Are you searching for a restaurant style ranch?
Your journey ends here. With this buttermilk ranch dressing recipe, you will only need three ingredients that will change your life forever! My kids love “mommy’s special dressing” on salads more than I can rave about. With that said, Be sure to grab the ingredients on your next grocery store visit.
What mayonnaise brand to use?
I highly recommend using Best Foods brand or Hellman’s brand. Another brand I recently came across that is very tasty is Wilsey and is sometimes available at Costco in large tubs. If you want to try a healthier version of mayo, then my all time favorite is Follow Your Heart Soy Free Mayo. However, for this recipe I recommend sticking with the ones mentioned earlier.
It’s that good!
My kids were eating the dressing by the spoonful the first day I made this dressing (and so was I). You see, they love BBQ Chicken Pizza and store bought ranch never EVER does justice. Am I right? or am I right?
How can I make a spicy buttermilk ranch dressing?
Add a jalapeno to the mixture. If you want it to be even spicier then, serrano chili peppers work well. Kick it up a notch and add some cilantro if your heart desires.
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
What is the difference between Hellman’s and Best Foods Mayonnaise?
I’ve read that “Best Foods” brands are available on the west of the Rocky Mountains whereas “Hellman’s” is available on the east side of them. Interesting, no?
Restaurant Style Buttermilk Ranch Recipe
A ranch dressing made with three simple ingredients, which can be combined to give you a restaurant quality ranch dressing.
- 1 oz package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Package (or equivalent)
- 1 cup Best Foods Brand or Hellman's Regular Mayonnaise (trust me)
- 1 cup buttermilk
Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender for about 15 seconds.
Chill for about 30 minutes.
NOTE: The dressing is good in the fridge until the buttermilk's expiration date, but I am sure you will finish it before then ;).
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing packages by hidden valley can be substituted, but in my experience the regular ranch seasoning one ounce package has been the best with flavor.
Want to make a wedge salad?
Elegant and tasty, right? Cut Romaine lettuce in half or quarters leaving a little bit of the end piece intact (you can also use iceberg lettuce). Take out the center most part of the lettuce, which is primarily the most bitter in Romaine Lettuce. Then fill it with your favorite ingredients! YOU FANCY HUH?
