If you’re looking for the best restaurant quality ranch dressing recipe, you’ll love this healthier homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. It’s easy to make with fresh herbs or my dry spice mix.
When we spent a year in Uruguay, we discovered many of our staple condiments weren’t even a thing. One of the things we discovered wasn’t available was Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.
I’d eaten ranch dressing on my salads since I was a kid, so I decided to learn to make buttermilk ranch dressing myself. It tastes immensely better, and this recipe is restaurant quality!
You can make it up fresh when you want to use it. As long as you use fresh herbs, it’s ready to eat in an hour.
To substitute dried herbs, use 3 tablespoons of my homemade ranch seasoning blend. If you use dried herbs, it’s best to let it sit overnight so the dried herbs can fully re-hydrate.
Want to make a ranch dip instead of ranch dressing? Simply swap the sour cream for buttermilk. It goes great with fresh veggies and chips.
The Buttermilk Ranch Dressing will last in the refrigerator for as long as the earliest expiration date on the buttermilk or mayonnaise. So make sure to use the very freshest ingredients!
