Make the best Ranch you will ever taste with this Dry Mix Ranch Dressing Recipe. Below is the complete recipe tutorial!
In our house, Ranch is its own food group, and I have to admit that I am a 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.
There is no way that I am not the only ranch snob in this world, so below is the BEST ranch recipe you will ever try!

Screw the lid on tight, and simply shake the jar to combine and mix all of the spices.
It's that easy. The dry ranch mix is complete. Makes about 3 ½ cups of dry mix

- 1 Tablespoon dry ranch mix
- 1 Cup mayonnaise
- 1 Cup buttermilk
- ¾ Cup sour cream
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
Best Homemade Ranch Dressing:
The dressing will thicken in the refrigerator. Makes 3 cups.
Add the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until nice and creamy.
Pour the 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 ½ cups of dry ranch mix? I also have a Smaller Portion Recipe for Best Homemade Ranch.

Our Baking Essential List:
- For baking casseroles, we use Glass Baking Dishes. I especially like the dishes with lids so leftovers can be transferred straight to the fridge.
- Silicone Kitchenware is my favorite because they don't scratch my cookware and is easy to clean!
- A Glass Cutting Board is a must to prepare all of those ingredients. We even keep ours on our counter at all times.
- This Knife Set will also become your favorite! They cut beautifully, and with the hollow design of the knife, food doesn't stick to the blade.
