Ranch is its own food group in this house, and I have to admit that I am a little bit of a ranch snob.
I love ranch and eat it on just about anything and everything but if the ranch isn’t good, I will pass on that salad or vegetable completely.
I am sure I am not the only ranch snob in this world, so I am going to share a recipe with you for the best homemade ranch recipe. And just so you know, I’m not kidding when I say this is the best ranch recipe!
Ingredients Used to Make the Best Homemade Ranch Recipe:
- Black Pepper ¼ C
- Parsley Flakes 1 1/2 C

I bought most of the spices in the bulk section of my grocery store. I love buying spices in bulk because they are so inexpensive. I spent about $2.50 for all of the spices. I love it!

How to Make the Best Homemade Ranch Dressing
The dressing will thicken in the refrigerator if you like a really thick ranch dressing. Makes 3 cups.
To make the ranch dressing, add the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until nice and creamy.
Pour the ranch dressing into a pourable bottle to store in the fridge. I use a Rubbermaid 1 quart bottle, it works perfectly.
For dinner the next night we made homemade Chicken Nuggets (another family favorite). This Ranch is the perfect dipping sauce and dinner was a huge success!
I have had several people ask about the expiration date. I would suggest going off the buttermilk expiration date. As for the dry mix, spices don’t go bad, but they can lose their potency.
Don’t need 3 1/2 cups of dry ranch mix? I also have a Smaller Portion Recipe for Best Homemade Ranch.
