Ranch Dressing

Donna Graffagnino


This is much better than store bought and as good as restaurants who make their own house ranch. It's my go-to ranch dressing which is much less expensive than store bought, and I know exactly what is in it.
This can easily be turned into Buttermilk Ranch by adding a little buttermilk.
