Outback Steakhouse Ranch Dressing

Raven Higheagle


I love to eat at Outback. Well, most of the time I get it to go and bring it home to eat, but still I love it. My favorite is their Filet Foccacia sandwich with sweet potato fries, which I dip in Honey Mustard. So delicious! I also especially love their salad and I'm completely head over heels for their ranch dressing. The other day when I was brainstorming what to make for dinner, I decided I'd have my favorite homemade french dip sandwiches AND try to replicate Outback’s ranch dressing for my salad!! Fakeout takeout at home!
