Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing from the store kind of grosses me out, but homemade ranch…I could eat it with a spoon! I’ve tried several good recipes, but most of them call for fresh herbs, or fresh lemon juice.  I love this recipe because it uses ingredients I always have on hand, and it’s delicious!  If you’re trying to get your kids to eat more veggies, try serving it with this!



  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or regular milk
  • 3/4 – 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1-3 teaspoons white vinegar


Whisk all ingredients together, except for the vinegar (or just dump everything in a big mason jar, put the lid on, and shake the heck out of it). Start adding the vinegar a teaspoon at a time, tasting as you go. Add additional salt & pepper if needed. Store in the fridge (it stays good at least a week or 2!).
