Creamy, from-scratch Buttermilk Ranch Dressing to use for salads, pasta dishes, meats, sauces, veggies and so much more! Use anytime you need ranch dressing.
I’m a penny pincher who likes to eat tasty food that is easy to eat. I also love making my own condiments, dressings and dips. Mostly because I don’t want all the additives and preservatives in there. I just want pure, fresh food. I was always afraid to make my own Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Recipe From Scratch because I thought it would be too hard, or it wouldn’t taste good.
I really enjoy creating sauces and dips from scratch, it was time to find a ranch dressing recipe that I could make homemade too.
I have tried and tested a bunch of different recipes for homemade ranch dressing, and I’ve definitely had a few hits & misses. They are not all created equal. Not at all.
This one, is by far my favorite. It is easy, inexpensive and makes quite a bit.
Each time we make it, we add this or we add that, and often we add different herbs and seasonings.
This is my standard, go to, favorite Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Recipe. And it’s truly made from scratch which makes it all the better. I like knowing what I’m putting in it, and I love using fresh herbs and seasonings. In the recipe I specifically give you a measurement for minced onion, however you can substitute that for onion powder. The outcome is simply divine with the fresh onion but tastes delicious either way.
I’m also not sure we’ve ever made the same batch more than twice, simply because I don’t measure as well as I should, but the last batch we made, I did measure out what I used so I could share the Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing with you.
Serve with fresh veggies, a salad or like we do – with AWESOME fried veggies. Obviously this ranch dressing recipe can be used anywhere ranch dressing is called for, and trust me we do! I usually make a batch of it, and plan a few meals around it for the 2 weeks following so it gets used.
We use ranch dressing in so much, including pasta, casseroles, appetizers, veggies dishes and the old stand by, to dip stuff in. Lots of stuff. Like pizza, veggies, crackers, chicken, beef, etc. Yes, we might just be ranch dressing addicts.
