Ranch Mixed Nuts

Ranch Mixed Nuts

Do you know any of those people who say "I just don't snack"? SERIOUSLY?! Few things make me happier than a snack and few things make me more livid than someone who doesn't need to snack. I need to snack. It gets me through a busy work day, long car trips and pretty much most TV binges.

In general, I prefer a savory snack over a sweet one, but I have such a hard time finding a satisfying savory snack that isn't a bag of potato chips (which I do let myself indulge in from time to time). So this is the perfect, satisfying savory snack.
