Ranch is a staple around here, and in fact it gets its own spot on the food triangle. Because Ranch is so important we have become Ranch Snobs. We spend a lot of money on that white creamy goodness because we want the good stuff. I have always preferred homemade dressings to store bought but have also bought plenty of bottles in my day.
This ranch recipe is AMAZING and has quickly become our new favorite. We used LIGHT buttermilk, LIGHT sour cream, and LIGHT mayo and it was STILL really good. It didn’t taste at all like the lite version in the stores. So much yummy ranch flavor!
Parsley Flakes 1 1/2 C
Garlic Salt ½ C
Kosher Salt 2 Tbsp
Granulated Garlic ¼ C
Granulated Onion 3/4 C
Dill Weed 2 Tbsp
1. Combine all ingredients, store in an airtight container. Makes about 3 ½ cups of dry mix
2. To Make Dressing, whisk together 2 Tbsp of mix with 2 Cups each of mayonnaise and buttermilk 1 ½ Cups sour cream, & 1 tsp Lemon Juice. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Makes 1 ¾ Quarts
UPDATE: I have been asked a lot how long the ranch is good for, and I would go off of the expiration date of the buttermilk. I have also been asked quite a bit for a smaller portion recipe. You asked and I listened so here you go, Smaller Portion Recipe for Best Homemade Ranch.
