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.

How to Make Ranch Dressing


  1. Whisk all ingredients together until well blended.

    Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before using. The longer the better.

    Recipe can be multiplied.
  2. Tips: Make a larger batch of dried seasonings and store in air tight container or mason jar. When ready to make dressing just use 3 1/2 teaspoons per 1 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream.

    For a thinner dressing add 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk, or as much as needed to reach the desired consistency.
    Keep refrigerated.
