Ranch Dressing

ranch_dressing Growing up Ranch Dressing was the only salad dressing in the house. Occasionally some Italian dressing would appear but only if pasta salad was in the near future.

The only time I ever had “fresh” Ranch Dressing was out at a restaurant someplace.

I never tried making my own until a couple of years ago.  I was using lemon juice, coconut milk, and Greek yogurt to make the dressing.

It was a fail each and every time.  It just didn’t have the right tanginess that I was looking for.

Since we started getting milk again, I decided I was going to have another go at making Ranch Dressing.

While it’s not perfect just yet, I’m on the right track!

My basic recipe includes:

  • Whole Milk
  • Sour Cream
  • Green Onions
  • Garlic Clove
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Lots of Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Ranch DressingEverything gets combined in a blender and then drizzled over a salad.

It’s a work in progress for sure but I’m close to perfection.  Even though it isn’t perfect, it is tasty and we have no problems going through a jar of it.

    • Hi Joe, Thanks for stopping by! Right now since I’m still playing around with the recipe I don’t have any exact measurements. I’ve been using about a 1/2C of sour cream and 1/4C of milk and adjusting the seasonings from there. I really like a strong onion flavor so I use about two green onions per batch. I hope that helps somewhat!
