Buffalo-Ranch Broccoli


You know how buffalo chicken wings/tenders/etc. are always served with ranch and veggies for dipping? Yeah, this isn’t that. It’s that flipped! Instead we’re now featuring the veggies with ranch and buffalo sauce for dipping! This may not only be the perfect (healthy-ish) snack for your Final Four or Finals party, but it’s also a fun idea for April Fools Day. Wink wink.


  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle ranch salad dressing (such as Hidden Valley® Original Ranch®)

  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)

  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot®)

  • 2 heads of broccoli

  • Ranch packet

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with olive oil, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper and 1 packet of ranch seasoning. Spread the broccoli in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

3. Bake until florets are tender enough to pierce with a fork and the edges are browning, about 15 minutes.
