Homemade Ranch Dressing

If you are an avid reader of our betterthanburgers, you know that we LOVE ranch dressing...we use it frequently and you have to admit it adds a little joy to every dish (*wink*). NOW you can make your very own, from scratch. I've always made mine with mayonnaise, milk and a package...not anymore. I will forever be making it from scratch. Its easy, its DANG GOOD and its cheaper than those little packets (have to save money where ever I can). This ranch is great on salads, chicken, burgers, wraps, sandwiches or as a dip for veggies...anything you would put the "Other STUFF" on... but this ranch is so much better.

Homemade Ranch Dressing

1 c. BEST FOODS mayonnaise (I use Western Family because I think it tastes just like Best Foods)
2/3 - 1 c. buttermilk (depends on how thick or thin you want the dressing)
1/2 c. sour cream
2 t. parsley flakes
1/2 t. pepper
1 1/2 t. salt
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. dried dill weed

Combine all ingredient in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Taste best if refrigerated for several hours so the flavors will "marry".



  1. Do you know how long it will last for in the fridge?

  2. It has lasted in my fridge for 3 weeks+ although you have to shake it up before you use it. Just make sure its in an air tight container and one without metal parts (such as a jar with a metal lid)...for some reason the metal tends to make it go rancid faster...
