Baked Zucchini Sticks with My Own Ranch Dressing

Ingredients (Serves 4)
    For the Zucchini
    4 zucchini, cut crosswise in half, then cut in six pieces lengthwise
    2 cups Panko bread crumbs
    1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon garlic salt...

    1 teaspoon oregano
    2 eggs

    For the Ranch Dressing
    2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed & Minced or put through a Garlic Press
    1 teaspoon Salt
    3 Tablespoons of Finely Minced Flat Leaf Parsley
    1 Cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
    1/2 Cup Sour Cream
    6 Tablespoons Buttermilk
    1 1/2 teaspoons Vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
    2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Dill
    1/2 teaspoon Paprika
    1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano


    For the Zucchini
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper...or sprayed well with cooking oil. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and oregano. Beat eggs in shallow bowl until frothy. Dip zucchini sticks in egg, then coat in crumb at a time. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until tender crisp and golden in colour. Serves 6 can serve these with a Marinara Sauce or Ranch Dressing, but I make my own Ranch Dressing. And, oh, is it DE-licious!!

    For the Ranch Dressing
    Combine all of the ingredients together, using more or less Buttermilk than the recipe calls for, to get the dressing the consistency you desire. Remember, you will be dipping Hot Zucchini Sticks into it, so you may want to leave it pretty thick, like I did. Chill the dip while you make the Zucchini Sticks.
    I use this dip for veggies and even for potato chips! It's always a hit!
