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.
