Homemade Ranch Dressing

This homemade ranch dressing is similar to the bottled one in taste but better as I control what goes in. 

Ranch dressing is a best-selling salad dressing in the US and Canada. Not many people outside these two countries know about it.

Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing

My brother when he came on a holiday from the US first introduced us to the sauce. Ranch Dressing is made of buttermilk, salt, garlic, onion, mustard, herbs and spices and is mixed into a sauce based on mayonnaise or another oil emulsion.

In case you want a low-fat version, add sour cream and yoghurt.

Ranch dressing is commonly used as a dipping sauce for broccoli, carrots and celery. It is a dip too for chips and French fries and chicken wings, fried mushrooms, fried zucchini, fried pickles, jalapeno poppers, onion rings, chicken fingers, and hushpuppies. In addition, ranch dressing is used on pizza, pickles, baked potatoes, wraps, tacos, pretzels, and hamburgers.

Making Ranch Dressing is simple and I have copied it from here.

The cuisine of  USA is something that my girls like and hence my choice for BM this month.

The other salads with dressing I have tried in the past are Asian Slaw with Spicy Thai Vinaigrette,  Roasted Beetroot Salad with Balsamic Reduction.

Salads we love are in this Salad compilation.

    Ranch dressing is something I have been wanting to make it myself. Since some of the ingredients are not easy to come by, I haven’t yet made…yours look so good Arch.

    I personally LOVE ranch dressing ‘cos it’s creamy and delicious. My husband on the other hand absolutely hates it ‘cos it has buttermilk in it 🙁 So I rarely make it at home. Will have to make it sometime when he’s travelling 🙂 🙂
