Once you realize how easy it is to make your own ranch dressing you'll wonder why you haven't tried it before. Not only is this more healthy than the commercial version, it's far less expensive.
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (real, not Miracle Whip)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sour cream, full fat
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, or fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon dried mustard
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground cracked pepper
  • 2 teaspoon fresh dill, minced
  1. In a small bowl or jar, whisk the buttermilk mayonnaise and sour cream together until smooth.
  2. Add the garlic, vinegar, mustard, pepper and dill, and whisk until smooth.
  3. Season to taste. I don't add salt because of the mayonnaise. Serve immediately.
  4. Keep unused portion refrigerated.
