Do you guys remember those nights in college where you didn’t have a lot of food left in the fridge, but condiments were always well stocked? You’d end up attempting to make a new food group out of it – some kind of crazy sauce that was most likely Hidden Valley ranch mixed with ketchup and some kind of spicy sauce. And this combination would be irresistible on all types of pizza at approximately 3am. This dressing is pretty much that sauce. It’s basically my two favorite things – honey mustard and ranch dressing all combined into one. And I have Chrissy Teigen to thank for it.

I gotta say, I’ve been wondering what the Chrissy Teigen craze was about for a long time. Who is this model who seems to like cooking (or eating) and obnoxiously shows up in about half of my Today Show alerts? As I write my own cookbook, I’ve been more observant of how my favorites have structured theirs. What do they write about? How did they choose these recipes? What makes this book unique to them?

In an effort to branch out and see what others have written besides my beloved Ina Garten, I ordered Chrissy’s Cravings cookbook from Amazon. I’ll admit that there’s not a ton of things you can make that follow migraine diet restrictions, but her captions are hilarious and the recipes have tons of personality. Apparently the salad that this dressing comes on gets her more Instagram likes than her boobs…which is really saying something.

Migraine Diet Safe Buttermilk

My favorite migraine diet tip is making faux buttermilk at home. You basically mix together 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and allow it to sit for 5 minutes until thick. I’ve used this many times for pancakes and it works like a charm. And if you are dairy free you can definitely substitute hemp or oat milk. The only difference I find is that it doesn’t get as thick as regular milk.

Mayo & Dijon Options

For store-bought mayo I use Primal Kitchen or Sir Kensington’s Organic. There’s also this recipe for homemade if you can’t find either or prefer to make your own. My favorite dijon is Annie’s Naturals.

What Can I Put This On?

This dressing sort of reminds me of Dorito’s Cool Ranch flavor which is most definitely not allowed on a migraine diet (sad, I know). I like to use it on my lunch salads with pulled naked chicken, cucumber, corn, black beans, and some crunched up tortilla chips. It would also be awesome as a vegetable dip for snacks and parties.

I know it sounds weird, but I promise you’ll love it. And if you don’t, you can blame Chrissy Teigen.
