipes ranging from burgers to potato side dishes.

 Everyone enjoyed snacking on the veggies and looking over the new Italian dressing from Hidden Valley. Several people's dip samples did not make it home and were eaten during lunch.
