We go through so much ranch dressing at my house! From using on our salads, with chicken wings, or even as a dip with veggies, it is one thing I keep stocked in my refrigerator! Thankfully, this recipe makes enough ranch dressing that I’m not making it repeatedly throughout the week.

  1. This recipe sounds delicious! I make my own buttermilk Ranch and love it. I will definitely have to try yours too! It’s a completely personal choice, but I ALWAYS USE ORGANIC ingredients, when making my ranch. That way, you stay away from GMOs. Thank you so much for sharing this and I am going to be trying it, soon! 🙂

    1. Thanks for catching that for me, Cathy! I must have been on the computer late that night!
