Salad dressings: Ranchy blue

Linda Mericle


This is a culmination of several recipes I have tweaked over the years. After sitting for a day, it is even better than the day of. It generally lasts a couple of weeks in the fridge, depending on how fresh your ingredients are.

How to Make Salad dressings: Ranchy blue


  1. I just mix everything up in a mason jar and pop it into the fridge. The almonds, which really should be processed in a food processor or mini one, add crunch and an amazing salty flavor. But sometimes I just dont have any on hand and the dressing is still good. If you leave out the cheese, it is just Ranch dressing. Throw in some cheese and it becomes ranchy-blue!
