Never Buy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Again
Making Buttermilk Ranch dressing is so easy anyone can do it, you may never want to buy it again…
What’s Your Favorite Dressing?
Do you have a favorite? My Favorite is Ranch, when I was growing up Thousand Island was a regular at our house until Ranch came along. My Mom would mix mayo, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper, that was her Thousand Island recipe.
When Ranch came on the scene, we would buy the powder mixes, and add our own mayo and buttermilk. I wish I knew then how easy it was to make from scratch…
Buttermilk Ranch dressing is a combination of, mayo, sour cream, buttermilk, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and chopped parsley. You can make it with fresh herbs and spices or dried. If you like dill like I do you can substitute dill for the parsley, or any other herb that you like. Spaghetti Factory Restaurant serves a Pesto Ranch, which I love…
Finely grated Parmesan cheese would also be a great addition,,, Or what about a delicious blue cheese?
Nothing is set in stone, want less fat use low-fat mayonnaise, or add more sour cream and less mayo, change it up suit your tastes or needs.
Thick & Thin
If you would like the dressing to be more of a dip, remove 1/4 cup of buttermilk. If you would like it thinner add 1/4 cup more buttermilk.
