This recipe for HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING is so good that my husband said THAT’S what ranch is supposed to taste like! It’s perfect for crudite or topping your favorite salad!
We love ranch dressing! I think it was the first dressing that I remember actually liking. It was so good that it was the only reason I’d eat a salad growing up. When I moved to Texas I was introduced to the most amazing lunch of Hawaiian Pizza dipped in ranch dressing, and washed down with a Dr. Pepper. I introduced my youngest monkey to pizza with ranch and now that’s the only way he’ll eat it. My oldest is a SUPER picky eater and I learned last summer that with the magic of ranch I can get him to eat bell pepper!!!!!! It’s truly a miracle food. I’ve made lots of ranch in the past like Jalapeno Ranch and Avocado Ranch but I haven’t made just a plain, perfectly amazing, filled with magic Homemade Ranch Dressing. That is not until the other day!!!
I gave my husband a quick taste when I first mixed it up and his eyes got big and he said THAT’S what ranch is supposed to taste like! What have I been eating all these years! I have to agree with his glowing review, it tastes really, really great! What’s even better is how easy it was to make. I love finding new uses for the buttermilk I bring home to make pancakes or cakes like my Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Bundt Cake! As soon as I made it knew I needed to make a classic cobb salad. My dreams are filled with huge cobb salads and Homemade Ranch Dressing drizzled over!
Hurry and make this dressing and fill your dreams with magic ranch!
