Hi
We are a ranch dressing home. We like Annie's, but I need something that is more readily available. Does anyone know about Kraft, Hidden Valley, Wishbone, Newman's Own, etc...

Thanks!! :D

All of Newman's are gluten free EXCEPT, Family Italian. Kraft will always list. Hidden Valley in the bottle, at last check was not gluten free.

I do use hidden valley...here is their response....

All Hidden Valley products are labeled in accordance with the FDA food labeling requirements, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (Title II of Public Law 108-282) which requires foods to be labeled that contain the major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. Although most flavors of Hidden Valley dressing contain dairy, refer to the ingredients statement on the back of each Hidden Valley product to find this declaration

OK, but Hidden Valley has vinegar, not distilled vinegar. That's one thing I've always been unclear on. So I didn't think I could use it. I use Wishbone. The ingredients look OK to me and I've had no problems with it...

At least in Canada and the USA, "vinegar" when it appears as a single unqualified word in an ingredient list is safe. The only vinegar to worry about is malt vinegar, which is not distilled (all other types are), and it must be labelled as "malt vinegar." It cannot legally be listed as simply "vinegar" without the "malt" adjective.

I called Hidden Valley a couple of months ago, and the original ranch is gluten free, but some of the variations are not. I stick with the original ranch...it's so good! :D

...."at last check" may have been a year ago when there WAS concern about the Vinegar. I would love to use Hidden Vally. I always considered it the best.

assuming peanut free doesn't mean all-nut free, then you can make your own out of cashews. the recipe is on my As Promised, A Few Recipes thread, iirc. I personally prefer raspberry salad dressing. ;) or honey mustard.

I found this recipe that describes the dressing as an avacado-mayonaise style sauce, I guess the avacado acts as the cream/mayo

1 avocado
1/4 c. rice milk (or other acceptable milk)
2 dashes of paprika
1 T lemon juice
2 heaping teaspoons dijon mustard (would this be OK?)
one grind of salt
pepper


I also looked up the ingredients that would be found in ranch dressing and they are:
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 dash of paprika
---These added to 1/4 cup of mashed avacado and 1/4 rice milk (or whatever). I might have to try this, sounds much healthier than regular ranch!!!

I also found this website that's pretty cool: www.danandsally.com

If anyone tries either recipe let me know how it turns out!!
