How to make Homemade Ranch Dressing

Preparation Time: – 15 min.

Servings: – 8-10

Diet: – Vegetarian

Category: – Salad Dressing

Method: – By Hand

Cuisine: – American


1 Minced Clove Garlic

¼ to ½ Cup Buttermilk depend on your desired consistency

1 Cup Mayonnaise

¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

¼ Cup Minced Parsley

1 Tablespoon Minced Chives

2 Tablespoon Minced Dill

½ Teaspoon White Vinegar

½ Cup Sour Cream

¼ Teaspoon Paprika

Dash Hot Sauce as per taste

Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice, to taste


In a bowl, mix together the sour cream, ¼ cup buttermilk, mayonnaise, fresh herbs, garlic, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, salt and around 5 twists of black pepper. Stir until it is all combined.

Taste it and see if you want to add more buttermilk to make it thinner or more drizzly. You could also add up to 1 teaspoon more lemon juice if you would like more zing. If you want it to be spicier then add more pepper.

This dressing tastes great immediately but even better after 10 minutes. Use as much as you desire and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days covered.

When kept in the refrigerator, this simple homemade dressing keeps for five to seven days. I wish it lasted longer, but the longer the dressing sits, the more flavor those fresh herbs tend to lose.

Different Variant of Ranch Dressing

Discover the Unique Flavors of Avocado Ranch, Chipotle Ranch, Sriracha Ranch, Parmesan Peppercorn Ranch and Cilantro Lime Ranch

Discovering new flavors and experimenting with different ingredients can be an exciting way to spice up a regular dinner or lunch. Avocado ranch, chipotle ranch, sriracha ranch, parmesan peppercorn ranch and cilantro lime ranch are five delicious variations of the classic ranch dressing that will add a unique flavor to your meals.

Avocado ranch is made by adding one small mashed avocado to the classic recipe. This variation adds a creamy texture and a mild flavor to the ranch that pairs perfectly with salads or tacos. Chipotle ranch is made by adding one finely minced chipotle pepper and one tablespoon of adobo sauce to the classic recipe. This version has a slightly spicy kick that will give your dishes an extra zing. Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be found in most grocery stores in the Hispanic section.

Sriracha ranch is also made by adding 1-2 tablespoons of Sriracha sauce or more or less depending on personal preference. This variation packs a punch with its garlicky flavor that makes it perfect for sandwiches and burgers. Parmesan peppercorn ranch is made by adding ¼ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese, 1 ½ teaspoon fresh ground tricolor pepper, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce to the classic recipe. This version has a savory flavor that enhances any dish from pizza to roasted vegetables.

Finally, cilantro lime ranch is made by substituting cilantro or parsley and lime juice for lemon juice in the classic recipe.
