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 delicious in salads , even I first had it in US , but now it is available here too . Homemade version would any day be better than the store bought one .

    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.

    Thanks for sharing Archana. Infact, I wanted to make it as I prefer homemade dressings to store bought

  • November 3, 2017 at 10:49 pm

    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 🙂 🙂

    Your homemade ranch dressing looks delicious, beats the store-bought stuff. For a low-calorie version, I prefer to use greek yoghurt in place of mayo and sour cream 🙂

    • ArchanaPotdar
      March 16, 2018 at 8:47 pm

      True but Greek yoghurt costs a bomb here so this is what I do.

  • March 16, 2018 at 8:15 am

    Home made dressing tastes so much better than the store bought ones in my opinion. Love Ranch dressing. Fabulous share!

    Oh wow, keeper recipe. now we are at a phase of subway style sandwiches at home… so this will be handy.

    • ArchanaPotdar
      March 20, 2018 at 7:32 pm

      I agree Seema was thinking of the subway sandwiches when I made it. Told the girls to get the bread they brought the subs so I made a salad with the dressing. No point in wasting a good sauce is there?

  • March 19, 2018 at 3:50 pm

    Nothing beats the taste and flavour of homemade salad dressings. I absolutely adore anything homemade and this just looks perfect with a nice creamy texture apt to coat a big bowl of veggies or salad leaves. With the summers at its peak, a cool bowl of salad is just what the season demands. Loved the recipe.

    • ArchanaPotdar
      March 20, 2018 at 7:30 pm

      The best part is it goes well as a dip and not to mention a sandwich sauce too. If there is any left that is.

  • March 19, 2018 at 11:44 pm
