Ranch Dressing II Recipe
This is for those who prefer herbs rather than spice. Creamy and delicious - it is the perfect accompaniment to chicken, ham or crisp salad greens.
Ranch dressing is quick and easy to make at home. Just combine mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, and herbs for a thick and creamy salad topping.
Instead of purchasing bottled ranch dressing at the store, spend a few minutes mixing up this creamy homemade version with mayonnaise and buttermilk--your salads will thank you!

I replaced half the mayo for buttermilk. Sour cream was fatfree. So far, so yum! :) Note4Me: Maybe try this one, too ... http://happymoneysaver.com/diy-copycat-homemade-hidden-valley-ranch-mix/ ...1/2c dry buttermilk pdr;1T&1t dr parsley,1 dr dill weed;1t onion p;1t dried onion flakes;1t salt;1t garlic powder;2T pieces organic dried portabella mush;1t garlic salt;1/4t ground pepper;1/2t sugar - actually spice ratio.

I have been on a three-year quest to find the perfect ranch dressing recipe, and I finally found it! This is great! I did make modifications to suit our Texas taste buds (ranch dressing is a condiment here!), but this is a wonderful start. My modifications are to 1) Change the mayo/sour cream/buttermilk to 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 2)Increase the garlic to 1/2 tsp., and 3) Add 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil (for consistency). Thanks Dawnia!
Simple recipe with mayonnaise, ketchup, and sweet pickle relish. I made this in restaurant quantities and broke it down. You may have to play with it to suit your tastes.
I was looking for a home made ranch dressing recipe and this fit my needs perfectly. I used low-fat buttermilk in place the the sour cream. I didn't have garlic powder, so substituted garlic salt and omitted the salt. I whipped this up in my food processor since I had it out. I think that next time I may try to make this with home-made mayonnaise so that I can totally get rid of any preservatives in the mayo. Thanks Dawnia for sharing!
I use buttermilk instead of sour cream and use fresh parsley and chives from my garden, a dill seasoning blend instead of dill, garlic and onion powder because the blend has all three. My husband was never a big ranch dressing fan until I started making this recipe. I've used it on salads and as the "sauce" for pasta salad with fresh cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Delicious!
