Homemade Ranch Dressing

Homemade Ranch Dressing | Simply Scrumptious by SarahHi everyone!  Tonight I want to share with you a recipe for ranch dressing.  Ranch dressing is my Dad’s favorite salad dressing and I have tried time and again to make it for him, but not with the best results.  I was stupidly trying to make ranch dressing without buttermilk, because I don’t normally keep it in my kitchen and my Mom doesn’t keep it in hers either.  I tried sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, yogurt, and various other combinations of ingredients, with only so-so results.

I finally broke down, and tried a recipe with buttermilk, and I am telling you; it is the key ingredient!  Totally worth it, and I have found many ways to use the leftovers, such as making buttermilk biscuits!  This ranch dressing was really yummy, and a hit with my Dad!  Here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup of 1% buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced fresh chives
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp of dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of salt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk together until the ingredients are well combined.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight for the best results.  This gives some time for the flavors of the spices to come out.  Serve over a salad, or with fresh veggies as dip!

Makes approximately 16 servings.  WW P+: 2 points per 1/8 of a cup (1 serving)
