Ranch Dressing with no MSG?

My kid LOVES ranch. But there is no argument, the mainstream stuff is really not good for you. I'm looking for something that has the same texture and flavor as mainstream ranch (we buy Aldi or Shoprite Brand) but doesn't have MSG. I'm trying to eliminate it from my kids diets.

I'm allergic to MSG (hives and all, fun, fun, fun). We buy Nature's Promise (Stop & Shop organic brand) ranch dressing, because it doesn't have MSG. Alternatively you can make your own. There's a recipe on The Pioneer Woman's blog here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/06/homemade-ranch-dressing/.

Re: Ranch Dressing with no MSG?

I will second the Pioneer Woman recipe as I think the flavor is really great. We do not eat a lot of ranch here so I make a half or quarter batch and it pretty much is exactly what we need for a couple salads or maybe to dip wings in.

ETA: I think Newman's Own does not have MSG. I remember buying it one time and I don't think I would have purchased it if it did. But, we don't eat a lot of ranch so I don't know if I would have a great memory for it.

We have a brand called Brianna's that is really good! Our grocery store also has a store (generic) organic/natural brand. The ones with MSG make my son's face all rashy.
