Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to let your ranch dressing sit in the fridge for about 20 minutes after making it. This will help thicken it up. 
  • If you find yourself without buttermilk in the fridge you can make your own (instructions below). 
  • If you are trying to make a dressing with fewer calories you can swap out the sour cream for Greek Yogurt. 
  • This recipe is super versatile. Not only is it a great dressing, but it makes a great dip as well. If you are making a dip just add less buttermilk to keep it thicker. The buttermilk is the key in thinning (use more buttermilk) the dressing or thickening it (use less buttermilk).
  • For the best flavor use full-fat sour cream and mayonnaise. 

Storage

Store your homemade ranch dressing in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week.
