Quick and with a nice kick Such an easy dressing to throw together - almost as easy as grabbing a bottle of unhealthy ranch. I substituted about 1/2 tblsp of olive oil for the water and added a bit more cayenne pepper since I like my food with kick. I will definitely be making this again! So easy to adjust to your preferences. Pros: Easy
