You absolutely won’t believe how easy it is to make a creamy ranch dressing at home. Our version adds lemon juice, hot sauce, and fresh parsley to brighten the flavors. This recipe is adaptable for different eating lifestyles. For Paleo, use a compliant mayo and swap the sour cream for full-fat canned coconut milk. To make this Keto-friendly, use almond milk or a slightly watered down heavy cream to thin the dressing. Whether drizzled on a salad or served in a bowl alongside fresh veggies or Buffalo wings, this super easy homemade ranch dressing is going to become a staple in your kitchen.
