Ranch Dressing

Ranch Dressing

At one time or another, we've all fallen into the bottled salad dressing rut and wished for a fresh flavor to drizzle on our greens or toss with our tomatoes. Why not make your own dressing? I always do! It's easy, tasty, and inexpensive, too!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients; whisk until smooth. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Makes about 1 cup dressing.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I use Greek yogurt rather than buttermilk. If you prefer buttermilk, you are able to buy powdered buttermilk, and add water to it. Keep the powdered milk stored in the fridge. I never added vinegar and oil to it will need to try this.

Yum! I did have to add a little extra milk, maybe a tablespoon or so (I didn't measure) just to get it out of the container easier, but will be making this again for sure! For those of you without buttermilk, like I was, just mix milk with white vinegar. 1 cup of milk to 1 teaspoon of vinegar, so for this recipe I did 1/4c milk with 1/4t vinegar and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes and then added the rest of the ingredients. YUM!

This ranch dressing is GREAT! However I found that Fresh Dill didn't work for me so I used dried dill, and that was a lot better, as far as taste. I also found that this recipe comes out kinda thick so, I added about 1tablespoon of milk or so, just to make it a little thinner. But, overall, a wonderful recipe for dip and as a dressing!!! I will never buy bottled ranch again, when I can make my own at home! Thanks Mr. Food!

What do you do if you don't have buttermilk?

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
