I made this out of need one day for a potluck. I am not a fan of Italian dressing. Ranch dressing was supposed to be mixed with sour cream and I thought it would be too runny. Tried it with mayo and it was a hit and just what I needed. Just added the ham and cheese and it was an instant hit. It is not very healthy, but it was devoured within minutes at the potluck.
