Ranch dressing has become one of the most beloved condiments on the planet over the last decade.

So how do you make your very own ranch dressing right in the comfort of your own kitchen? We are here to answer that for you and provide you with the bomb dot com of ranch recipes. It’s simple, it’s tasty and you won’t ever think about buying store bought ranch again!


Creamy Base: This is typically a combination of mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk. Buttermilk adds a nice tang, but you can use regular milk in a pinch.

Herbs and Seasonings: Fresh herbs like dill, parsley, and chives are ideal, but dried herbs work too. Garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper are essential for that classic ranch flavor.


  1. Whisk together the creamy base ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Add the herbs and seasonings, whisking them in until well combined.
  3. Adjust the flavor to your preference. You might want to add more lemon juice for tang, buttermilk for thinness, or more herbs for a stronger flavor.

Tips for the Best Flavor:

  • Fresh Herbs: If you can, use fresh herbs for the most flavorful ranch dressing.
  • Let it Chill: The flavors meld better after the dressing chills for at least 30 minutes, so make it ahead if you can.
  • Customize It: Don’t be afraid to experiment! You can add a pinch of cayenne pepper for a kick, or try other herbs like oregano or chives.
