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.

  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.
