Ranch Dressing

If you love Ranch Dressing, this is the recipe you want. Need. Must have! It is simple to make, doesn't call for anything you probably don't already have in your kitchen, and tastes better than any Ranch Dressing you could ever buy in a bottle. Oh, and it costs a whole lot less than the bottled variety, too. After making this you'll never want to go back to the stuff from the store.
Simple ingredients.
black pepper, parsley flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt,
vinegar, mayonnaise, milk, sour cream (that didn't make the picture)

Put the milk and vinegar in the bowl first. Then add the rest.

Whisk it all together.
5 minutes to delicious, perfect dressing.

Smooth. Creamy. Great on everything.

Ranch Dressing
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

In a small bowl, combine milk and vinegar. Let sit for about a minute to let the vinegar react with the fat in the milk. Add remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth and creamy. Makes about 2 1/2 cups dressing.

Remember these Sweet Pork Tacos?
A perfect way to get this Ranch Dressing into your mouth!

Tomorrow I will post a salad recipe.
Another perfect way to eat this dressing!


  1. Looks easy enough for me to make! Will have to try it!

  2. You'll love it Melinda. It's very much like the kind you can get at the BYU Creamery. Sooooooo gooooood!

  3. I made this last night because it sounded so good. I have tried a LOT of homemade Ranch variations, and every one of them have been "off".

    This one was perfect. Although I did use a couple fat free/lowfat ingredients in place of the full fat, because I'm really trying to find a lowfat recipe.

    I used lowfat mayo in place of full fat (I like the Hellmann's brand)
    I used skim milk in place of the whole milk
    I used nonfat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream

    Everything else I kept the same, and all the measurements are the same. My kids keep trying to get into it! They are actually *asking* to eat carrots with it.

    It's now going to become my full-time recipe. I will say that it's a little thinner than ranch out of the bottle.. but I think that's probably due to using the skim milk instead of whole. But I don't mind that in the least.

    Thank you!

  4. Thank you, Devoted Wifey! I am so glad you love this dressing the way we do! I love your low-fat version. It really does taste just as good. =)
