Ranch Dip/Dressing


Being from Upstate New York, I grew up consuming a LOT of Buffalo wings, which were normally served with blue cheese dressing on the side. Flash forward many years… and now, when I do eat wings, I usually dip them in Ranch. However, I don’t keep Ranch dressing in my fridge, so decided to make my own the other day since I recently made some delicious drumettes. I’m no Ranch dressing connoisseur, but I think this easy recipe is incredibly tasty!

The consistency of this is more of a dip, so if you desire it thinner to use on a salad, eliminate the sour cream.

Homemade Ranch Dressing

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1/8 tsp. white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. dried chives
  • 1/4 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • Generous pinch of seasoned salt
  • Generous pinch of ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Combine mayo & buttermilk in a bowl.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and whisk well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.

* Tip: If you’re a blue cheese person, simply add 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire to the recipe and some gorgonzola, and voila… blue cheese dressing!
