Just add sour cream. The Hidden Valley story. Over fifty years ago, a Nebraska-born entrepreneur settled in Santa Barbara, CA, where he founded the Hidden Valley Ranch. Guests came to enjoy the great outdoors and wholesome home-cooked meals. They were especially fond of the salads topped with a buttermilk dressing, lovingly prepared by the proprietor using fresh herbs and spices - the Original Ranch Dressing. Today, you can still enjoy this same great taste. Gluten free. Visit HiddenValley.com for more great recipes! Gluten-free. No preservatives. Made in the USA.
