Homemade Ranch Dressing

Hey, y'all!

I know that in general there's not a lot of gluten in ranch. What there is, however, is a ton of sugar, salt and fat in the bottled kind.

I found out how easy it is to do homemade, and never looked back.

You need:

2 cups buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp dried chives
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dillweed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Mix together Mayo and buttermilk

Add in all your spices and whisk well.

This is important. Taste! I always end up adding more salt or pepper or dill, depending very much on the fat content of the buttermilk or the brand of mayo. Homemade mayo requires way more dill, chives and parsley, and organic mayo needs more salt and pepper than say, Helmann's

We store ours in a glass bottle in the fridge, but you can also store it in a covered bowl. This dressing will last almost two weeks depending on the freshness of your buttermilk.

Allergens: milk, egg
