Rockin' Ranch Slaw

You know how I won First Place in the Lindsay Olive Cooking Contest at the Fair last month well I was originally going to enter the Hidden Valley Ranch sponsored contest. I won that contest a few years back with Artichoke Squares, a yummy quiche like dish. This was my tester recipe for this year's contest. It's yummy. It's an adaptation on my Turkey Slaw recipe if you've made that one before you'll love this. It's a great one for potlucks. A complete meal full of great stuff and weight loss surgery friendly of course...


Shelly's Rockin' Ranch Slaw

1/4 lb. (about 4 slices) Smoked Turkey Breast, diced
8 oz. Broccoli Slaw Mix
8 oz. Cabbage Slaw Mix
1 (15 oz.) can Black Beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup Cooked Corn Kernels (Fresh, Frozen or Canned)
1 Bell Pepper (I use 1/2 red, 1/2 yellow), diced
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 Small Red Onion, diced fine
2 Green Onions, diced
1/4 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds, toasted

Dressing
2 Tablespoons Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
1/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon BBQ Sauce
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar

Toast almonds in a dry pan for a few minutes. Set aside to cool and crisp up. In a large bowl combine turkey, slaw mixes, beans, corn, pepper, onions, cheese, raisins and almonds. Mix Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix, mayonnaise, yogurt, BBQ sauce, and vinegar together. Pour the dressing over the slaw mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour before serving.

OMG, this is super delicious! It makes a large batch, but I have no doubt it'll be gobbled up at a group picnic I'm heading to this morning. LOVE IT!!!!

Hi Michelle,

They are having the Hidden Valley Ranch contest here in Bakersfield at The Kern County Fair. Our fair is at the end of September. If you go to www.kerncountyfair.com and check out the still entry catalogue, maybe you could still enter the contest here. Your recipe looks delicious.

Take Care
Leslie
