Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing

I love Ranch dressing, but I am not talking about those things in the bottle they call Ranch dressing.  I like the real thing.  Dressings are so easy to mix together and will keep in your fridge for a while, so I really don’t understand why people do not make their own dressing.  This is my standard recipe.  I make it up usually once a week and usually run out before the week is up.  Everyone in my family loves ranch dressing, so it’s hard to keep it around.


1 cup mayo

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tsp. chopped chives, fresh is better but if not using fresh you can use 1 tsp dried

1 tsp chopped parsley, same as chives if not using fresh use 1/2 tsp. dried

1 tsp dill, same as above

1 tsp. grated garlic, if not using fresh you can sub 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. grated onion, same as above

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp ground pepper

1/2 cup buttermilk


Mix all ingredients together and pour into container of choice.  Chill at least 2-4 hours before using.  Even better if you let it sit overnight.  Stores in fridge for up to 2 weeks, if you can keep it that long.
