Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing is popular type of salad dressing here in America.  It boggles my mind that, on occasion, there are restaurants that don't serve it.   Every time I ask for it and they don't have it, the server tells me that they get asked that a lot.  You'd think the owner would get the hint and get the dressing!! 

Those who love ranch dressing also put it on sandwiches, wings, fries, any fried food you can name. I like mine on my Homemade Chicken Strips with Whiskey BBQ Sauce.  Some Midwesterners are even into dipping their pizza in it!  I, myself, never tried it and never will but to each their own.  

This homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing doesn't use a pre-measured packet and is so simple to make.  Your greatest patience will be practiced waiting as the dressing chills and the flavors mesh in the fridge.  I've given you spice and herb measurements as a guide.  Change it up to suit your taste, it's your dressing!

Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing                       Printable Recipe

5 Tablespoons mayonnaise (I prefer Hellman's Canola)
3 Tablespoons sour cream (can use lite)
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
2 dashes onion powder
2 dashes salt

Mix together.
You can use it right away but I prefer to make it in the morning and use it later in the day.

We use it the most on salads but will definitely dip a chicken strip (or two) into it!
