HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING — It’s so easy to make your own Ranch dressing at home, and it’s so much better than the bottled stuff. Beware, this recipe may turn you into a Ranch dressing snob.
I have been meaning to post this recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing forever.
I make it all the time….let’s just say we have at least one child who dips everything in ranch dressing. And the homemade version is so easy, and so much better than the bottled stuff.
This isn’t the sort of recipe where you have to be super exact with measurements. If you want to use green onions in place of chives, go right ahead. If you like a little more garlic, or a little less dill, no problem.
Fat free mayo and sour cream work just as well as the full-fat versions, and Greek yogurt can be substituted for sour cream.
Honestly, I usually just throw in whatever fresh herbs I have available. Although dill is kind of a must for Ranch dressing, as far as I’m concerned.
Feel free to adjust the ingredients to suit your tastes. Add more or less buttermilk for a thicker or thinner consistency. Even regular milk will do the trick.
It’s also super easy to make a buttermilk substitute–just add a tablespoon or so of white vinegar to your measuring cup before you measure the milk, then let it stand for about 5 minutes.
I keep my Homemade Ranch Dressing in a covered mason jar in the refrigerator, where it will keep well for about a week–if it lasts that long.
Be sure to save this Homemade Ranch Dressing recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
