After playing around with it, finally this homemade ranch dressing recipe tastes great, and it’s much more delicious than the organic powdered ranch dressing packet that I’ve used in the past. It even tastes like “Hidden Valley Ranch” which is all we used to eat around here. It’s a bonus when healthy real food can taste the way our twisted palates expect from our days of eating junk.
Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe
- 3/4 cup this mayo OR my simple 5-minute homemade mayo (this makes it more yellow depending on your ratio of mayo to sour cream)
- 1/2 cup sour cream, pastured sour cream is best for the most nutrients (or even better, use dairy kefir to get even more healthy bacteria in there, note that this will make it a bit more thin though)
- 1/4 teaspoon organic (if possible) fresh or dried parsley and/or oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon organic garlic powder and/or onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Mix together well. If it’s too thick for salad dressing, add a little milk. If it’s too thin for a ranch veggie dip, add a little more sour cream, and more herbs/spices as needed when you taste-test to get it just right.
