The whole family, especially kids, can learn to love their veggies with these easy and convenient mix packets, for snacking you can feel good about. My kids are more than likely to eat their veggies if the can dip it in ranch dressing.

I decided to make a kid-friendly pasta salad using Hidden’s Valley’s new Greek yogurt salad dressing mix, veggies, pasta, ham, and cheese.

This Ham and Cheese Ranch Pasta Salad is perfect for your next neighborhood get-together or backyard hangout with the family. My daughter is my post picky eater and she LOVED this salad. You can always use turkey or chicken in place of the ham and feel free to change up the veggies used to whatever your family likes. I used tomatoes, broccoli, and red onion. Then I finished it off with some sliced black olives.

Since the dressing is made with Greek yogurt, I did find it thicker than how I usually like my ranch dressing. So, I just added extra milk until it was the consistency that I prefer.

Which of your favorite recipes could use a new twist with this new dressing or dip?

With its wide range of products, Hidden Valley is a simple twist that can transform your standard dishes into something new and delicious. For easy recipes and quick meal time fixes, visit hiddenvalley.com.
